Alter Bridge Singer Reveals Details Of His Led Zeppelin Audition

(hennemusic) Alter Bridge and Slash singer Myles Kennedy shared the inside story of his 2008 audition with Led Zeppelin on a recent edition of VH1 Classic's "That Metal Show", and video of the episode is available to stream online.

Kennedy was one of the frontmen to rehearse with Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham in the months following their 2007 reunion at London's 02 Arena (since released as "Celebration Day"), after Robert Plant passed on continuing under the Zeppelin banner to focus on his solo career.

"Believe me… those rehearsals I will remember to my dying day," said Kennedy. "When we're talking about this it seems completely ridiculous - there's no way - but it did happen. We played 'The Rain Song,' which is probably my favorite Led Zeppelin song, 'No Quarter,' 'Kashmir,' it was a lot of fun."

"But it wasn't going to be 'Led Zeppelin,'" he continued. "I don't know if they knew what it was going to be. They just wanted to play, they wanted to jam, they wanted to put a project of some sort together. They weren't sure what it was, but it was never going to be Led Zeppelin with a new singer, I mean, obviously." Watch the video here.
