The idea has gone down like an iron airship

Sun readers will have spent their weekend in a state of heightened excitement, what with Captain Gordon's pages announcing exclusively back on Friday that Robert Plant had signed up for a Led Zep reunion. The only worry, of course, is if their bank would still be solvent by the time the tickets went on sale.

Oddly, though, Gordon's writer Jess Rogers and his unnamed source turned out to be slightly wide of the mark - let's put it down to confusion, shall we? - as Robert Plant has made it clear there's no reunion:

"It's both frustrating and ridiculous for this story to continue to rear its head when all the musicians that surround the story are keen to get on with their individual projects and move forward," Plant said.

"I wish Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham nothing but success with any future projects."

We expect Gordon to run some sort of catch-up for those of his readers who still believe the "ridiculous" exclusive he ran last week.
