Plans for New Album in Munich, Plant Update (P.R.)
LED ZEPPELIN TO RECORD NEW ALBUM IN MUNICH THIS NOVEMBER - NO TOUR PLANS UNTIL PLANT'S ANKLE FULLY HEALS
November 13, 1975 - Led Zeppelin are recording a new album this month in Munich, Germany at Musicland Studios. The album is expected to be released sometime in the early part of 1976. The group has been rehearsing material for the new album over the summer at Studio Instrument Rentals in Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, it has been announced that while Robert Plant's ankle has healed substantially since its multiple fracture in a car crash on August 6th, he still is unable to perform and no Led Zeppelin tour in the world is currently scheduled. The cast on Plant's right ankle has been removed, but he still cannot put any weight on it. Another medical report on Plant's ankle is expected in February - but under no circumstances would any Zeppelin tour be scheduled before the summer, and no plans or arrangements of any kind will be made until Plant's ankle is fully healed. Plant's left elbow, which also fractured at the time of the accident, is almost completely healed now and he was seen throughout the summer at various concerts in L.A. and was universally considered to be in good spirits.
