Sir Paul McCartney has expressed his disappointment at Led Zeppelin's decision to reunite without frontman Robert Plant.
The Kashmir hitmakers announced last month (Oct08) that they plan to hit the road in 2009 without Plant, who has opted out of the reunion shows.
The remaining stars, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and the late John Bonham's son, Jason, are now auditioning singers to take over vocals.
But fans of the rockers don't want to see the group with another frontman - and former Beatle MCCartney concedes it won't be the same without Plant.
He says, "What's happened to Planty? He was great at their gig. It's such a pity."
