Led Zeppelin without Plant?
Rolling Stone issued an article in their latest issue that informed the public that the classic, legendary band Led Zeppelin will be reuniting, but will reunite without their lead singer, Robert Plant.
Do you think this is wrong?
After their reunion within the past year, rumors have circulated that Led Zeppelin would be getting back together. Unfortunately, since that point, Plant started a new project with Allison Krauss, even winning a Grammy for their song "Gone, Gone, Gone." Plant would rather continue doing his own projects than reunite with Led Zeppelin.
Plant released a statement in which he called reports of a Led Zeppelin reunion "frustrating and ridiculous." He said he would not be recording or touring with the band before adding, "I wish Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham nothing but success with any future projects."
Thus, Led Zeppelin is trying out new singers for their new project they're putting out. From John Paul Jones, the group's founding bassist: "We want to do it. It's sounding great and we want to get and get out there," he told the British radio program in an interview broadcast Monday. "It's got to be right. There's no point in just finding another Robert."
Potential replacement for Plant: Myles Kennedy, lead singer of Alter Bridge.
But, they would not keep the Led Zeppelin name on this project to be fair to the true foursome of Led Zeppelin. But would they play the same songs? They'd have to, I'd think, if they wanted the big crowd and the big tour.
What do you think of this replacement? Do you think it would be Led Zeppelin without Robert Plant? How would the tour go without Plant?
And why wouldn't Plant want to reunite?
