In a conversation with ”Radio Forrest” podcast, Whitesnake’s David Coverdale expressed his wish that Led Zeppelin will reunite.
Here’s what Coverdale said:
“That’s not my territory at all. All I can tell you is that I would love for Jimmy Page to have his dream fulfilled to once again tour with Led Zeppelin. And Jonesy [LZ bassist John Paul Jones] — they’re great.
”And Jason [Bonham] is the obvious choice [to play drums for a reunited LZ] — you know, the gene pool. [Late LZ drummer] John [Bonham] was such an integral part — much more important than some people are aware, to have a drummer like that.
”It makes you structure music entirely different so the drums breathe. [They made] beautiful, perfect records.”
“I have no idea why it isn’t happening. I’m just very happy that I have a great friendship and relationship, supportive, a mutual admiration society, with Jimmy. I had the great pleasure of [getting] the rights back to the Coverdale Page record, and now we could do whatever we want with it.
”Because in 2023, it’s the 30th anniversary [of the release of Coverdale Page’s eponymously titled LP]. And we have unreleased songs. We’ll be doing a box set for that, as you can imagine.”
