Is Robert Plant finally on board for a Led Zeppelin reunion tour?
Robert Plant has been notoriously outspoken about squashing any rumblings of a Led Zeppelin reunion. He reportedly turned down a $200 million offer to tour after their one-off gig in London in 2007 and has been generally negative about the idea of reuniting an old band. After the Live Aid sets in 1985 Plant was quoted saying, “it was like sleeping with your ex-wife but not making love.”
Which is why his recent interview with Australia’s “60 Minutes” was so compelling. Discussing the band he said, “I got nothing to do in 2014,” leading us to believe that a reunion could be in the cards. This is quite the change of heart from the singer. Jimmy Page recently told Rolling Stone that Plant pulled the plug on a full-blown tour following the band’s 2007 reunion concert in London, because “he was busy.”
In the interview Plant however does not blame the band’s inactivity on himself. He said, “They [Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones] don’t say a word. They’re quite contained in their own worlds and they leave it to me.”
Either way this could be a great sign for all you Zeppelin fans out there. Arguably one of the biggest bands of all time, Led Zeppelin transcends generations. Millions of kids have gone through a Zeppelin phase and the name alone brings back memories for all age groups. Here’s hoping that the gang can get back together for one last awesome tour.
