Led Zeppelin Reunite for Ertegün Tribute Concert
Start saving your money for Led Zeppelin's reunion concert (John Bonham's son Jason is subbing for his deceased dad on the drum kit), which takes place Nov. 26 at London's O2 Arena. This will be a tribute to the late Ahmet Ertegün, the Atlantic Records founder/producer/executive who signed Zep, among many other music biz superstars. Other artists performing at the concert include Pete Townshend, Bill Wyman and the Rhythm Kings, Foreigner and Paolo Nutini.
Tickets will cost you £125 per, which will be available by ballot only, due to the anticipated demand to see one of the world's most popular heavy rock bands, who recorded six stone-classic LPs during their existence.
Also, says the press release, “Profits from this amazing show will go to the Ahmet Ertegün Education Fund, which provides students with annual scholarships to universities in the UK, USA and Turkey. In addition, a music scholarship open to all will be established at Ravensbourne College in the UK.”
Here, because you need coolin' and I'm not foolin', is a video of the second greatest psychedelic blues song ever (“Dazed and Confused” just nudges it out for the top spot).
