Alice Cooper is urging Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant to reconsider his decision to walk away from a potential reunion of the legendary band.
The iconic rock group split in 1980 following the death of drummer John Bonham, but reunited for a one-off show in London in 2007 with the percussionist's son Jason filling in for his late father.
The reunion sparked calls for a comeback, but even though Plant's bandmates were all behind the idea, the singer refused to take part.
He recently explained the snub, insisting he is too old to play rock songs and wants to concentrate on his other musical projects, such as his Grammy-winning collaboration with Alison Krauss and his Band of Joy folk band.
But Cooper is adamant Plant should return to his rock and roll roots - and he's urging the singer to change his mind.
He tells the Palm Springs Boxing Examiner, "They are just standing there. What is so hard? Jimmy Page wants to do it. John Paul Jones wants to do it. And they got Bonham's son, who is a killer drummer. All they need is Robert Plant. But what is Robert Plant out there doing? Playing folk music! What is he doing?"
