Q Prime Goes to Reddit to Answer Questions about Led Zeppelin

Reddit users found out last Thursday that Led Zeppelin is unlikely to reunite and tour, Jimmy Page is selecting never-before-heard material for the upcoming Led Zeppelin box set and Led Zeppelin's music "is up for discussion" to be added to on-demand streaming services. These insights were shared in a Q&A on tech-heavy social news website Reddit while Q Prime co-founder Peter Mensch drove a small Q Prime contingent to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania to see the Q Prime-managed rock band Dawes.

Among the revelations in the AMA:

-- A Led Zeppelin reunion is unlikely. " Does your gut tell you if Zeppelin will ever reunite and tour or play another show ever again?" one person asked. "Honestly, my gut tells me they won't," Q Prime replied.

-- Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page is busy finding never-before-heard recordings for an upcoming Led Zeppelin box sets and has made "no progress" on his forthcoming solo album. Each album's cover art will be the original cover art. Artist Shepard Fairy, who created the artwork for Led Zeppelin's recent Celebration Day release, "is not involved." Some of the box sets "will come out later this year" but "time is a fungible thing" with Led Zeppelin.

-- The addition of Led Zeppelin's catalog to on-demand subscription services is "up for discussion." Earlier this year Q Prime was said to have been shopping exclusive rights to Led Zeppelin's catalog to various on-demand services. Sources told Billboard they expect the band's music to available for streaming early this year but apparently no deal has been reached months later.
