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.
