Manager Declares the Death of Led Zeppelin

Jimmy Page’s manager has played down reports of a possible Led Zeppelin reunion without Robert Plant. Speaking to Music Radar, Peter Mensch said, "Led Zeppelin are over! If you didn't see them in 2007, you missed them. It's done. I can't be any clearer than that."
Plant has said he wouldn't consider playing with the band for a good two years, as he continues to tour behind the Raising Sand record with Alison Krauss. While Mensch admitted that Led Zeppelin's three other members auditioned some possible Plant replacements, he insists, "no one worked out... There are absolutely no plans for them to continue. Zero. Frankly, I wish everybody would stop talking about it."
Zing! One catch, though: Mensch said he has no idea what Page's plans are for the rest of 2009, so maybe he isn't in the loop after all.
