Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler hinted at performing with members of Led Zeppelin and Guns N’ Roses in the future after past surprise guest performances in a new Instagram post, even tagging Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant, and Jimmy Page. Tyler played with Led Zeppelin during their 1995 reunion at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, which he shared a clip of.
“CHECK OUT MY INSTAGRAM STORY… FOR THE TIME MACHINE ARCHIVE… OF SOME OF MY FAV GUEST JAMS OVER THE YEARS… KEEP YOUR 👁👁 PEELED – YOU NEVER KNOW WHERE I MIGHT DROP IN NEXT !!! @joeperryofficial @acdc @alicecooper @billyjoel @bradpaisley @carrieunderwood @officialduffmckagan @gunsnroses @jeffbeckofficial @jimmyfallon @jimmypage @keithurban @ledzeppelin @martinamcbride @marilynmanson @mattsorum @nunobettencourtofficial @pink @robertplantofficial @shakira @slash @springsteen @theofficialsting @taylorswift.”
According to Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry, Tyler was called in for the aborted 2008 Led Zeppelin reunion attempted by Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham. Myles Kennedy was another rumored singer.
Guardian reported years back:
Though Robert Plant refused to be involved, the remaining band-members spent several months under the illusion that they could replace him. Their talks with singer Myles Kennedy are well documented, but Perry claims Tyler also staggered into the Zeppelin practice room. “It’s something I’ve never talked about before,” Perry told The Pulse of Radio. “It’s a kind of window into how hard it’s been to keep the [Aerosmith] partnership together.”
“Steven disappeared and I called around. Somebody said he was in London trying out for Led Zeppelin.” The rehearsals, Perry said, were “shambolic” – and Tyler didn’t even seem familiar with the Led Zeppelin catalogue. The ill-fated New Led Zep decided to pass. “Page felt really awkward about the audition, but ultimately it was a group decision.”
