Slash’s partner in crime Myles Kennedy hopes that his 2008 rehearsals with the members of Led Zeppelin don’t surface online. During a recent interview with Eddie Trunk, the Alter Bridge and Conspirators vocalist made these statements.
Following Led Zeppelin’s 2007 one off reunion show, rumours swirled that a full blown tour was to follow, but singer Robert Plant quashed any future plans. This led the legendary rockers to invite Myles Kennedy and Aerosmith vocalist to audition in Plant’s place. Whether it was going to be called Led Zeppelin or another project seems to be clarified by Kennedy below.
Kennedy told Eddie Trunk that no video was taken, but say he’s “heard different accounts” about the possibility of audio recordings. “I actually hope [it] didn’t [get recorded],” he told Eddie Trunk, “because I was actually pretty sick. I had come off a tour in Australia, and I remember I got these and I had bronchitis or something, and I remember it took a few days for my voice to come back. So, I hope there is nothing that exists!”
Kennedy described the experience in an earlier interview. “Believe me… those rehearsals I will remember to my dying day,” Kennedy said in 2014. “When we’re talking about this it seems completely ridiculous — there’s no way — but it did happen. 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.”
