Ann Wilson To Tour With Zeppelin Rumour
This is an interesting article. For those who don't know, Ann is the lead singer of the band "Heart" with hits "Crazy On You","Barracuda" and "Magic Man" from the 70's. Before they became big Heart was the top Zep cover band in the Seattle area...........
As founding Led Zeppelin members, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, along with the son of late Zeppelin drummist, John Bonham are rejected for a massive reunion tour by former lead vocalist Robert Plant, rumours are swirling that Heart lead vocalist, Anne Wilson is being seriously considered for the spot. A source close to the "band" informs that Page and Jones have been ready to tour for some time and feel time itself will soon close the door on the opportunity, as the musicians are now into their mid-sixties.
"Besides, poor Robert simply can't hit the notes anymore", he adds, "Zeppelin's lyrics are very androgenous, Anne is in good shape, is a huge fan and most importantly, she can do the job justice - She may be the only alternative that will sell out the stadiums that would make this a bllion dollar tour". Plant has recently received Grammy awards as a result of his collaboration with folk artist Alison Krauss. Their multi-platinum release "Raising Sand" has seen a resurgence on the charts following the Grammy wins. Plant has committed to a follow-up release with Krauss later in 2009, with a subsequent tour.
No official word from Anne Wilson or Led Zeppelin regarding the rumour.
