Led Zeppelin to play London concert on November 26

Led Zeppelin will perform a charity concert in London in November.

The New York Times reported today that three of the four original members of Led Zeppelin--Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones--will play a charity concert in London on November 26. Jason Bonham, son of Zep's original drummer John Bonham, who died in 1980, will fill in for his father.

The show will be a tribute to Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records. Zeppelin sold 100,000,000 plus records on Atlantic, so it's kinda nice the guys are showing respect for the man who believed in them from the start. The single performance show also includes Pete Townshend, Bill Wyman, and Foreigner. I'm sure the fans will go nuts, but I'll pass. The idea of seeing my heroes creaking about, trying to capture their former greatness is a sad, sad thing. I'll wait for the CD and DVD.
