Slash Claims Myles Kennedy Almost Joined Led Zeppelin

In a new Bayrock Drive interview, Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash claimed that Led Zeppelin were planning a tour with Myles Kennedy as singer. It was first revealed by Slash in a 2014 interview with Howard Stern. Slash said the following:

Slash: To try and make a long story short, I did a solo record that did a bunch of featured lead singers on it back in 2010. When I was making that record, I was almost finished making that record and I had a couple of songs left over and I hadn’t figured out who should sing those two songs. I’d been hearing a lot about Myles Kennedy for years, but I never actually heard him sing. At one point we were actually auditioning for Velvet Revolver back in 2004 before Scott Weiland came into it. So when I was making this record I thought “I wonder if Myles Kennedy is interested,” and I wanted to see what he [would] think, because he had just worked with Led Zeppelin for a tour that they were going to do at the time. So I thought, he must be good, right?

Slash: So I called him up and told him I was doing this thing, would you be interested in doing it and I sent him the material to which he put a demo vocal on it, sent it back to me a few days later and I was just blown away. So I flew him into Los Angeles and we met for the first time and we got along really well. We recorded a song called ‘Starlight’ and then I asked him to do the other one and it turned out to be another song called ‘Back From Cali.’

Slash: So after that was over with, I was trying to figure out how to support the record because I obviously couldn’t have all these different singers from the album out on the road so I asked Myles [Kennedy]. I knew Myles had the range to be able to cover all of the material that it was that I was going to be doing, which was stuff from the solo record and stuff from Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver and stuff, right?
