If what’s rumored to be happening actually goes down, 2012 could be remembered in music history as the year of the reunion. Let us recap a few industry-shaking reunions that have already taken place:
Further Seems Forever, emo darlings of the early 2000s have reunited and are releasing an album with Chris Carraba (of the much more mainstream and commercially successful Dashboard Confessional) on vocals.
No Doubt has reunited – their first single in many years, “Settle Down,” is out.
And of course, there’s the still abuzz ska community reeling from the Five Iron Frenzy reunion announcement (ok, so that was 2011…but they are starting to become more active this year).
So what would be ultimate reunion? Well folks, plant your mind on this possibility which is sure to be a real page turner someday. Led Zeppelin. Yes, THAT Led Zeppelin. Our evidence? Well let us just say that if they don’t reunite, this will be brilliant viral marketing campaign that, well, I guess will serve some greater marketing purpose yet to be obvious to me. Their dormant Facebook page woke up recently with a status that simply said “Hello.” Then, they posted this picture:
You tell me what that means.
