Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy has confirmed that he auditioned to be Robert Plant's replacement in Led Zeppelin, after the vocalist declined to be involved with a potential world tour.

"It was surreal," Kennedy told US radio's The Blairing Out With Eric Blair show. "Alter Bridge will go on, and that's that. It was great. I'll tell that story some day."

Why will he tell this story someday? It's boring, all he did was try out. They probably said no to him because his vocals suck, but they are letting him go on with his delusions of grandeur...

Well, it was probably surreal for him just to meet the other band members. That's probably why he'll tell the story someday, Jake :)

Yeah thats what I'm thinking Inferno lol.

Junge, he has a terrible voice, not suiting Led Zeppelin at all. It reminds me of Nickelback's singer...which is the worst band ever made.

Now, the rest of the band members of Alter Bridge are amazing at what they do. I'm not dissing them in any manner. Mark Tremoni is amazinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng.
