(hennemusic) As Led Zeppelin promote the June release of expanded reissues of their first three albums, Robert Plant is once again being asked to address the issue of a reunion tour.

Seven years after the group teamed up with Jason Bonham (son of their late drummer, John) to perform a special one-off show at London's 02 Arena - which resulted in the "Celebration Day" release - the singer tells Rolling Stone unapologetically, "A tour would have been an absolute menagerie of vested interests and the very essence of everything that's sh*tty about about big-time stadium rock. We were surrounded by a circus of people that would have had our souls on the fire. I'm not part of a jukebox!"

"Do you know why the Eagles said they'd reunite when 'hell freezes over,' but they did it anyway and keep touring?" Plant asks his interviewer. "It's not because they were paid a fortune. It's not about the money. It's because they're bored. I'm not bored." more on this story
