Amstel Posted February 16, 2013 Share Posted February 16, 2013 I've always said that if Jones, Page and Plant decided to write new material, and possibly tour, then the best drummer for the job would be David Grohl. Grohl's work in Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Queens Of The Stone Age and Them Crooked Vultures is excellent. If any drummer has ever been close to what Bonham did, it's Grohl. I was never fond of Jason's playing ability, but he has gotten better since he decided on sobriety. I know Robert Plant made the statement "Jason is better than 80% of rock drummers today" during Led Zeppelin's Earl's Court stint in 75', but IMO, he is saying that because they're pretty much family. However, Jason did play extremely well at the O2. What he did in The Song Remains The Same and Kashmir was powerful stuff. I never want to see Jones, Page and Plant tour as Led Zeppelin. Led Zeppelin are/were four certain individuals, and sadly one of those members passed. If they were to do new material and give a tour a go, I understand it would be Jason. I'd rather see David Grohl! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
