White Stripes frontman Jack White has distanced himself from reports which suggested he was keen to replace Robert Plant in Led Zeppelin.

White is one of a number of artists who has been linked to the supposedly vacant position since Plant announced that he had no plans to return to the band.

However, a source close to White told the Daily Star newspaper: “I do not believe you can have a band called Led Zeppelin, singing Zeppelin songs, without Plant.”

Speculation about Led Zeppelin's future has increased after Plant released a statement saying he found the constant speculation around the band's future “frustrating and ridiculous”

In a bid to quash reports that he had agreed to a full reunion tour, Plant insisted that he “will not be touring or recording with Led Zeppelin”.

Last weekend
, new reports suggested Myles Kennedy, who currently fronts Alter Bridge, was ready to tour with Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham in Plant's place.

Calls for a Led Zeppelin reunion tour have been consistent since the bands reunion show at the O2 Arena last December, which attracted 1 million applicants for just 9,000 pairs of tickets.
