Page And Plant Reunite

Robert Plant and Jimmy Page have agreed to put aside their personal issues and reunite, at least for one show. The former Led Zeppelin bandmates will share the stage at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland on July 7 as part of a special event called Good Rockin' Tonight: A Tribute To Sun Records. The concert is sponsored by Seattle's Experience Music Project, and it also features Sun Records veterans Jerry Lee Lewis, Billy Lee Riley, Sonny Burgess, and blues great Little Milton. The house band will be fronted by British guitarist Chris Spedding, known for his work with acts including Paul McCartney, Elton John, Roger Daltrey, and the Moody Blues, among others. There's no word on whether or not Page and Plant will continue to work together on other projects. Page has been laying low since a back injury forced him to end his tour with the Black Crowes last year, and Plant starts a short North American tour with his new band Strange Sensation in Boston on May 25. Last year, Page told LAUNCH that any delay in working together again rested squarely on Plant's shoulders. "We finished our last date together--we played Amnesty International in Paris--and I've spent most of my time trying to propose scenarios whereby we could do this or we could do that, and Robert didn't want to do anything, and kept postponing this and postponing that and canceling this and canceling that," Page said. "In the end, I just lost patience." -- Bruce Simon, New York and Gary Graff, Detroit (launch.com)
