Led Zeppelin Goes Digi


Posted October 15, 2007 - By Frank Meyer

Young fans of Led Zeppelin rejoice!

The legendary UK hard rock band’s music is finally digital when Warner Music Group makes its entire catalog available to download starting Nov. 13 as full albums or via a la carte downloads.

Plus, Verizon Wireless will become the first mobile music service provider to deliver Led Zeppelin full-song over-the-air downloads, ringtones, ringback tones, alert tones and wallpapers by way of an exclusive partnership with Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and company.

"The addition of the digital option will better enable fans to obtain our music in whichever manner that they prefer," guitarist Page said in a statement.

The digital release coincides quite nicely with the release of new 24-track, two-CD Atlantic/Rhino compilation called Mothership, a newly remixed and remastered version of the The Song Remains The Same soundtrack featuring six unreleased song out Nov. 20, and a one-off Nov. 26 reunion gig at a salute Atlantic Records co-founder and chairman emeritus Ahmet Ertegun, who died last December. Dead drummer John Bonham will be replaced by his son, Jason.

Oh…and I said “young fans of Led Zeppelin rejoice,” because most fans who were around when they actually existed are still listening to vinyl and think digital music and downloads are for space aliens and future-men.
