Rocker Sammy Hagar's manager has dismissed reports linking the ex- star to the vacant frontman slot in . Guitarist Joe Perry and his bandmates have been on the hunt for a new singer since announced he was taking a hiatus from the band in 2009, and Hagar has emerged as the latest frontrunner - but the "Why Can't This Be Love" singer's manager insists there's no truth to the rumors.

John Carter quips, "His Led Zep[pelin] gig conflicts with the Aerosmith job... Seriously, Sam is very happy to be going into the studio with (band) to start the second album in April."
