Coverdale Denies Led Zeppelin Tour Statement

LATEST: WHITESNAKE frontman DAVID COVERDALE has denied making comments to the U.K. press about supporting LED ZEPPELIN on tour, insisting he has no idea where the statement came from.
Led Zeppelin reformed for a concert in London in December (07), fuelling rumours they are gearing up for a world tour - which has prompted bands including The Cult and Stone Temple Pilots to express their interest in landing a support slot.
And when asked if Whitesnake would accept an invitation, Coverdale was quoted in the Daily Mirror insisting, "Am I on board? You bet! (It's) probably worth billions!"
However, Coverdale now insists the quotes did not come from him, because Whitesnake are too busy with their own tour to support anybody else.
He tells website Classic Rock.com, "May I call upon your assistance to help put out this s**tstorm that be (sic) gathering steam about me, supposedly saying I'm awaiting Lord Page's call to invite me to be the supporting act on the forthcoming Led Zeppelin world tour. What f**king world tour, we ask ourselves? We're already out on our Good To Be Bad world tour, thank you very much! I have no idea where this started."
And the former Deep Purple rocker admits a union between Led Zeppelin and Whitesnake would be highly unlikely, due to his past conflicts with Led Zeppelin co-founder Robert Plant.
He explains, "I assure you there is no foundation in this. Why, after all the charming back-and-forths between one Monsieur Plant and oneself through the years, who could imagine such a premise possible? Not me.
"Whitesnake will not be joining Led Zeppelin on a world tour."

I tried to explain this to you people here at contactmusic.com but you seem to not print too many of my comments about LZ -- even thought the fu**ers turn out to be factual and not simple rumors. I'm about ready to put my voice elsewhere, careful.
