Report: Led Zeppelin Planning To Stream Archival Concerts

According to LedZepNews, Led Zeppelin have filed a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the phrase “The Led Zeppelin Experience.” The moniker is expected to be used for a new streaming service featuring archival concerts. It was specifically filed for live recordings with the purpose of “providing non-downloadable prerecorded music online via a global computer network.” The report goes on to say the band have trademarked “Led Zeppelin Experience” in Europe as well and that it will also cover “outerwear, hats, footwear and other clothing items.” This news comes after Jason Bonham changed the name of his tribute band from Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience to Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening.

Smashing Pumpkins Have “Hundreds Of Songs” In The Vaults Ready For Release

According to Blabbermouth, Billy Corgan recently confirmed to Beats 1 that Smashing Pumpkins have a bunch of previously unreleased music that they want to release. In fact, the band have so much that the frontman says they “could literally never record another song and have a release every two months for the next 20 years.”

Corgan said the following:

“I’m really excited by the re-rise of the vinyl record shop and the fact that there is there is this beautiful balance now between vinyl releases and streaming services. We’re going to just start unloading the archives — and we have archives for decades.”

When asked how much material they have, Corgan said “You can’t even imagine,” while drummer Jimmy Chamberlin added that there were “hundreds of [finished] songs.”

Corgan continued:

“It’s insane how much work there is. We could literally never record another song and have a release every two months for the next 20 years. Easy. There’s alternate versions, there’s live versions, there’s acoustic versions. So we’re going to actually kill people with content.”

Before they start going to the archives, the group will release their new album “Shiny And Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun.” on November 16.
