Doesn't David Coverdale have this locked anyway?
I thought Jimmy Page has had him in the freezer for 20 years
For just such an occasion.

the deal is (having followed Plants solo career closely and seen him live on every tour since Zeppelin) Robert Plant has moved on a long time ago
and Jimmy Page never really did.
the first half of Plants career he wouldn't even do the Zeppelin songs.
then for a while he was doing them
and now he's not again.

But Like Yessongs I cant picture anybody else singing those songs

LOL . . . believe it or not, Nolan manages to think this stuff up without any assistance from artificial substances . . . ;)

Actually, when I saw the Minnesota Symphony do the Led Zep tribute back in March, they had a guy named Randy Jackson singing the songs that really did them justice . . . LZ should consider HIM . . .

Or not . . .

I can understand wanting to hear the music live regardless of whether it's the original musicians doing it, but if Plant doesn't want to, and the others do, then they should go their own way with some new stuff, new vocalist, but don't pretend it's LZ . . . call it something a bit different.

I think the Cars pulled it off pretty successfully when they teamed up with Todd Rundgren . . . called it the NEW Cars, and they did both old Cars stuff, and Rundgren stuff in concert.

ANN WILSON

unlike what happened to Jon...

Benoit David might do fine aping Jon Anderson, but he doesn't have the balls for Zeppelin vox or presence.

I think bands should start being bands again, althougth the idea of Ann Wilson with Zeppelin sounds excellent, that I would go to see.
