Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has denied growing rumours that the legendary band are back in the studio recording material for their first all-new album since 1979’s In Through the Out Door. He insists talk of a new album is just “speculation”.

 

Drummer Jason Bonham – son of original member John Bonham who died in 1980 –recently revealed that he had been “jamming in the studio” with Jimmy Page and bassist John Paul Jones. But Page is adamant that reports about the band working on new material are completely untrue.

 

“We’re not actually really recording,” said Page, who will be 65 in January. “We played at the O2. That was our reunion. It’s true John Paul Jones, myself and Jason had a little sort of jam. But it’s nothing as monumental as what people are speculating and projecting.”

 

Page also insisted that if there were to be a world tour, it would have to wait until frontman Robert Plant finishes his highly successful Raising Sand tour with bluegrass star Alison Krauss(as reported in Sh-Boom! Magazine – July 15, 2008).

 

“If you’re going to do a reunion,” said Page, “you need four members.”

 

Rumours of a Led Zeppelin reunion tour and album have been rife since December 2007, when the band reformed with Jason Bonham for a concert at London’s O2 Arena. The show was a one-off in honour of Atlantic Records’ late founder Ahmet Ertegun, who helped launch the group in 1968. As soon as the concert was announced, millions of fans around the world rushed to buy the 20,000 available tickets.
