Tyler: 'Led Zep Didn't Need A Singer Like Me'
STEVEN TYLER has confirmed he tried out as ROBERT PLANT's replacement in LED ZEPPELIN - and he'll never forget the experience.
Aerosmith bandmate Joe Perry recently revealed Tyler secretly auditioned for the supergroup - but rehearsals were "shambolic" because the singer wasn't familiar with Led Zep's catalogue and was under the impression the classic rockers were recording new material.
But Tyler insists the rehearsals were a great experience: "The kid in me was dying. I got to sing every song from Black Dog up and down and I'll never forget it as long as I live."
He tells VH1, "I don't think a band like theirs needs a singer like me. They already had the best; they were the best."
