Iconic Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant has called out ‘impersonators’ on social media, and no, he isn’t talking about Greta Van Fleet. Robert Plant discussed being ‘banned’ from a performance with Jimmy Page earlier this year.
Plant said, “We have been made aware of several accounts impersonating RP and subsequent scams involving M&G’s. Robert NEVER communicates with fans personally and only communicates via his official channels. Please be alert and vigilant and stay safe.”
Robert’s Led Zeppelin bandmate Jimmy Page recently told GQ magazine that he fears for the music industry’s future with the pandemic.
“When we first went into lockdown I thought, ‘Right, now’s the time to start thinking about coming back at some point and being able to perform.’ It’s such a very sad and desperate time, and what this virus has done internationally to families, to the arts, and everything we love and hold dear and the whole concert situation, it does worry me.”
“I will never be one of those people who’ll record alone and send someone a file. I never went into music in the first place to do that, it was for playing together and this is what it means.”
“We need to play with people, we need gigs and we need community. Because without that, music means nothing. Playing live is so important for young musicians. When we were young, we all had these little gigs, hoping to play somewhere bigger and it’s such an important part of that communion of musicians playing together. For me it’s always been the most important thing.”
Homesweetmobilehome commented on Reddit that Page is aging gracefully, “I think people really underestimate the power of being a teenager at heart. You can see it in It might get loud. If you can stay in that state of mind it has to help. Tell yourself you are old and your body starts behaving like it is. McCartney and Ringo are other great examples.”
Ofekt92 added, “I hope too to look so good at such an advanced age, given that he has lived an entire decade of his life in a total state of debauchery.”
