Robert Plant quashes Led Zeppelin reunion claims

The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) Robert Plant says there is no truth to reports he turned down a lucrative offer from Virgin boss Richard Branson to play Led Zeppelin reunion shows.

A statement from Plant spokesman Ken Weinstein says the singer "has not been in receipt of any offers in recent months" about Led Zeppelin gigs, and hasn't met or communicated with Branson in 50 years.

Wednesday's statement said Plant was "disappointed with any confusion this current fabricated story may bring."

Citing a Led Zeppelin song, Branson said in a blog post he was "dazed and confused" by reports he had offered the band 500 million pounds ($800 million) to reform.

Led Zeppelin disbanded after drummer John Bonham died in 1980. Surviving members Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones last performed together in 2007.
