Anglo For Your Ear: Led Zeppelin Reunited

It’s already old news, but it’s exciting nonetheless: Led Zeppelin‘s back together! As reported months ago, it will be a tribute to the late Ahmet Ertegun, the Atlantic Records founder who passed away last year. They will play the O2 Arena on November 12th. Word has it that Mick Jagger could also play the gig. And no, Dave Grohl won’t play drums for the band: Jason Bonham, son of late drummer John Bonham, will get behind the set.

Want a ticket? You’d better think fast: demand is so high the site for tickets has crashed.

In honor of the reunion, I’ve posted the video for my fave Zep track, “Over the Hills and Far Away.”

NOTE: I’ll be in D.C. tomorrow. Therefore, the next Anglophenia entry will be on Friday.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
