In your daily “Holy Shit! Led Zeppelin might go on tour, but might not” news: despite recent reports that the band is considering going on tour sans Robert Plant (with the dude from Alter Bridge), British gossip newsletter Popbitch has Jimmy Page saying the reunion couldn’t happen without Plant:
"Page hasn't quite been singing from the same songsheet. He got talking to a fan last week and said that he'd never tour without Robert Plant."
So, Page may or may not have told a fan he wouldn’t tour without Plant. But he said that when he took David Coverdale under his flamed shirt sleeve, so all bets are off. I think ultimately the band will return to touring (with or without Plant) because Jimmy Page has never been convinced that the band was anyone’s but his own. But I shudder to think the guy from Alter Bridge would be considered. Was this guy not available? [Popbitch via Idolator]
