Legendary rockers Led Zeppelin have refused their permission to allow their performance at fundraiser Live Aid to feature on a forthcoming DVD that hopes to raise even more money for the charity.
The original footage features Led Zep performing in Philadelphia with Phil Collins standing in for the late John Bonham. This was the first reunion performance since the drummerâ€™s death in 1980.
Claims that the band were unsatisfied with their performance were reported in yesterdays Sunday Times. Rumours at the time of the performance indicated that Collinsâ€™ was left ailing with jetlag after having performed with Sting in London and then Led Zep in Philadelphia and this was one factor that caused their performance to be under par.
A spokeswoman for the band did not state the bands reasons for not allowing the footage to be shown on the DVD; she did however say that "I don't think it is because they don't like appearing on compilations."
The 10 hour long DVD will be released in time for Christmas this year.
