Carry On Regardless?
Posted Thu Nov 6, 2008 12:11pm PST by David Sheppard in The MOJO Blog

Roll over Terry Reid and tell Roy Harper the news; Led Zeppelin are set to tour, gobsmackingly minus iconic frontman Robert Plant who, after protracted touring with Alison Krauss, has announced himself hors de combat. The feelings of their figurehead apparently trampled underfoot (perhaps there's been a communication breakdown?), a suddenly galvanised Page, Jones and Bonham Jr, are said to be making a whole lotta Zep plans: world tours, new recordings et al. With Plant rooted, the trio have been auditioning replacement vocalists and one Myles Kennedy (born 1969--the year after Zep launched--and lately of US rockers Alter Bridge, it says here) is widely forecast as the next incumbent.

This is just wrong. I humbly beg any forum member living in London to seek out Jimmy Page and talk him out of this. Please.

I just texted Pagey and this is what he had to say to me:

"The three of us have wanted to go out on the road for a while now and I'm sure the fans want the same, but Planty-Pants seems to be resistant to the idea for no apparent reason. We're not getting any younger and if we don't tour soon we'll be too knackered to do it all. So we thought we'd try another singer. But who do we go for? A look- and sound-alike? A completely new singer who doesn't sound anything like Planty-Pants but compliments the music we wrote? Young, old? We just thought we'd audition people and see what happened. It's worked out well for Queen with Paul Rodgers, so why not us? By the way, Billy, can I have that 58 Les Paul I lent you a while back and can you show me the riff to Black Dog? I can't seem to get the timing right. Curry and lager sometime soon?"

So there you have it-straight from the horses mouth :wink: I'd rather see some sort of tour than nothing and in the mean time I'll go and see tribute bands like the brilliant 'Lets Zep'

Well at least it's good to see that Page hasn't fallen victim to "text speak", using complete words and proper punctuation. Thanks for that ever so thin silver lining.

I tried to get him to use 'gr8' and 'l8r' etc but, he's old and and he still believes in proper punctuation and spelling. You should see his emails-they arrive on parchment. Its true, I tell you!

I personally think it's all speculation and isn't true. Just more drama to add when they do actually tour

Im kinda on the fence with this one. I would love to see Jimmy Page, but Led Zeppelin without Plant is like the Stones touring without Jagger. I guess we will see what happens. For those who are wanting this, start saving your money, those tickets are going to be expensive!!!!

07 tour dates without bonham
08 tour dates without plant ?
09 tour dates without page ?
010 tour dates without jones ?

they dont need the ££$$

Plant cant sing like he used to fact
Page cant play like he used to fact
Bonham isnt John bonham fact
JP jones isnt that interested fact

so why ruin the zeppelin legacy ?



As plant once sang himself .....


And its whispered that soon
If we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn
For those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter .

Some of those "facts" are opinions but other than that your post is quite agreeable.

Alter Bridge, who I'm a major fan of and have seen about 7 times, say they would be happy to let Myles take singing duties for LZ and then make album No.3 in late 2009 or early 2010.

Myles is the best singer in rock at the moment, no doubt, but my own opinion is that LZ just shouldn't bother. Queen is a little bit of a joke for real fans and it just screams of making money.

I'll text Myles and see what he says...

:wink:
