Jimmy Page Rep: “No Robert Plant, No ‘Led Zeppelin’ “

Just in case you were getting worried about the possibility of the guy from Alter Bridge fronting something called Led Zeppelin next year, a rep for Zep guitarist Jimmy Page has told Rolling Stone that if Robert Plant doesn’t hit the road with the band next year, a name change will be in order: “Whatever this is, it is not Led Zeppelin… Not without the involvement of Robert Plant.” Whether or not “Page/Jones/Bonham/Kennedy”–or anything with a similarly unwieldy name–will get butts into seats is, of course, another story, what with people wanting to hang on to their pennies these days. Especially if they have to budget for a Creed reunion tour, too… [RS]
