Here comes another round of Led Zeppelin reunion rumors.
The revered rock band’s three surviving members — Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and current Rolling Stone cover boy Jimmy Page — have been confirmed for a rare TV interview on The Late Show With David Letterman next week, EW can exclusively announce.
The Led Zep vets have been spending a fair amount of time together lately as they promote this month’s Celebration Day, the DVD/CD version of the reunion-ish concert that they staged in London back in 2007. And as we reported last month, the trio’s recent encounters with the press have resulted in “politely terse” to “cheekily hostile” interactions, especially regarding the question of a band reunion. All of this should hopefully make their chat with Dave an interesting one.
And for those wondering, Paloma Faith is booked as Letterman’s musical guest that night. So unless an incredibly bizarre collaboration goes down, it’s unlikely that Led Zep will be rocking out Ed Sullivan Theater.
At any rate, the interview will air on Monday, Dec. 3 — which, in fact, is the day after both Letterman and the band’s members will be honored at the 35th Annual Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C. CBS will also be airing that event, though not until Dec. 26.
