star Myles Kennedy appears to have taken a step closer to fronting Led Zeppelin
on tour after band mate Mark Tremonti confessed he has to be "hush-hush" about the rumors in an online interview.
The singer refused to chat about the possibility of replacing Robert Plant
onstage during the chat, but Tremonti couldn't keep quiet about the big news.
He said, "We all have to be real hush-hush about it. We hear the rumors, we know what everybody's saying, but as far as what's really happening... I don't really know. Nobody does."
But former Creed
star Tremonti insisted the potential Led Zeppelin tour won't interfere with Alter Bridge's 2009 plans - and it will not lead to a reunion of his former band.
He added, "No matter what happens next year, it'll be for the ultimate benefit of Alter Bridge... Who knows what can happen next year? 2009 could be one of the craziest years ever for us. (But) we've really stressed the point that Creed is never gonna happen again, and Alter Bridge is our band, and this is the band that takes 100 per cent of our time."
Plant has made it clear he wants no part of a potential Led Zeppelin reunion tour in 2009, but the fact that guitarist Jimmy Page
, bassist John Paul Jones
and drummer Jason Bonham
have been jamming with other singers since the summer have left fans convinced the supergroup is heading out on the road.
