NEWS: Drummer Says Led Zeppelin Nearly Toured Without Robert Plant (from

According to Jason Bonham, the son of Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham who has taken over his father's role in the Led Zeppelin reunions, the band was very close to touring in 2008 without frontman Robert Plant.

Bonham said, "It got as close as you could get. It got real close. You know, we did a year of writing and putting stuff together."

Zeppelin reunited for a one-off show in London in December of 2007. A reunion tour was discussed, but Plant wanted to focus on his solo work with Alison Krauss.

Bonham said the band moved forward with another singer, but didn't name names. He did confirm that it was not Alter Bridge's Myles Kennedy.

The whole thing was shut down, though, after a disagreement between Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones.
