According to reports Jimmy Page and co. have been rehearsing with a new singer
Led Zeppelin have replaced their frontman Robert Plant with American singer Myles Kennedy, according to reports.
MuchMoreMusic claims that Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham have been rehearsing with Kennedy recently, after Plant issued a statement quashing rumours of a reunion tour and album.
On September 29 Robert Plant issued a statement saying Led Zeppelin would not record or tour with him in the line-up.
The claim came after Twisted Sister‘s Dee Snider supposedly leaked details of the rehearsal sessions.
Snider described Page, Jones and Bonham as saying to Robert Plant: “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 [Kennedy]. And he can sing the shit out of Zeppelin And they’re gonna hope that Robert, at the last minute, will go, ‘OK’, and step in.”
Myles Kennedy is a singer/songwriter/guitarist from Washington who currently fronts rock band Alter Bridge.
