Not long ago it was reported that Velvet Revolver bass player, Duff McKagan made a statement suggesting that the group would be joining Led Zeppelin on tour as the support act.
This, of course, whipped up the Led Zeppelin tour rumors once again and may have been the cause of false hopes for Led Zeppelin fans who have been waiting to hear news about a tour ever since the legendary rockers performed at London’s O2 show back in December.
Now we are hearing from Velvet Revolver guitarist, Slash, who is saying that McKagan’s statement were taken out of context.
Talking recently with the BBC, Slash said: “As far as Zeppelin doing a tour, that remains to be seen. I saw Robert last night and he’s got his solo thing going on and as far as Velvet Revolver is concerned, we’ve got another record to do and we’re not even thinking about that.”
The last thing we heard that supposedly came from the Led Zeppelin camp was that Robert Plant did not want to tour and turned down as much as $100 Million that was being offered for a tour.
The only thing that seems certain at this point is that Robert Plant has a tour planned with Alison Krauss in support of their album, Raising Sand, and there cannot be any Led Zeppelin tour until Plant has finished up that commitment.
