#4. Declined offer II
As was mentioned earlier in this piece, Jimmy Page was not initially sold on Robert Plant joining Led Zeppelin. One reason for that may have been that Page possibly had somebody else in mind. As was explained in a piece published on the Wax Poetics website, Terry Reid and not Plant was first presented with an opportunity to link up with Led Zeppelin. Reid not only declined, he was responsible for recommending Plant to Page. Reid’s career never reached the heights reached by Zeppelin or the Rolling Stones, two bands he had relationships with over the years. He nevertheless has lived a fascinating existence.
