LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Not everyone's a fan of the notion of a Led Zeppelin tour that didn't include frontman Robert Plant, including the band's former promoter Harvey Goldsmith.
"I certainly don't think they should do a big tour because I can't see the point of it," Harvey Goldsmith said at MusExpo in London earlier this week, "I think some of the band really want to go out and do it and other parts of the band need to understand why they're doing it, and if there's no compelling reason to do it, then they shouldn't do it."
Goldsmith was reacting to the news that two former members of the band, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones were thinking of touring with deceased drummer John Bonham's son, Jason, and a yet-to-be-named replacement for frontman Robert Plant. Rumors have been circulating that such a tour may be in the works since the band's successful reunion gig last December.
Plant has repeatedly expressed his lack of interest in such an endeavor, describing the rumors as "frustrating and ridiculous." Goldsmith appears to be in line with Plant, stating "I doubt it will be called Led Zeppelin…I just think it's a lot of talk … It's wishful thinking." – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
