Saying Led Zeppelin can't continue without its lead singer, Jimmy Page reveals that the future of the band depends on Robert Plant.

is insisting the future of depends on his former bandmate - because they can't continue the group without the lead singer. The legendary rockers sparked rumors of a reunion tour after Plant, Page and John Paul Jones reteamed for a benefit concert in London in December, 2007, but the singer has since rejected all offers to hit the road with his old pals.

Plant recently sparked speculation he may reform the band once more for iconic U.K. music festival Glastonbury next summer 2010, after admitting he'd been in talks with organizer Michael Eavis, but he has continually dismissed reports they will regroup.

Page is planning to work on new music in 2010, but despite making it clear he'd welcome a Led Zeppelin reunion, he refuses to carry the band's moniker without Plant's involvement. He says, "You'd better ask Robert Plant what the future of Led Zeppelin is. Musicians can always play together but I don't think you can go out with a band called Led Zeppelin if you haven't got the original vocalist."
