Led Zep Working On New Material

Led Zeppelin drummer Jason Bonham has let it slip that the band is working on new material.
Jason, son of original Zep drummer John and his father's stand in at the band's reunion gig at the O2 Arena last year, said: "I've been working with Jimmy [Page] and John Paul [Jones] and trying to do some new material and some writing. I don't know what it will be, but it will be something.
"At the moment, all I know is I have the great pleasure to go and jam with the two guys and start work on some material. When I get there, I never ask any questions. If I get a phone call to go and play, I enjoy every moment of it. Whatever it ends up as, to get a chance to jam with two people like that, it is a phenomenal thing for me."
However, he said actually recording a new album could be a long way off: "Lots of politics [would need to] get ironed out [if an album was to be recorded, but] the possibility of doing something is in the cards. I really felt it was on the cards from the moment we walked offstage at the O2."
