Knowing that Robert Plant has turned down their idea to map a roadshow for the band, other Led Zeppelin's members will reportedly ask Alter Bridge's singer to join them.

Despite Robert Plant's refusal, Led Zeppelin will still continue with their plan to hit the road. Twisted Sister's frontman Dee Snider tells MuchMoreMusic that the rockers will be touring with Alter Bridge's singer Myles R. Kennedy.

"They're saying [to Robert], 'We're all rehearsed, we're ready to go, here's a gazillion dollars on the table," Snider says. "If you don't do it, we're going out with this kid. And he can sing the shit out of Zeppelin.' And they're gonna, like, hope that Robert, at the last minute, will go, 'OK,' and step in, before having the lead singer of Alter Bridge out with John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, and Jason Bonham." There hasn't any statement from both Zeppelin and Kennedy's camps referring to the rumor.

Previously, Robert revealed that he had "no intention whatsoever of touring with anyone for at least the next two years." Robert also admitted that he "will not be recording with LED ZEPPELIN." Robert was reportedly reluctant to be back with the band again after they faced huge amounts of paperwork from the record industry bureaucracy during their one-off gig at London's O2 arena.

Why does aceshowbiz use Intellitext for ads with NO RELEVANCE to the link they are associated with? Why hijack the users' browsers? Isn't that like hijacking a plane? Will my browswer crash into the World Trade Center?

I certainly hope this IS true, or if not kennedy, someone else who can carry on Led Zeppelins music. After seeing them at the 02 concert it would be a TERRIBLE waste for music if they dont carry on, with or without plant

Robert Plant ought to think of his fans and not of himself.
