NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Robert Plant recently put the kibosh (at least for now) on the possibility of a full-bore Led Zep reunion tour, but rumors surrounding the possibility of a tour by at least part of the band refuse to die.
The latest set of such rumors were sparked by Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider. In a recent interview by MuchMoreMusic's Matt Wells, Snider reported that Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonhman had been rehearsing with a selection of vocalists, including Alter Bridge's Myles Kennedy.
"They're saying [to Robert], 'We're all rehearsed, we're ready to go, here's a gazillion dollars on the table. If you don't do it, we're going out with this kid. And he can sing the shit out of Zeppelin.' And they're gonna, like, hope that Robert, at the last minute, will go, 'OK,' and step in, before having the lead singer of Alter Bridge out with John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Jason Bonham." Snider told Wells during the interview.
Snider reportedly received this bit of intelligence from his manager, who he claims works with Robert Plant as well. While Robert Plant hasn't publicly commented on this latest rumor, he's noted that he has no intention of participating in a Led Zep tour.
"It's both frustrating and ridiculous for this story to continue to rear its head when all the musicians that surround the story are keen to get on with their individual projects and move forward. I wish Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham nothing but success with any future projects." Plant recently said of similar rumors. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
