Now come to grips with the fact that this is probably the closest we'll get. Robert Plant has officially out the kibosh on a tour. Read all the details in the LA Times, but Plant would rather keep working with Allison Krauss than his old fishing buddies. Even if it cost him $200 million.
Yep - the standing offer would net he, Page and Jones $200 million - EACH.
In a London Daily Mirror story, a band source said: "Despite the enormous offer, the decision did not come down to money. They always said they would do the one-off show and then see how they felt. Jimmy had enjoyed the concert in December enough to want to tour. He argued they still had something to offer. He likes the idea of another chapter in the band - the grown-up tour. John Paul Jones sided with Jimmy. He loved making music with the others again. But, Robert wanted to leave last year's concert as their legacy. They had proved they could still do it and that was enough."
Whatever. His, and our, loss.
