Jimmy Page: 'I don't see another Led Zeppelin reunion happening'

Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has dashed hopes of a band reformation by revealing that he can't see them playing together again.

The forthcoming release of the concert movie Celebration Day has sparked speculation that the legendary rock band might share a stage with each other again in the future, although the film's director Dick Carruthers seemingly ruled out the possibility of a reunion last month.

Now, in an interview with Rolling Stone, Page has dampened the prospect of the band reforming for futher shows. When asked about their plans for the future, he replied: I" think if there had been any more concerts to be done, we'd already be talking about them. So I don't see it."

When asked if Celebration Day marked a final chapter in Zeppelin's history, bassist John Paul Jones added cryptically: "When I move house, I never look back at the house and go, 'Oh, that's the last moment I'll see there.' I always move forward."

Celebration Day, which is a concert film of the band's 2007 appearance at London's 02 Arena, will screen in cinemas from October 17. It will then get a general DVD release on November 19. A deluxe edition will also include footage of the Shepperton rehearsals, as well as BBC news footage.
