Wink Zepp man talks TCV

"There were plans in 2008 for the original Led Zeppelin members to hit the road without frontman Robert Plant - under a different name - which were later abandoned.

Now, John Paul Jones said things have worked out for the best: "Jimmy and I rehearsed a bit with Jason Bonham and we couldn’t really agree on singers and that fell by the wayside."

It would have been interesting if Dave would/could have been the singer for this - but I think I can understand why it did not happen for numerous reasons. (least of which, perhaps his name did not come up and already is a frontman?)

Dave the singer with the rest of Led Zeppelin? That would have failed. Hard.

It has to be Robert Plant or nobody singing those songs in my opinion. Hard enough to replace Bonham, but at least they use another Bonham.

At least we now know they were toying with the idea. I agree, without Plant, it isn't Led Zepp. Dave's voice wouldn't be the best match (as much as I love his voice!).

If they were going to use a Foo Fighter as the singer, Taylor's voice would have been far, far better than Dave's for Zeppelin songs. And even that wouldn't have been great.
