Led Zeppelin: "Reunion Is Unlikely", Says "Celebration Day" Director Dick Carruthers

The director behind Led Zeppelin's new concert movie "Celebration Day" has told that any future reunion is unlikely as the project merely captured a magical musical moment in time.

In 2007 the band came together to honour late mentor Ahmet Ertegun in London and they asked video director and frequent collaborator Dick Carruthers to shoot the one-off gig and beam images onto screens set up at the O2 Arena. 

Years later, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones opted to dig the footage out of the band's vaults and take a look. 

Carruthers says, "As John Paul Jones says, five years is five minutes in Zeppelin time... There's a band who, if they wanna sit on something until the time is right, they will. They're not hurried by any of the commercial pressures that might apply to another band. 

"All that happened was several years later, there was just a phone call and they said, 'Well, can we have a look at it then? Let's get the stuff out and let's have a look at it.' 

"So we had two viewing days and we showed them what you call a line cut... and they were pretty blown away. I hadn't really seen the footage either and we realised it was something very special indeed." 



  1. awesome. Shows the etherical heights bthe band and its members reached. One of a few bands that have reached the top of the prism and gone beyond, along with Pink Floyd....Paul Davies

  2. Yeah, totally agree with you on that. I`m very exited about the "Celebration Day" film.
