New Led Zeppelin Riff Given Away

06/07/2011
.
(Rock News Desk) Black Country Communion frontman Glenn Hughes says he demanded Jason Bonham give him a riff that was to be used in the abandoned Led Zeppelin reunion and the drummer agreed on condition that Hughes turned it into a song which would make him cry.

Bonham last month told how he'd begun working with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones on a recording project in 2008 after the band's one-off show the previous year. But they failed to find a satisfactory replacement for Robert Plant, who refused to be involved, and their plans were shelved.

Now Hughes explains what happened to the embryonic song: he insisted Bonham hand it over to him for use on the new BCC album and it became a track called "Save Me." "Jason played me the demo from when he was working with Jimmy and John and the various singers who might have been part of something," The singer and bassist tells Music Radar. "He played me this riff and I said, 'Give it to me.' He said, 'Give it to you?' and I said very emphatically: 'Yes, give it to me.' more on this story
