Many solo artist have worked with female singers, many mixed groups have female vocalists

Robert Plant – Alison Krauss & Patty

Mark Knophfler – Emmylou Harris

Big Brother – Janis Joplin

Jefferson Airplane – Grace Slick

Heart – Ann Wilson et al

What about Jimmy Page working with a female vocalist , I’d go for Bettye Lavette

I certanly wouldn't mind anything "new" at this point, including even an acoustical LP featuring Leona Lewis on vocals. Personally, I like Sharon Little. Saw her in Seattle as an opening act for Plant / Krauss. She was so well received and had such a beautiful voice, receiving a loud standing ovation, though she was so admittently nervous.

There is Stevie Nicks, Joan Jett, Marianne Faithfull and even Jackie DeShannon.

I could see him working with all 4 of them. He has already with the last two.

Ann Wilson would be my top choice .

but this is a case of whether Jimmy himself is up for it. i can't any of the women mentioned not wanting to work with him. in fact i think he could easily get almost anyone (male or female) to work with him if he wanted to.

Of course It could work..

Jimmy Page could work with 100 kazoo players and it would be great.

Whether or not the public would embrace it is another thing..

For Female singers I'd pick..

Tori Amos / Kate Bush - brilliant and eccentric.

Leann Rimes - amazing beautiful voice.

Ann Wilson - of course.

Jimmy Page seemed to enjoy Bonnie Raitt's performance on The Kennedy Center Honors. I don't see why they couldn't collaborate on a project together.

Absolutely fascinating question. Could he ?

We can all list women, and men, he's worked with in the past. We can all draw up a future wish list with either men or women.

I think that, apart from his very early days, his world of music has been with men. And his world of work has been with men. Few of us build our own workplaces and people them just as we choose. Jimmy's in a different place, and in terms of musical collaborators, plus other support staff, guitar techs & the like, it's a male domain.

We all know he needs to find a key musical collaborator, who can hold their own, and yet tune in . Perhaps he will find the man who fits that bill.

I do think it would represent a whole new area of challenge and musical excitement if he could have that kind of working relationship with a woman.

But I just don't think the precedents are there.

Anne Wilson

Ann would be a good one, she got the balls, or else Lynne Jackaman, the lady who fronts Saint Jude

(And Jimmy digs that band)

another interesting singer to work with him would be Loreena MacKennitt.

I guess it depends on what tunes he has and whether he was thinking of a female singer for any of them. Some light and shade could open that up.

I think Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, Jason Bonham and Deborah Bonham could make for a very interesting recording. She sings very soulfully and also has a very powerful voice. Plus, Jason could do backing vocals.
