(Newser) – Robert Plant denies he ever planned to join a Led Zeppelin reunion tour, saying "it's been both frustrating and ridiculous" to hear such rumors, Billboard reports. Plant says he won't be touring with anyone for at least two years, but wishes guitarist Jimmy Page, bassist John Paul Jones, and late drummer John Bonham's son Jason "nothing but success” with a reunion tour.

His bandmates are said to be rehearsing together and contemplating vocalists to replace Plant on tour. Plant —who is "keen to get on" with individual projects —reaped acclaim for the album he released last year with Alison Krauss, Raising Sand. Zep fans can seek some solace in a 10-disc boxed set of the band’s entire works, which will be out November 4.
