Robert Plant has announced that he will share the ‘very personal’ process of making records with Led Zeppelin fans on his new podcast ‘Digging Deep.’ The podcast will premiere on June 3rd. Plant said he was ‘desperate’ to get out of recording environments, and encouraged his bandmates to shake things up.
Plant also recently met with AC/DC singer Brian Johnson for his television show at Penmaenpool Bridge, which spans the Mawddach river between Dolgellau and Barmouth, with Robert Plant carrying a sword and wearing a sort-of robe.
Plant said, “In 1973, Zeppelin made this strange movie called The Song Remains the Same,” Plant tells Johnson.
“And each of us chose a kind of topic that we wanted to intersperse the music with so I chose to come up here. This is the very same apparel.
“This is the Mawddach Valley and the beautiful Mawddach river that goes out to the Cambrian coast there. It’s beautiful, isn’t it? This is called the Misty Mountains here.”
Jimmy Page recently wrote on Instagram, “On this day in 2004, I presented B.B. King with the Polar Music Prize. It was an honour to be invited to be a part of this, as B.B. King was a figure who inspired generations of musicians, from his contemporaries to the present day.
Also a recipient of the music prize that day was György Ligeti – the avant garde classical composer whose Lux Aeterna was featured in the film ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ 🚀”
