Led Zeppelin Celebration Day Trailer

Second only to the Beatles, no band's fan base has wanted a runion more than Led Zeppelin's.  That would be impossible as drummer John Bohnam died in 1980.  However, Bohnam's son Jason, an extremely accomplished drummer in his own right, has often been raised by fans as a potential replacement.

For years, various reasons have prevented the band from "reuniting."  Sure, there was that whole appearance at Live Aid in 1985, but with Phil Collins on drums, it just didn't seem like the real thing.

Then in 2007, the band did get together for a concert in support of a charity of Ahmet Ertegun, the recently deceased founder of Atlantic Records.  The London concert probably holds the record of having the toughest ticket to get, and remains the only reunion the band has done before or since.

Thankfully, the concert was filmed, and coming this October, rock fans will finally get a chance to partake with those other lucky concertgoers:

As a huge Zeppelin fan, I can't wait for this event.  It will be even more fun to see who will be in the theater with me, as Zep has seemed to have translated very well to the younger generations.

It's been a long time since I rock and rolled...
