So now everyone’s trying to out-guess each other as to which of the international summer festivals the reformed Led Zeppelin will be hitting up next year. Perhaps they’ll decide to play whatever sticky, smelly three-ring circus takes up residence in my home state next summer? Or perhaps one of its well-established U.K. equivalents? Perhaps!
The rock legends have apparently been in talks with Glastonbury head Michael Eavis about the mouth-watering prospect. They have even give the Worthy Farm owner a price for performing at the June event.
Despite the early talks, NME.com claims that the negotiations have broken down after the rock outfit’s representatives named too high a price, prompting Eavis to pull out.
Glastonbury, of course, has a capped fee that they are willing to pay artists — unlike many other major UK festivals.
Since every band-reformation rumor seems to come true these days if you wish upon a star, I’d like to ask Zeppelin (and the ghost of John Bonham, if possible) to add a stop at my house to rock for me while blogging one day. We can call it Idolatorfest and hold it on the deck if we have to. Make it happen, cosmos.
