Robert Plant, the world famous ex-singer of supergroup Led Zeppelin, is the patron of the record label, MAS Records, and has been integral to the development of this innovative project. BBC Hereford and Worcester's Web Producer Dan Johnson asked the legendary rocker what it was all about.

Many, many emails with various websites that talk about a reunion tour - http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2002471692,00.html & http://www.relix.com/cgi-bin/content_list.cgi?type=news.
When it comes to classic rockers, teens' musical tastes span many decades, as seen by the 37 percent of teens who are listening to rock legends Led Zeppelin and the 32 percent that listen to the Beatles. Moving ahead to the 1980s, one quarter of teens surveyed predict that Boston is the 80s band most likely to make a comeback. Boy George was second on the list with 22 percent expecting his triumphant return to the stage.

Rumors of a Led Zeppelin reunion tour in 2003 are rampant, but drummer Jason Bonham, son of the late Zep pounder John Bonham, says he has not been contacted by Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, or John Paul Jones. "No. Not even approached," he said in Toronto recently, while on tour with Indiana rock band Healing Sixties. "I spoke to Jimmy briefly before I came on tour. I was telling him what I was doing. I'm playing in England with some other friends of mine called the London Quireboys and he was just inquiring what I was up to and wishing me luck in what I was doing. So there was no word from there and I haven't spoken with Robert in quite a long time." Jason Bonham first joined the remaining members of Led Zeppelin onstage at a 40th anniversary concert for Atlantic Records in 1988, then at the 1995 induction of the band into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He also drummed on Page's Outrider Tour in 1988. His last group, the Jason Bonham Band, included a Zep Set. Asked if he would abandon his Healing Sixties plans for a Zep tour, Bonham responds, "Would I? If they asked me, of course. Anyone would look to play with them." Meanwhile, a Led Zeppelin DVD is being readied for release next year in 5.1 surround sound. --Karen Bliss
Christmas already! How the time flies.

As you may have noticed I have not been touring this year as hoped. Events and builders have conspired against it for the past months but I hope to get back on course in 2003. I have meanwhile been honing various musical skills and working on some new instruments. I have also been singing quite a bit more and will soon unleash a value added JPJ!

Work also continues on the forthcoming Led Zeppelin DVD, it all looks and sounds very exciting and should be coming out soon. I am still reminded what an incredible band it was, (excuse the modesty;-) I think that sightings of us meeting for this project have given rise to many rumours of reunions etc., but rumours they are.

In the meantime I hope that you all have pleasant and peaceful holiday and look forward to seeing you in the New Year.

Best Wishes
John Paul Jones
