While confirmation on further Led Zeppelin appearances is still pending, words are circulating that Grohl will play drum in their tour.
While rumors on Led Zeppelin's extended reunion is running up and down since their one-off performance at London's O2 last month, it only comes close enough when an insider revealed that Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters will sit in as the band's touring drummer.
The source told Daily Star, "He was in the running to take over from John Bonham a few years ago and he's still gagging to get on stage with the Zep. While he loves playing with Foo Fighters, Dave would drop anything to be part of Zep's shows."
Grohl was the former drummer of Nirvana who stepped up as the frontman of Foo Fighters in 1995 post Kurt Cobain's death. Should the rumor be true, then he will replace the position of Jason Bonham, son of Zep's original drummer John Bonham who died of asphyxiation in 1980.
A new hint on Zep's other show erupted earlier this week when another source told Daily Mirror on their involvement at 2008 Bonaroo Festival. "They are going to play the Bonnaroo festival, which runs from June 12 to 15," the source quoted as saying. "This news will drive their fans absolutely wild. They have been bombarding their website to get back together for good but only lead singer Robert Plant wasn't keen to commit."
The source went on saying on the possibility of a longer plan, namely a tour. "Now he's had a change of heart and if it all goes well they are also talking about touring."
