We've never met one another, record all parts indivudually and one guy then edits the audio and video into a final youtube video. I told our singer he should audition for the Zeppelin tour. We call this "Virtual Zeppelin" and our guys is way good enough to tour with Zep .

Any thoughts?

Amazing, the guy has an incredible voice. I think he works great in a LZ cover band, but I don't think Page & co. are looking for someone who can imitate Plant's look or in this case, his voice.

I could be wrong, but I think they'll go with a singer who's a proven song writer, someone who has awesome vocal range and the ability to create new songs, and I don't think this new person will look or sound anything like Plant. I admit this is what I hope they'll do!

They might consider Ronnie James Dio: an undoubtedly great singer with plenty of range - plus, he's of Jimmy & Jonesy's generation.

I'd be devastated. He'd be pretty close to my last choice. Just completely the wrong style IMHO.

IMO, we don't need a "soundalike clone" of Robert.

What is required is something new and whomever they chose I would back their judgement.

If you look at JP & JPJ's session history they played with plenty of good voices so they know what to look for.

My previous suggestions included:

Donovan (Leitch, not the sausage) :blink:

Stephen Stills

BTW, is Steve Marriott still around?

For the Aussies, how about Jimmy Barnes? :rolleyes:

Jay & The PeeBees

or;

Jay & The Beeps

I know there's another thread on this, but you know the motto:

Marriot is dead. I would say Stephen Stills was too old and too gentle.

Barnes too raucous.

Donovan - cannot get my head around that suggestion at all.

Good thing we all think differently!

Just thinking outside the square, Knebby.

JP & JPJ have some history with him so it's not such a stretch.

How and when did Marriott die?

vanderbilly-

virtual zep has alot of fans on this forum. more than one thread has been derailed when a new song was done and put up on you-tube. i also love your guitar lessons service-fabulous. welcome to the forum and can't wait for your input on all things zep.

your singer smokes. i wouldn't mind him hooking up with page, jones, and bonham. he doesn't have the flouncy hair, just the pipes. he can cover the bases vocally (and then some) and give them a new frontline look that is non-plant.

the rest of you guys really kick ass, and i enjoy your work.

Steve Marriott died on April 20, 1991, in a tough fire in his house...
