Confirmed, Led Zeppelin to Tour Without Robert Plant
Following Robert Plant's confirmation saying that he has "no intention whatsoever of touring with anyone for at least the next two years," Led Zeppelin's bassist, John Paul Jones, tells BBC Radio that the band are in the process of looking for a new singer to replace Plant. "We are trying out a couple of singers," he says. "We want to do it. It's sounding great and we want to get on and get out there."
Jones emphasizes that he, Jimmy Page, and Jason Bonham don't want a replica of Plant stating, "It's got to be right. There's no point in just finding another Robert. You could get that out of a tribute band, but we don't want to be our own tribute band." Jones also reveals that "there would be a record and a tour. But everyone has to be on board."
Previously, several musicians have been rumored to stand in for Plant's position, including Alter Bridge's singer Myles R. Kennedy and Aerosmith's Steven Tyler. However, when asked who will be signed by them, Jones simply says, "As soon as we know who it is, we'll let you know who it is."
