This is the most joyous news short of Osama bin Laden dying in a plane crash or President Bush drinking a smart drink…

Led Zeppelin is reuniting for a tour. (I’m American, so Led Zeppelin is singular, not plural.)

Yes, you read that right.

This is one of those things I thought I’d never, ever see. Zep again, on the road, wailin’ and bangin’ and squeezin’ lemons till the joice runs down our legs across the globe. Word is that Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones are in talks this week making plans. I presume Jason Bonham, John’s son, will be filling in on the kit.

The hopes are that the tour will kick off in London in November.
