Why Robert Plant Was Against Led Zeppelin Reunion Continuing

(hennemusic) Following the 2007 Led Zeppelin reunion concert at London's 02 Arena, fans anticipated that Zeppelin would carry on with drummer Jason Bonham behind the kit in place of his late father, John.

All reports indicate that Robert Plant was the lone hold-out preventing Zeppelin from moving forward, opting instead to concentrate on his solo work and his then-new project with Alison Krauss.

In a new interview with 98.7 The Gater in West Palm Beach, Bonham discussed the situation. "Robert and I spoke very long and hard about this," Jason explained. "And there's other reasons, and I respect him for that. He told me."

"I'll share one thing he said," continued Bonham. "'It doesn't matter how great you are on drums, Jason, I love you to bits and you play absolutely amazing. But John was the drummer in Led Zeppelin and John was part of me, Jimmy and John Paul. We shared something very, very special.' He said 'I struggle sometimes just thinking about trying to create some magic again. He's not there. He was a very, very dear friend of mine that he said 'I miss every day.'"
