Led Zeppelin “will tour and record album with new singer” according to Jimmy Page‘s manager Peter Mensch has confirmed today (January 7).

Speaking to BBC6 Music, Mensch has said that the band would carry on, despite founder singer Robert Plant‘s reluctance to perform with the group.

Speaking to the station, Mensch said: “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.
