Did Plant reject Branson's Led Zeppelin plans?

Rumours swirl that Robert Plant has turned down an offer worth 'hundreds of millions of dollars' from Richard Branson. The Virgin entrepreneur has reportedly offered Plant, Page and bassist John Paul Jones £190 million each to reform the Led Zeppelin for 35 shows, but Plant refused. An unnamed source told the tbe Daily Mirror "Jimmy, John and Jason (Bonham) signed up immediately. It was a no-brainer for them but Robert asked for 48 hours to think about it. When he said no and ripped up the paperwork he had been given, there was an enormous sense of shock. There is no way they can go ahead without him".

Writing on the Virgin website, Branson said: "I've been left dazed and confused by a story doing the rounds this week about us apparently offering Led Zeppelin £500 million to reform and carry out a tour. As much as I love the band, there is absolutely no truth to the story".
