Led Zeppelin To Record With New Singer

Jimmy Pages manager reveals more about the band reforming

Led Zeppelin will tour and record without Robert Plant- according to guitarist Jimmy Pages manager.

Its an open secret that John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Jason Bonham have been rehearsing and writing together.

Now manager Peter Mensch has revealed more telling BBC 6Music: "So they [Page, Jones, Bonham] did the show with Robert Plant; they had a really good time rehearsing, the three of them, before Robert showed up. And they decided that if they could find a singer that they thought would fit their bill" whatever their bill was at this stage in their career  that they'd make a record and go on tour."

The trio are currently looking for a frontman for the reformed rockers according to Mensch.

He said: "John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page enjoy playing with each other, Jason Bonham is a really good drummer so why not? We just need to find a singer."

The full line up- with drummer Jason Bonham replacing his dad John- played a one off show at the O2 Arena in late 2007.

Robert Plant has since said he is devoting his attentions to his albums with Alison Krauss rather than a reunited Led Zep. It's currently unknown who will replace Plant but reports have suggested Steven Tyler of Aerosmith or Chris Cornell of Soundgarden could be in the frame.
