Led Zeppelin to tour without Robert Plant?

Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones participated in a Q&A over the weekend at the Manson’s Guitar Show in Devon, England, in which he said he expects a reunited Led Zeppelin to tour…without singer Robert Plant.

Plant has been touring with Alison Krauss and pouring cold water on imminent Zep reunion prospects, but Jones said that he, guitarist Jimmy Page and drummer Jason Bonham (son of the late original drummer John Bonham) are moving forward nonetheless.

The Web site eGigs quotes Jones as saying:

As you probably know, Jimmy, Jason and I are actually rehearsing and we've had the odd singer come in and have a bash….We really hope that something is going to happen soon because we really want to do it and we're having a lot of fun, actually, just rehearsing….We really wanna do something, and Robert doesn't want to do this, at least for the moment.

Ah, such intrigue…and many questions:

1. Should Led Zeppelin hire a tribute-band singer as Yes did to replace an ailing Jon Anderson?

2. Should Led Zeppelin hire Jon Anderson?

3. Is Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin without Robert Plant?

4. Would you see this band regardless of the name and singer?

5. Do you think Jones and Page are just playing a game of chicken to pressure Plant to change his mind?
