Now Led Zeppelin AREN’T Going To Replace Plant
Yesterday, Jimmy Page’s manager Peter Mensch told 6Music that Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham would be searching for a singer to replace Robert Plant. Today, Mensch has emphatically stated that Led Zeppelin is over. Will it ever end…After yesterday’s statement that Led Zep will be carrying on, Musicradar have published an interview in which Mensch says: “Led Zeppelin are over! If you didn’t see them in 2007, you missed them. It’s done. I can’t be any clearer than that.”
“They tried out a few singers, but no one worked out,” Mensch continues. “That was it. The whole thing is completely over now. There are absolutely no plans for them to continue. Zero. Frankly, I wish everybody would stop talking about it.”
When pushed on what Page would be working on in 2009, Mensh responded “Fuck if I know. I’m waiting to hear.”
Meanwhile, Robert Plant has completely stepped away from the idea of a Zeppelin reunion and is set to hit the studio with Alison Krauss later on this month to begin work on the follow-up to ‘Raising Sand’, while it’s also been announced that Plant will recieve a CBE for his services to music.
