Led Zeppelin haven't ruled out the release of more previously unheard material.

The band are set to release new versions of their first three albums, featuring unheard live tracks and unreleased studio songs, in June .

Guitarist Jimmy Page told Rolling Stone magazine: "There's certainly more things that can be done.

"But these reissues took a lot of time, and I don't want to start proposing another project, because it'll take me another six months or a year.

"I'd rather spend time practising my guitar and going out to play."

Jimmy, 70, spent over two years listening to old tapes to select the best unreleased recordings from the back catalogue to feature on the companion discs for the reissued albums.

The band split in 1980, following the death of drummer John Bonham. The surviving members reunited in 2007 for a concert at London's O2.

Lead singer Robert Plant recently said that there was "zero" chance of Led Zeppelin reforming again.

Begin now, while you have some stellar cosmic energy at your back. Great things can happen if you take a risk.More
