Led Zep audition for new singer - Is Myles Kennedy the man for the job?

Post by jackie 46 on Sat Sep 20, 2008 12:14 pm







Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant is to be given an ultimatum by his bandmates – join us on tour or we’ll replace you.

Zep guitarist Jimmy Page, bassist John Paul Jones and drummer Jason Bonham have been busy recently rehearsing in West London’s Ritz Studio and using stand-in vocalists.

And one American singer has been so impressive the other band members are confident they could hit the road next year without their iconic frontman.

Brummie-born belter Plant has refused to take part in any practice sessions as he is currently committed to his side project with country singer Alison Krauss.

A source said: “Jimmy, Jason and John are determined a tour will go ahead next year.

“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.”

While fans would be disappointed if Plant was not involved, the shows would still fill arenas worldwide.
The band’s followers are among the most dedicated in rock and would jump at the chance to witness Page, Jones and original drummer John Bonham’s son Jason tearing through mighty rock classics such as Kashmir and Whole Lotta Love.

I understand Plant’s reluctance to revisit the past but the group’s one-off reunion show at London’s O2 in December was an incredible success.

The only shame was that more fans couldn’t witness it.

In that night’s post-gig euphoria Plant came round to his pals’ plan for more shows. But has since cooled on the idea.

If he does not take part it remains unclear whether the group will be allowed to use the name Led Zeppelin.

A version of classic American rockers The Doors, featuring guitarist Robby Krieger and keyboard player Ray Manzarek, had to change their name in 2005 after the estate of late lead singer JIM MORRISON objected to them being called The Doors OF the 21st century.

Just hope the Led Zeppelin rock titans don’t call their group Tin Zeppelin...

I think Plant might just change his mind.

NOBODY can replace Robert Plant!!!!

(Sorry, but I'm a big Zep fan, and a big fan of his solo stuff too - I walked down the aisle to a Robert Plant track, and another of his tracks was the first dance at our wedding).

I've seen him live, and his voice is still perfect. I would absolutely love it if they toured, but not without Planty as the singer.

Led Zeppelin to regroup with singer Myles Kennedy?

No, we've never heard of him either, but the man rumoured to replace Robert Plant apparently has a four-octave vocal range - which could be handy when singing Stairway to Heaven.

Never heard of him, thought Plant was re-joining?
