Legendary Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant may have recently refuted rumors that he’s reuniting with the band for a world tour — but according to, er, Twisted Sister screamer Dee Snider, that doesn’t mean that the Zep’s efforts are kaput.
Apparently, remaining members Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and Jason Bonham — son of deceased original drummer John Bonham — are threatening to recruit Myles Kennedy, lead singer of God-rock Creed offshoot, Alter Bridge, as a bargaining chip to convince Plant to change his mind.
Said former cross-dresser and one-time fictional Internet predator Snyder to MuchMoreMusic: “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…” [via Idolator]
We’re not entirely sure how Dee Snider is privileged to such groundbreaking news, which makes us a little suspicious. (We weren’t able to reach Zep’s management by press time.) But still, a Led Zeppelin reunion without Robert Plant?Do fans really to want to listen to this guy sing “Black Dog”?We think we know what Led Zep fans’ reaction is going to be to this rumor.
