Today, Jimmy Page's manager, Peter Mensch has confirmed that Led Zeppelin "will tour and record album with new singer."
He went on to tell BBC6 that the band would carry on, despite the founder singer Robert Plant's reluctance to perofrm with the group. "Jimmy Page has been playing guitar professionally since he was 16 years old. Jimmy Page likes being a musician. That's what he does! He doesn't want to be a race car driver or a solicitor,"
"So they [Page, John Paul Jones, Jason Bonham] did the show with Robert Plant; they had a really good time rehearsing, the three of them, before Robert showed up.
"And they decided that if they could find a singer that they thought would fit their bill – whatever their bill was at this stage in their career – that they'd make a record and go on tour.
"John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page enjoy playing with each other, Jason Bonham is a really good drummer so why not? We just need to find a singer," he said.
