Robert Plant: Chance of Led Zeppelin Performing Again is ‘Zero’
The upcoming reissues of the first three Led Zeppelin albums has put its members in front of the media again. As so often happens in these situations, questions of a possible reunion get asked, only to be shot down. This time, it was Robert Plant who deflated everyone’s hopes, emphatically saying that it was never going to happen again.
This morning (April 23), Plant and Jimmy Page were interviewed by the BBC promoting the reissues. NME is reporting that Page was asked if they would ever get back together for another show along the lines of the 2007 concert that resulted in the ‘Celebration Day‘ movie and album.
“I’m sure people would love to hear it,” Page said. “I’m not the one to be asking, I don’t sing.”
But when Plant was asked about the chances of it happening again, his answer was a declarative “zero.”
Regardless, the reissues seem to be keeping Page plenty occupied, and has given him a bit of a lesson on how his approach to playing guitar has changed over the years. “My enthusiasm sometimes got in the way of finesse,” he said. “I listen to it and go, ‘Wow, why didn’t I shut up a bit?’ I kind of overcooked it.” But he still adds, “It’s undeniable that we’re good. The band was the real deal.”
