Led Zeppelin trio back in studio
Encouraging news for all those "Led Heads"
Led Zeppelin musicians Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham have been working on new material.
Drummer Bonham told a radio station in Detroit that the songs could be destined for a new Led Zeppelin album.
Writing new material has been "on the cards" since the band's one-off reunion show in London last December.
But lead singer Robert Plant has not been involved in any of the sessions, he added.
Jason Bonham is of course the son of original drummer John Bonham who died in 1980
"At the moment, all I know is I have the great pleasure to go and jam with the two guys and start work on some material," he said.
"When I get there [in the studio] I never ask any questions. If I get a phone call to go and play, I enjoy every moment of it.
"Whatever it ends up as, to ever get a chance to jam with two people like that, it is a phenomenal thing for me. It's my life. It's what I've dreamed about doing."
He added: "Lots of politics [would need to] get ironed out [before an album could be made]."
Robert Plant has been working and touring constantly over the last year with Alison Krause
Led Zeppelin played their first concert in 19 years in front of nearly 20,000 fans at London's 02 arena in December.
Their two-hour set opened with Good Times Bad Times - the first track of their debut album.
Original band members Page, Plant and Jones were joined on stage by Jason Bonham - the son of their late drummer John.
Jason has been a fill in drummer for special Led Zeppelin engagements over a decade.
Although Page, Jones, and Bonham have expressed the strong desire to tour as Led Zeppelin, Plant has consistently opposed a full tour and has responded negatively to questions about another reunion. In a January, 2008 interview, he stated that he does no want to "go around and around like a bunch of bored old men following the Rolling Stones around."
Possibly not wanting to relive the past or profit in past glory, but to live in the now with new and unique projects. However most all Zepplin fans would not chide them for rolling out the Zepplin machine again and profiting from it. Now those are some tickets I would be willing to pay those insane prices for.
