According to Dee Snider, yes! Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and Jason Bonham are itching to
rake in oodles of cash play the music of Led Zeppelin all around the world, even though lead singer Robert Plant has decided that he’s all about things like “bluegrass” and “taking two years off” these days. So they’re going to do something drastic–something that will definitely divide fans of the band in two even more than Coverdale/Page did. They’re going to get the guy from Alter Bridge–you know, the band that Creed eventually became once Scott Stapp sweated his way out of that particular spotlight–to take Plant’s place! Let’s hand it over to the Twisted Sister frontman, who was shooting off his mouth on the Canadian music-video station MuchMoreMusic:
are forcedprepare to join our loved ones and reaffirm the positive things that have happened to us in 2007, take comfort in the fact that former Creed and current Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti is as irritated by Scott Stapp as the rest of world, meaning no future Creed product. Also, Stapp’s one of those creepy exes who can’t stop sending “hey, what’s up?” text messages long after the relationship’s over.
Each day at CMJ we’ll be taking an in-depth look at the best (and worst) shows we happened upon. On day one, we gave into the power of Christian grunge and probably contracted some sort of skin disease from the couches at a Brooklyn house party in search of underground thrills.
