Pipeline Person KellyR just sent me a link to this story in Rolling Stone, which features details about a full Led Zeppelin reunion in November. Of course a “full” reunion isn’t possible considering John Bonham’s condition has not improved, but it is noteworthy in itself that John Paul Jones will be playing with Page and Plant again. And hey, it’s pretty storybook that the dead drummer’s son will sit in for him on drums. I don’t know if Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey have kids, but if so it’s possible we could one day see The Who, only it will be progeny of the original members. It’s my understanding that’s the deal with Australian Pink Floyd, that it’s a band comprised entirely of offspring of original Pink Floyd members, all conceived during various Australian tours.
Anyway, if you read that Rolling Stone story you will see that this is in fact called “what must surely be the Holy Grail of rock reunions.” When I read that, I immediately thought of one of my favorite Onion pieces.
