Five years ago this week, Led Zeppelin fans young and old squeezed their pants full of lemon juice when the band's three surviving golden gods -- Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones - announced that they'd be reuniting for a one-off concert in London. John Bonham's son Jason would man the skins.
The show was part of a tribute to the late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, a renowned champion of global superstars from Ray Charles to the Rolling Stones. All of the proceeds would go to scholarships in his name. For all Zepheads cared, however, the concert could have been held in tribute to desiccated dog dicks.
For the first time since Bonzo's death in 1980, tickets with the words "Led Zeppelin" on them would be printed up and sold to the public. This was big.
