New album from Led Zeppelin - anybody r-e-a-l-l-y surprised?

According to BBC Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham have been working on new material that Jaspon apparently told a radio station in Detroit could be destined for a new Led Zeppelin album.

The Led Zeppelin lead singer Robert Plant has so far not been part of the sessions and there's also according to the BBC article a lot of politics that need be ironed out before a new album could be released.

Radio Dupree's take on things is that with just about every group that ever had a hit reforming to make a few extra dollars/pounds/whatever, the reunion of Led Zeppelin is just a few contracts away.
If they're already recording - albeit without Robert Plant - they should be able to work through the politics as there's m-o-n-e-y to be made. And we're not just talking money for the members of the band. There are a lot of people that could make a lot of money from a reunion tour. Add a new album and ... well... you do the math.

If you - like us - tend to forget, mey we remind you that Led Zeppelin played their first concert in 19 years in front of nearly 20,000 fans at London's 02 arena in December 2007.

The original band members Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones were joined on stage by Jason Bonham; son of their late drummer John Bonham.
