Is Led Zeppelin Reunion on the Cards for 2014?

Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant has hinted that the band may reunite next year.
After years of snubbing the idea, the 64-year-old rocker said he would be up for a reunion but the final decision lies with former bandmates Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones.
"I've got nothing to do in 2014," he told Tara Brown on Australia's 60 Minutes TV programme.
Although the British band reformed briefly in 2007 for a one-off gig at London's O2 Arena, there has not been any talk of a comeback until now. They played that gig with Jason Bonham on drums, the son of their original drummer, John Bonham,
"[In 2007] we just wanted to play and see what it was like and be good once," Plant said. "It was time to be good - and we were."
Plant denied claims that he was the main obstacle to a full reunion and blamed Page and Jones' silence on the fact that they are born under the sign of Capricorn.
"They don't say a word. They're quite contained in their own worlds and they leave it to me. I'm not the bad guy. You need to see the Capricorns," he said.
It will be the first time the band has played together since 10 December 2007 where they were joined by Jason Bonham, son of the band's first drummer, John Bonham, who died in 1980.
Led Zeppelin found fame in the 70s and are one of the best-selling, most successful, heavy rock groups of all time.
Their songs include Stairway to Heaven, Dazed and Confused, Since I've Been Loving You, Rock and Roll, and Kashmir.
Band members are in talks with online firms to stream their back catalogue over the internet.
