Led Zeppelin Reunite for 'Celebration Day' Live DVD Press Conference

Three-quarters of Led Zeppelin convened Tuesday, along with late drummer John Bonham's son Jason, to discuss the release of their Celebration Day DVD, which chronicles the band's one-off reunion show at London's O2 Arena five years ago. (Watch highlights from the press conference above, plus glimpses of the concert film, which looks incredible, right?)

"We just really wanted to get it right and go out there to play to people who maybe never heard us, who had heard about this reputation and what we were about, and basically go out there, stand up and be counted for what we were," Jimmy Page said of the gig. 

But are they ever going to do it again? Like on a tour, perhaps? "It seems pretty unlikely, doesn't it? That's what I think," Page said.

The foursome were in good spirits, joking around and talking fondly of both the O2 concert and their reign in the '70s. Page noted he still prefers vinyl as his musical delivery device to this day and recommends avoiding Led Zeppelin MP3s, perhaps unaware that plenty of young fans will be mulling the digital edition of this new release.

Celebration Day drops November 19; pre-order here.
