Who would be a good Plant replacement?


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned him already (sorry I'm coming to this thread as it's alreday 8 pages long), but how about Chris Robinson from The Black Crowes? I thought their live album with Jimmy Page was the best live vocals that had ever been recorded on Led Zeppelin material...

Yes. A number of times (earlier in this thread and many others)...

There's a number of very popular questions and threads... (like this one)

Thanks for the welcome! I had joined long ago but can't remember why I didn't post - I think I might have had to reinstall Windows and lost my bookmarks...

Chris Cornell, it has to be. Listen to him singing Immigrant Song:

Gotta be him!

*EDIT* Sorry, didnt realise i posted already lol, but his Immigrant song kicks ass!

100% agree, Cornell would be the best guy, seems as though its Myles Kennedy though, who also appears to be a great guy for the job. I like Coverdale's idea for Jimmy to do what Santana does and have many singers on one album. They would still need one singer for a tour though.

the thag is robert doesnt want to do it , he has given his blessing for page to do what he wants and that is to play , im shure the new singer will have his hands full just like robbie blunt did, by the way robert hasnt put out a good album since robie left (im shure ill get a responce on that) but true, if robert can fuck up a zep song with strange then so can the 3js lets be fair, i love them all , but if robert want to play with alison instead of the best rock band in history should the 3js never play again ,come on

if robert wants to end his legacy playing covers in a country band go boy go ,as far as the 3js, dont juge a book before its writen page wont hert zep thats his baby, like the firm, coverdale page , yea it wont be zep but it will be new rockin songs, i trust in page

You're certainly entitled to your opinion but I will respectfully disagree that Robert hasn't put out anything decent since Robbie Blunt was in his band and I will respectfully disagree he's fucked up Zep songs - rearranged them yes to fit them in with the overall vibe the band at the time has, rather than try to find Jimmy clones (which he'd be villified for doing too I'm sure), but ruined them, not in my opinion.

I think the three Js should go out and do something new if they're inspired to work together. I am anxiously waiting for something from Pagey. If they include Zep songs, fantastic. I have no issue with that nor do I have issue with Robert singing Zep songs. I also think Robert should follow whatever musical avenue inspires him - if it's with Alison or whomever. I'd just like to see both of them out there making music for a good long time.

He won't end his legacy in country music. He will finish up in Nashville and be exploring something else, whatever captures his interest. He is nowhere near retirement, and his creative exploration of different genres keeps him young.

Well roger waters isnt half of wat robert is as a frontman.. please don't even associate waters with plant thats a travesty.. and floyd isnt half the band zeppelin is and was !! then again NOONE is

Floyd and Zep are two totally different types of bands - can't really compare them IMO.

Tom Jones.

Hey-Up,

When Bonzo, PLANTed his Seed, Jason was the next best Living Drummer to fill his Fathers "Four Sticks :notworthy:" & Stool, Although Robert :notworthy: would have PLANTed his seed, in Many a dirERECTION, we don't see any of his "Off-Spring" aspire to the Microphone......., The Three of them said, Quote..Dec 1980... With the Sudden Death of our Beloved Friend John Bonham, we could not continue,etc"... But Jason did a Bloody Good Job, but on this some now coming up for what will be 29yrs since Bonzo :notworthy: has passed, No Robert CBE on the Microphone, then that is Im afraid is that, as it will not be Led Zeppelin, it would be three :notworthy: Musicians, & a Singer.

But Long live Led Zeppelin.

All the best,

Hang-man :ph34r:

I said it once and I'll say it again, actually no I won't. This speaks for itself, apsolutely the best zeppelin cover ever....

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=hMcUCPojlGw .....Vote Chris Cornell as new zeppelin frontman!

Hey-Up, 101 & All,

As you know, WE ALL, on here are Very passionate about WHY, we are on here.........

Led Zeppelin :notworthy:

"As you said, then said i wont Say.."Quote you" (Above),,, So I shall say "We are all gathering thoughts of "Who should do what, & who should re-place Who etc, BUT when it comes to Led Zeppelin", but one thing I find on here is that we are all entitled to what eachother thinks & respects, & thats what keeps us all adding our own "Posts" Yes??.

My thought, along with many others is, "The Sporn of Thunder" (Jason) was the ONLY real person, who should Rightly take his Fathers place at the O2, as for the other 3 members, as Proved in there own Solo projects, have NEVER come under the name of "Led Zeppelin", if it be from "Sir" Jimmy with,"Death Wish II, The Firm, or Coverdale etc",

JP Jones doing Albums/Soundtracks like "Scream through to Zooma & producing other bands like The Mission", or Robert "CBE" from doing "Burning Down One Side- through to Strange Sensation, or Alison Krauss etc", & the same now goes, that if Robert decides to give it up, being a Quarter of Led Zeppelin, then so be it, who ever/IF ever he is re-placed, it won't be Led Zeppelin, & it wouldn't if JP Jones gave it a wide berth, & I DREAD to think if Sir Jimmy wrapped it in, would it be Led Zeppelin then,?? I think not. This is because its not just any Rock band,

"THIS IS LED ZEPPELIN" :notworthy: All our Led Zeppelin, & thats one of the reasons we love them .

All the best,

Hang-man :ph34r:
