"Despite media rumours that Cozy Powell, Carmine Appice, Barriemore Barlow, Simon Kirke, or Bev Bevan would join the group as his replacement, the remaining members decided to disband Led Zeppelin after Bonham's death. They issued a press statement on 4 December 1980 confirming that the band would not continue without its drummer. "We wish it to be known that the loss of our dear friend and the deep respect we have for his family, together with the sense of undivided harmony felt by ourselves and our manager, have led us to decide that we could not continue as we were." It was simply signed "Led Zeppelin"
don't worry about the source of that content...........its wikipedia. what really hit me was the strange co-incidence that i was born on the same day 5 years later i.e. 4th December 1985. i know this sounds amusing and so kiddish , but i really felt bad that my birth day co-incides with the official disbanding day of the greatest band of all time "Led Zeppelin".
i just got an idea..................more facts about 4th december and rock n roll:
