Led Zeppelin tour dead for now — Jimmy Page

The film, a love letter to the electric guitar, features Page, U2 guitarist The Edge, and White Stripes frontman Jack White discussing their musical backgrounds and jamming with each other on a soundstage.

Page and Jones are founding band members, while Bonham is the son of original drummer John Bonham, who died in 1980.
