He talks about the possibility of future reunion shows…
NME reports that former Led Zeppelin member Robert Plant thought a reunion of the band without him would've been a good idea. Jimmy Page reportedly expected to do more shows without Plant after the reunion concert in 2007 in London. Below are some highlights from Plant:
Plant on why the reunion without him got halted: "They had a singer. I don't know what happened. It sounded like a great idea to me."
Plant on if there would be any future Led Zeppelin shows with him and Page: "You're going back to the same old s***. A tour would have been an absolute menagerie of vested interests and the very essence of everything that's shitty about big-time stadium rock. We were surrounded by a circus of people that would have had our souls on the fire. I'm not part of a jukebox."
Plant on not entirely ruling out the possibility of future shows: "Everything will develop as it develops. All doors are open. All phone lines are open. I don't hear from anybody. Talk is cheap, but I just think everything has to be new. Then you can incorporate history." Comparing the chances to those of The Eagles, who reformed in 1994 after a 14-year split, Plant said: "Do you know why The Eagles said they'd reunite when hell freezes over, but they did it anyway and keep touring? It's not because they were paid a fortune. It's not about the money. It's because they're bored. I'm not bored."
