Fans Slam Led Zeppelin Comeback

Fans of rock legends LED ZEPPELIN have hit out at the band's plans to tour without frontman ROBERT PLANT
The legendary rockers' bassist John Paul Jones admitted this week (begs 27Oct08) that the group is seeking a replacement for Plant so they can hit the road and also record new material.
But the announcement has prompted outrage from some fans, who have bombarded Internet forums to criticise the move.
One user wrote on NME.com: "Sacrilege, how can they do this?"
And another wrote: "ridiculous...Plant's voice is half of what made Zep who they were. It simply isn't Led Zeppelin without him."

YES, ROBERT PLANT'S VOICE WAS IMPORTANT BUT JIMMY PAGE MADE THE BAND. TO HELL WITH A SINGER AS LONG AS JIMMY PAGE WORKS HIS MAGIC. I DON'T NEED A SINGER. I WISH THEY WOULD USE TERRY REED THOUGH. HE COULD PULL IT OFF.

"ROBERT NEEDS ATTENTION"! Get out of here! Robert is the main reason for the attention to the group from the beginning. I am not referring to how he looked either, his voice and lyrics are one of a kind, and lets face it, he was the front man. If you follow the "Here and NOW" of the band members you would not say that. He is on the road, doing well I might add, with Alison Krauss. Robert has always done well on his own. He is having a good time. Please, no bashing because fans can't have their way. These are individuals with lives of their own, Each with incredible minds and talent. Please afford each of them the respect they deserve. I do agree however, No Robert, No Zep, Plain and simple.

JIMMY PAGE: GUITAR GOD!I am not a Mad Fan, but I'm a Page-addict and if there is anyway at all I can get to hear him play live - I would feel my life is COMPLETE. I'm serious...I mean, Plant is and always will be tremendous, but I need that Zep infusion so bad and if he doesn't want to be in it, then why should all the other bits of Zep be put on the shelf indefinitely?And while we are all walking the earth still, why the heck NOT give us what we have wanted for so many years?Please please come to the US east coast, better yet, I understand Zep once played on Hilton Head, SC...how about an encore? Seriously, just come, the world will follow.
