Tyler 'Takes Over From Plant'

LED ZEPPELIN are reportedly lining up a megastar replacement for singer ROBERT PLANT - they have been jamming with AEROSMITH frontman STEVEN TYLER.
Fans of the legendary rock band have speculated there will be a world tour since they reunited for a one-off show last December (07).
Singer Plant has frequently denied the band is to hit the road for a string of gigs, but rumours the other three members - Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and Jason Bonham - have been rehearsing together have sent gossips into a spin.
Now the comeback looks to be a step closer to reality - with reports suggesting Tyler has taken over vocal duties during practice sessions in London.
A source tells Britain's The Mail on Sunday newspaper, "Steve was jamming with Zep. They had a great time but Steve kept fluffing (messing up) his lines. He got quite flustered about it."

No Plant no Zep, 4 fantastic musicians but not Led Zeppelin. Jason Bonham is a gift and Zep is in his blood but Without Robert, I just can't call it Zeppelin

I'd still go to show without Plant but agree they shouldn't be called Zeppelin.

Forget Plant - would rather see Zep with someone who can hit the highs. Remember Page with the Black Crows? Phenomenal!!! Leave the Diva behind, go ahead and call yourselves Led Zeppelin and give the fans what we've been longing for.

f**k plant, he's an asshole and just knows that he can't sing rock anymore. Why dosen't he just say that.he's now a pansy country singer and as far as i am concered Zeppelin will go on without him and whoever does sing will hit the high notes and as long as Jones is part of the band it is the real zeppelin.

In early 80's Chris Squire, Alan White of Yes recorded with Jimmy Page for a group designed to be called XYZ...Ex-Yes-Zeppelin..well now Yes goes on tour with a tribute band vocalist since Jon Anderson of Yes is ill...why dont Jon Anderson team up and do vocals as a revenge to the betrayal of his band mates and join Zeppelin?
