This year marks the 50th anniversary of the formation of LED ZEPPELIN, and the surviving members are celebrating the occasion with the official illustrated book, “Led Zeppelin By Led Zeppelin”, covering the band’s career chronologically from its first concert in September 1968 through the 2007 one-off reunion show. It is a unique collaboration between Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones, who have given Reel Art Press unrestricted access to the LED ZEPPELIN archive.
Asked in a brand new interview with Mark Goodman of SiriusXM Volume‘s “Debatable” if he has additional projects in mind to coincide with LED ZEPPELIN‘s half-century anniversary, Page said (hear audio below): “I’ve always got things in mind, and I always think of things as a schedule of releases over a period of time. I’ve never been, actually, any different. And, obviously, I would have ideas of things or projects which could go ahead, but, you know, it all takes time. So, at the moment, we’ve got this [book] out, so that’s really brilliant. And who knows what may come further on down the line? I don’t know. So I can’t really say at this point.”
Pressed about possible new material from him in 2019, Page responded: “Ah, well, that’s a different story. Yes, you’ll definitely be getting stuff from Jimmy Page; I can guarantee that.”
Released this past March was a newly remastered reissue of the LED ZEPPELIN 2003 live collection, “How The West Was Won”. The set, which features new remastering supervised by Page, marked the first offering from the band in celebration of its 50th anniversary.
In September, LED ZEPPELIN released three new digital-only collections. Available now are “Led Zeppelin X Led Zeppelin”; “An Introduction To Led Zeppelin”; and “Rock And Roll (Sunset Sound Mix)”.
