Gene Simmons has claimed that Led Zeppelin turned down an offer of “a few hundred million dollars” to reform. The Kiss bassist was apparently given the money by a concert promoter who hoped that Simmons’ relationship with the band would make them more likely to agree.
According to The Sun, Simmons said: “In 2009/10 I was given a few hundred million dollars in an account by a large concert promoter and given the task of reaching out to Jimmy and Robert and trying to convince them to get back together. Of course, it didn’t work. Robert just doesn’t want to do it”.
Well I hope he gave the money back.
