Heart star Ann Wilson has offered guitar great Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones a little girl power as they mull over a Led Zeppelin comeback – she wants to front the group.
Robert Plant has made it clear he isn’t interested in returning to the band for a reunion tour and Page has abandoned plans to hit the road with a new singer, but Wilson is hoping he will change his mind.
In a recent interview with the singer, who performed Led Zep’s “Stairway to Heaven” at the Kennedy Center Honors in 2012, revealed she’d relish the challenge of stepping in for Plant.
She says, “(That was) one of the most unforgettable nights of my life… When we were done, we walked backstage and there was a feeling of awe. We were like, ‘What just happened?’
“We weren’t nervous when we were doing it, but afterwards our nervous system came back to life and it all kicked in.
“Hypothetically, if they (Page and Jones) ever needed a lead singer and Heart was not active at the moment, then, sure, I would (do it). I would go and play with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones any day of the week.”
