Rock’s immortal “Golden God,” Robert Plant recently sat down for a revealing interview with the Australian edition of ’60 Minutes,’ which saw him hint at the possibility of a Led Zeppelin reunion next year. The video of the segment, which aired this past Friday (Feb. 15), is embedded below.
Over the course of the in-depth conversation, Plant candidly recalled his youthful dreams of stardom, Led Zeppelin’s juggernaut of a career, and his subsequent, eclectic and oftentimes unpredictable solo career.
This, most recently, has seen Plant promoting his newest musical project, the Sensational Space Shifters, featuring Cast guitarist Liam “Skin” Tyson and Patty Griffin, among others, and which he has described as a spontaneous group “inspired by the roots music of Mississippi, Appalachia, Gambia, Bristol and the foothills of Wolverhampton and drawing on influences collected in a lifetime of meander and journeying.”
Plant concluded the interview by addressing the eternal question of a full-scale Led Zeppelin reunion, and coyly affirming that he’s got nothing scheduled for 2014.
That’s right, after discussing Zeppelin’s 2007 one-off performance to honor Atlantic Records executive, Ahmet Ertegun – recently released as the ‘Celebration Day’ DVD – Plant playfully jabs at his two, Capricorn-signed bandmates, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, while dismissing his perceived role as the dissenting voice towards an eventual reunion.
