Robert Plant is REALLY Tired of "That Question"


March 9, 2018

ROBERT PLANT's illustrious, successful, and creative solo career has lasted waaaay longer than his time fronting LED ZEPPELIN, yet the English singer can't seem to get away from the inevitable (and now frustratingly annoying) questions about a reunion of his former band. And with 2018 being the 50th anniversary of Zeppelin, the question keeps coming at him.

It's now been 10 years since Led Zeppelin reunited for their one-off reunion concert (December 2007) which spawned the CD/DVD release of Celebration Day, and with so much attention focused on not only the golden anniversary, but upcoming Zep releases, Plant (once again) reminds anyone who asks that it is all firmly in the past.

In a recent interview with Esquire, Plant says, "... You don’t even have to talk to me if all you want to know about is Led Zeppelin. Thirty-eight years ago John Bonham passed away. That's all I know. That's it. That's the story. You know, Led Zeppelin was an amazing, prolific fun factory for a period of time, but it was three amazing musicians and a singer living in the times. Those times. That's not going to stop me doing what I’m doing now."  

In terms of his solo career and the many creative paths it has taken over the years, Plant is very pleased with the critical reception that his music has received, and it reinforces his feeling that he's "on the right path."

He realizes that he will always be known as the singer for one of the greatest rock bands of all time and that there are those who have absolutely no idea what he has been doing for the past quarter century with his music, but he's more than okay with that. Rock on, Robert Plant!
