Robert Plant was asked during a radio interview broadcast on June 25 whether Led Zeppelin will reunite and perform again — and his answer suggested that it’s not going to happen.
RTÉ Radio 1 host Miriam O’Callaghan interviewed Plant along with BP Fallon for her show on June 25. She ended her interview with Plant by asking him about the “Any time now…” message on his website. Does it mean that Led Zeppelin will perform again, and could Fallon join them?
“Well, BP can be part of anything you like,” Plant answered. “As far as I know, I’m opening the tea room at a garden centre very shortly.”
O’Callaghan pressed Plant for an answer — will Led Zeppelin perform again?
“The tea room in the garden centre will have one or two decrepit octogenarians who will be playing ‘Misty Mountain Hop’ in a corner somewhere and sadly I’ll just be cutting the ribbon,” was Plant’s answer.
Elsewhere in the interview, Plant spoke about other rock musicians. “A lot of my contemporaries seem to have checked out and they all look like they’re trying to get a part in ‘Cocoon 4,'” Plant joked. “Or everybody’s waiting in the swimming pool for the rock to drop in so that they can become the Jim Morrisons of the next era or whatever it is.”
