Robert Plant is speaking up about his musical plans, and it doesn't sound like it's going to include the rest of Led Zeppelin. In October, bassist John Paul Jones announced he was teaming up with guitarist Jimmy Page and drummer Jason Bonham for a tour. They have been searching for a singer to replace Plant, who had decided not to be involved. Now, months later, Plant maintains that a complete Zeppelin tour probably won't happen, but does say he's still in touch with some of the guys.
According to NME.com, Plant told the BBC he's content to continue working with singer and Raising Sand partner Alison Krauss, explaining, "I'm doing very well with Alison and I'm enjoying that. I still see Jimmy quite a lot and he's very complimentary and supportive of what I'm doing. But we are in different places now and you have to go on to do different things." Meanwhile, Page, Jones and Bonham are reportedly looking for another singer. One of the possible contenders could be Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy.
I think if I had my way I'd prefer another Krauss Kolaboration now and a Zep tour 5 years from now....
