Slash backs Robert Plant for his decision not to reform Led Zeppelin, believing that a series of gigs will ruin the magic of the band's reunion.
Former Guns N' Roses rocker Slash has backed Robert Plant's decision not to reform Led Zeppelin after the band's one-off reunion gig in 2007. The legendary band came back together for a concert in London, with Jason Bonham replacing his late dad John on drums.
But Plant refused to resurrect Led Zeppelin for a comeback tour, even though the other members were keen to hit the road again. And Slash is convinced the singer made the right decision, because a series of sell-out global gigs would have ruined the magic of the band's reunion.
He tells Britain's GQ magazine, "When Robert Plant said he didn't want to tour after the comeback show, I thought that was the right thing. It was a special night, so why ruin it?"
