Led Zeppelin Perform with the Foo FIghters

The rumours through the week ran that Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham would reunite on-stage with the Foo Fighters Saturday night. The rumours where 2/3 true, as Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones performed Rock and Roll and Ramble On with the Foo Fighters during the final encore at Wembley Stadium in London.

The Zeppelin duo joined the Foos to play Rock and Roll with Dave Grohl on drums and Taylor Hawkins singing. Grohl and Hawkins then switched places for Ramble On. In the past Grohl has intimated that he would be willing to drum for Zeppelin should they reunite, so this event probably falls in the dream come true category for Grohl. However, there is no indication that anybody in camp Zeppelin is unhappy with Bonham, or that Bonham is dumb enough to turn down the payday should he be offered, so expect this to be a one off.

Update: Video now available of Rock and Roll. How long it will stay up is anybody's guess:
