According to the Robert Plant Newswire, former Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant confirmed to the Birmingham Evening Mail on November 6 that he would not be joining guitarist Jimmy Page, bassist John Paul Jones and drummer Jason Bonham on the road for the proposed Zeppelin reunion tour. He said it was partly because he'd be busy working on the follow-up to his awardwinning Raising Sand LP.

"In January, I'm starting to record a new album with Alison Krauss and T-Bone Burnett," he revealed, before adding, "but I understand that everyone's got to eat," implying that the Plant-less Led Zep has his blessing.

He also imparted one piece of significant information: "They won't be calling it Led Zeppelin!"

Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham recently confirmed that they are contemplating going on the road without Robert Plant, and have jammed witih several potential replacements. Sources have indicated that the leading candidate for the job is Myles Kennedy of the band Alter Bridge.

When asked about the collaboration, an unnamed spokesperson for Page's management company, QPrime, told, "Whatever this is, it is not Led Zeppelin. Not without the involvement of Robert Plant."
