I used the searchbar and nothing came up so who do you think should sing for one of the most influental bands in rock music since Robert Plant obviously doesn't want to. In the poll I've put some people who they were considering and people who just sound freakishly like Robert Plant. I will put the poll up in a minute.

I'd love to see Led Zep live and by that I mean Rovert Plant with them not some other guy, I don't care how good his replacement would be.

David Coverdale if they want to make it look like Robert Plant is still in the band, but Billy Squire for actual talent. Regardless of who they choose, I would not go to this new Led Zeppelin's concert.
#5
i would like coverdale cause he's awesome but he wont because i think he's still involved with whitesnake and wouldn't leave them

Led Zeppelin should stay broken up. It is:

A) Not the same without Robert Plant.
B) It would be just a band to get money, just like the Axl Rose Project.
C) They shouldn't make another album, it will never be as good as the other albums.


#8
Robert Plant.

/thread
There hath he lain for ages and will lie,
Battening on huge seaworms in his sleep;
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.

Especially C. If they made a new album it would never live up to the classics.

You could of said the same about Metallica, but Death Magnetic was good.

I guess your right for them Death Magnetic was a huge step in the right direction for Metallica. I just don't want a Chinese Democracy to happen to Led Zeppelin. By Chinese Democracy I don't mean an album that takes a long time to come out I mean one that is ridiculously hyped and then fails to live up to expectations.

Just face it, without Robert Plant, Zeppelin sucks.
The only songs they'd be able to play right are Moby Dick and Black Mountain Side.

Still, would you choose it over one of their classics? Death Magnetic was good and a huge improvement from st. anger but it can't be compared to their first 4 albums.

Led Zep should stay broken up, because the chances of a new album being better than the old stuff are slim.

I agree, Jimmy Page is even more overrated than Slash, and that means he's very, very, very, very overrated.

im going to have to disagree with you, he may be slightly overrated but at least Page can play. Slash can't write anything half as decent as Page. Page's music is well thought out and some of the best guitar I have ever heard. Slash.....not so much.

He stole music...

and look at this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KuAKgbhfQfQ

I thought this was one of those videos where people put fake audio, but it's him..

same for all his other solos, he only knows one scale and barely has any real talent..

i have to admit that solo sucked balls. but every guitarist has a bad day and it kind of looks like he was high on something but who knows.

Jimmy Page is amazing at rhythm, lead and can write some amazing acoustic parts as well. Slash writes a few good solos here and there. I don't really hear people praise him as much as slash anyways.

Must be my "bad taste", but wanking over 4 notes while having a singer act retarded and moaning like a bitch while doing these gay moves is cool...?

how about after Plant is singing, you call that "wanking over 4 notes"? I'd like to see you do better.

EDIT: watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93ubRaUm2J0
watch the whole damn thing and tell me Page is not a great guitarist.

If I was as old as him and practiced for as long as him I could have pwned him....

At least I can play faster and cleaner than him....

I closed it as soon as he started playing the intro to starway, what's so special about him?
There are other blues musicians who can kick his ass at soloing..

I think they should stay broken up and I say that with the utmost respect for those guys. Sometimes getting a new singer for a band like them just doesn't work.
Her friends are gazing on her,
And on her gaudy bier,
And weep!-oh! to dishonor
Dead beauty with a tear!
They loved her for her wealth-
And they hated her for her pride-
But she grew in feeble health,
And they love her-that she died.
