ROBERT PLANT On Possibility Of Recording With JIMMY PAGE Again: 'It's Not Even Within My Countenance To Imagine It'
January 21, 2018
In a brand new interview with the Louisville, Kentucky radio station 91.9 WFPK, LED ZEPPELIN legend Robert Plant was asked if he could ever see himself recording with Jimmy Page again. "I have no idea," he said (hear audio below). "It's not even within my countenance to imagine it, really."
After DJ Kyle Meredith pointed out that LED ZEPPELIN is still "near and dear to the hearts" of the band's fans, Plant replied: "Me too — nobody more than me. But I don't wanna do it a disservice either."
LED ZEPPELIN hasn't performed together in almost a decade, having last played London's O2 Arena in December 2007.
The concert was part of the Ahmet Ertegun tribute event, which was chronicled on the band's 2012 "Celebration Day" CD and DVD. The set, which featured Jason Bonham subbing for his late father John Bonham on drums, marked Plant, Page and Paul Jones's first full-scale concert together since John Bonham's 1980 death.
Last October, Robert shot down the possibility of a LED ZEPPELIN reunion, telling the Daily Telegraph that "you can't ever really go back." He added: "It's tough enough repeating yourself with something that's a year old, never mind forty-nine years old. I've got to keep moving."
Plant has arguably been the lone holdout for another LED ZEPPELIN reunion. Despite promoter-led attempts to get the band to reform for a series of concerts, Plant remains committed to his new musical direction in the roots and blues-based "Americana" field.
Robert's eleventh solo album, "Carry Fire", was released in October via Nonesuch/Warner.
