It is easy for us to say that when a member of a band dies that the band 
should replace them. In Led Zeppelins case and in Queens for that matter, 
the remaining band members couldn't continue.  The member that had died was 
like a brother to them, and playing live and recording new material wouldnt 
have felt the same.  Brian May (Queens Guitarist) said after playing at 
Freddie Mercurys tribute gig that they were playing the music, playing the 
back catalogue, but to him it wasnt Queen.  It comes down to how the 
remaining members feel about continuing.
But I must say it is totally different when a band member wants to leave, 
like in Peter Giffords case.  The Oils were making an impact in America, 
doing well in Australia and felt they still had something to say. Bones has 
brought something extra to the band and we love him as much as any other 
member of the Oils.
