Could it be true? Is Led Zeppelin finally reuniting. Many in the industry have tried to make it happen, including offering huge paydays, all to no avail. But three words from Rob Plant published on his web site have sparked new hopes that the band is getting back together.
The front page of Robert Plant‘s official web site has been taken over by three words: “Any time now…” Their appearance sent the internet into a frenzy yesterday.
Is a Led Zeppelin reunion finally going to happen ? Perhaps, though there have been no other leaks suggesting it before or after Plant’s cryptic declaration.
We’re betting that Plant is simply teasing a new album. It would be his first since 2014’s “Lullaby and the Ceaseless Roar.”

It’s hard to imagine listening to Led Zeppelin‘s “Stairway To Heaven” without remembering the classic “No ‘Stairway’ — denied!” scene in Wayne’s World. Once voted the No. 1 greatest guitar solo ever, the classic-rock staple is one of many great solos and guitar-playing styles that we’ve been handed over the years.
“Stairway” is one of many songs we’ve included in World Cafe’s celebration of International Guitar Month, observed each April since 1987. We’ve curated a Spotify playlist of great guitarists and guitar solos to celebrate the glory of an instrument whose origins have been traced back to as early as the eighth century.
Whether you’re into Neil Young‘s simple but powerful guitar solo on “Down By The River,” Joni Mitchell‘s open-tuning beauty “Coyote,” Prince‘s burning solo on “Purple Rain,” Joe Walsh’s wah-wah funk on the James Gang’s “Funk #49,” B.B. King‘s iconic solo on “The Thrill Is Gone” or the wild genius of Wilco‘s Nels Cline on “Impossible Germany,” have a listen as we celebrate the guitar’s many styles and sounds.
