Read their lips -- no more Led Zeppelin reunions. That was the tenor of the group's press conference on Tuesday (October 9) at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City to promote the "Celebration Day" film of Zep's 2007 reunion show in London. Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones, along with stand-in drummer Jason Bonham, jousted with reporters at the session, with Plant even calling one scribe a "schmuck" for asking if the film's release might inspire the group to play together again. Plant groused that, "We're pretty good at what we do but the tail should never wag the dog, really. If we're capable of doing something, in our own time, that will be what will happen. So any inane questions from people who are from syndicated outlets, you should just really think about what it takes to answer a question like that in one second. We know what we've got, you know." Plant also explained that, "The responsibility of doing that four nights a week for the rest of time is a different thing. Expectations are a horrific thing. To do anything at all together is a terrible weight. Because sometimes we're f***ing awful." Page, who had previously told Rolling Stone magazine that he doesn't think Led Zep will ever play together again, told another reporter that, "At this time four years ago we'd have been rehearsing to get to the O2. In December it'll be five years since the O2. So, that's a number of years that pass in between, so that seems unlikely, if there wasn't a whisper, or a hint that we would get together to do something or other. I'd say even two years ago, or whatever. Seems pretty unlikely, that's what I think." "Celebration Day" will begin a limited run in theaters on October 17 (details at and then will be released on DVD, Blu-ray and CD on November 19.
