LED ZEPPELIN: If It’s Quiet, Count Plant In
He says he’s not totally against working with Jimmy Page, but only on acoustic material.
Robert Plant says he’s not opposed to playing with Jimmy Page again, so long as it’s quiet.
He says, “A couple of years ago I said to Jimmy, ‘If you’ve got anything acoustic, let me know. I’ll give it a whirl.’ It was hands across the water. He just walked away. But we couldn’t do anything proper. The weight of expectation is too great… I feel for the guy. He knows he’s got the headlines if he wants them. But I don’t know what he’s trying to do. So I feel slightly disappointed and baffled.”
The last time Led Zeppelin performed together was in 2007 at a benefit in London.
Plant will release a new album on September 9th — Lullaby and…the Ceaseless Roar. And Page is getting set for the next two releases in Led Zeppelin’s catalog reissue campaign — Led Zeppelin 4 and Houses of the Holy — on October 28th.
