    When you're Led Zeppelin, you can do whatever the fuck you want, Download Festival organizer Andy Copping quickly learned. The promoter extended an invite to the band to headline the annual, three-day festival, held in the English countryside, but he was turned down flat. According to band management, the festival is "not what they want to do at the moment." However, it's certainly what AC/DC, Motorhead, Them Crooked Vultures and Aerosmith want to do from June 11 through June 13, as those bands are all set to perform.
