    I hear that the other two Zepps are going to tour without Plant. I feel this has to be the worst idea ever in the history of worst ideas in music, other than Zep reforming in first place!

    Any other Zep fans agree/disagree?

    Depends. Are they touring as "Led Zeppelin"? If so, that's just wrong. On the other hand, they're musicians. You can't fault them for doing what they love to do.

    Plant and Page have toured together, albeit not as Led Zepplin. My guess is that something similar would be the case if they tour without Plant.

    The news is that they are touring as Led Zep but without Plant as he is busy doing other things.

    Page with JPJ +2 session dudes hardly constitutes a reformation of the greatest rock quartet in history!

    With respect to Page and Jones...

    On the other hand, they will be more Led Zep than Guns n' Roses were Guns n' Roses when they "reformed"...

    I hope it isn't as bad as that "Queen and Paul Rodgers" malarkey.

    It's kinda like Pink Floyd without waters, and now without Wright. Or Queen without Freddy. It's not great, but it's better than nothin'. And it's a WHOLE lot better than anything that's been released in the past 20-odd years (rap, grunge, hip-hop, speed metal, or any other of that anti-music)

    Agree with that, I try hard to like current stuff but it's mostly so average - guess I'm old,

    I just wish they wouldn't call it "Led Zeppelin", it's dishonest somehow. I saw Page & Plant twice in the 90's as "Page & Plant". Unledded and as a straight 4 piece covering Zep stuff. They were great but not presenting them selves as something they no longer are.

    I won't be buying a ticket - If I want to see Zep live I'll put the DVD of Earls Court '75 on the plasma!!

    I think that the worst idea ever had to be when they recorded some nut rapping for the first time..

    Zep should not tour at all. A legendary band stops being legendary then.

    I hate comments like this, Its patently untrue. Now don't get me wrong I'm in general agreement about Zep and reforming and all. But comments along the lines that no music has made in the last 20 years that comes close to Zeppelin are ridiculous. And generally come from the fact that the person has stopped trying to find good music and stuck with what they know....

    There's plenty that is comparable within any terms you care to set. Particularly if not constrained to a similar musical style and/or genre as Zeppelin....

    Sorry to hear you "hate" what I say. And this "person has NOT stopped trying to find good music." I tried. It just ain't there. Not that everything put out there these days is rubbish--but NOTHING is put out there these days is worth MY $$$.

    Also, there's nothing wrong with "being constrained" to a musical style/genre when that style/genre happens to be The Masters.
