Led Zeppelin Nearly Reformed Without Robert Plant, Jason Bonham Reveals

July 13, 2010
Led Zeppelin Nearly Reformed Without Robert Plant, Jason Bonham RevealsLed Zeppelin drummer Jason Bonham has revealed that the band almost reformed without singer Robert Plant.

Bonham, who is the son of the band's original drummer John, said he worked with guitarist Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones for a year on new material.

But he suggested that a disagreement between the pair had halted the project.

"It got as close as you could get,” he told MusicRadar. “It got real close. You know, we did a year of writing and putting stuff together.

“I loved working with Jimmy and John Paul. It was so much fun.”

Alluding to the reason they stopped, the drummer added: "I think…basically, they agreed to disagree. After a while, it was just time to move on."

Bonham also confirmed that they had road-tested a different singer, but denied reports that it was Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge.

“There was somebody else,” he said. “Somebody else was involved - and that's all I'll say to that.

Calls for another Led Zeppelin reunion have been constant since the band's one-off appearance at London's O2 Arena in 2007.
