New Zeppelin Singer?

Post by Discopants on Sat Oct 25, 2008 4:27 pm

The line-up of reformed rock legends LED ZEPPELIN could be in doubt - they are reportedly looking to replace singer ROBERT PLANT.
The rockers reunited for an historic gig last year (Dec07) - and rumours of a full world tour have dogged the band ever since.
Frontman Plant attempted to end the speculation by hitting the road with country star Alison Krauss.
But the rest of the group have reportedly been rehearsing with stand-in singers - and are now said to be considering replacing Plant altogether.
A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "They've been rehearsing frequently in London and the band is really gelling. There's an American guy who has been standing in for Robert regularly and doing a great job.
"Obviously they want the original frontman to join them on the road but he still won't commit. They will be finalising plans for shows over the next couple of months and will tell Robert that if he doesn't want to be involved they will go ahead without him."


Wow lol.

I'd be amazed if they actually went ahead and replaced him, it would fail miserably imo. It's one thing replacing your frontman but it's a whole other level when you have to replace him after around 40 years and have become probably the biggest rock band ever.

Well, it says they're gonna ask him if he still wants to be involved, and he's got rocks in his head if he takes this thing with Allison Krauss over Zeppelin. 1) You're the lead singer of Led Zeppelin, it'd be just plain stupid to leave.
and 2) the stuff with Allison Krauss is crap, more for her voice than his, but it's still crap Razz

Disgusting. A spit in the face to the legacy really. I'd rather see them stop then replace what Led really is. I mean, Bonham was a fantastic drummer, but Plant & Page are what really makes Led Zeppelin. Break those two up and there is no Led Zeppelin.
