They once ruled the world as the biggest and most influential rock band of all time, but if Robert Plant has anything to say about it, Led Zeppelin will not be reuniting anytime soon, despite the hefty paycheck he would receive.
Richard Branson apparently offered the three surviving members of Led Zeppelin (Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones) a staggering $800 million for a thirty five-date concert tour. It would have roughly given each of the three surviving bandmembers about $300 million to reunite.
The son of the late John Bonham, Jason Bonham, would also be given a hefty wage to drum for the band on the tour. Page, Jones and Bonham agreed to sign up for the tour, while frontman and vocalist Plant outright refused.
Fans of the legendary rockers have been praying for a reunion since the disbanding over the band thirty years ago (the only time since the 1980 breakup was in 2007 at a special performance at the o2 Arena). It is clear that we will likely never see the band tour again, because Plant's refusal to tour with the band seems to be rooted in moral objection that not even money can persuade.
