(Newser) – If "attend Led Zeppelin reunion concert" is on your bucket list, you may want to think of an alternate entry. At a London Q&A yesterday after a launch of Zeppelin reissues, Jimmy Page said of a reunion, "I don't think it looks as though that's on the cards, so there's not much more I can say about that." The iconic band's guitarist has long made clear his desire for a reunion, something more permanent than the 2007 show the band played at London's O2 Arena, but yesterday he said, "I'm not going to give you a detail-by-detail account of what one person says and another person says. All I can say is it just doesn't look very likely." He did note he wants to put together a new band and start playing shows next year, Rolling Stone reports, and he said those shows would include "material that spanned my recording career."
