Who’s the latest to slam Led Zeppelin’s reunion plans? Paul Weller, of course…
World Entertainment News Network reports that legendary mod miserabilist Paul Weller is the latest to jump on the bandwagon and beef about Led Zeppelin’s comeback plans.
Weller also insisted he will never reform his former band, The Jam.
Zep members Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham announced in October that they plan to tour in 2009 without frontman Robert Plant.
But Weller hit out at Pagey and co for deciding to re-form without Percy — announcing he has “no interest” in seeing them play live next year and would “never consider a similar comeback for The Jam”.
Weller added: “There’s no point to it. I don’t understand the need for nostalgia.
“I don’t get it. I don’t know where it’s come from.
“I’ve no interest whatsoever to go and see people re-form, you know. I’m happy with what they’ve done at the time and the records and your memories, and that’s it really.”
It is indeed.
