Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant discussed the 2007 Led Zeppelin reunion show recently on AXS TV’s ‘A Life on the Road.’ Alternative Nation transcribed his comments. Robert Plant discussed the night he spent with an A-list female singer last week.
“We did that thing in 2007, 10 years ago, with Jason [Bonham] playing, he played so well, and the guys played fantastic. I sang okay, it was all good. It was more like a gesture, and without John [Bonham], it was like, goodness me.
Biographer Mick Wall added, “After the O2, the deals were on the table for Led Zeppelin to do every major football stadium in America and the rest of the world. He didn’t do any of that, he went out and played county fairs, and riverboats, and wonderful theaters in New Orleans with the magic that Robert really relates to.”
Greta Van Fleet broke their silence on Robert Plant disrespect last month. Plant later discussed poor offers Led Zeppelin received for tours early in their career.
“The whole deal of what we were doing had picked up momentum, and we weren’t really aware of it. Obviously Peter [Grant] knew, me and Bonzo had no idea really, we were pretty green. We had no idea, but there were offers being made, and the offers were very poor. Peter Grant said, ‘Let’s see what happens.’ Promoters realized that 10-15% of something is better than 0% of nothing.”
After Robert Plant rejected offers for a 2008 Led Zeppelin reunion tour, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and Jason Bonham jammed with Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy and Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler, but nothing ever came of the sessions, with Page quietly retiring from touring and John Paul Jones joining Them Crooked Vultures. Jimmy Page recently revealed a photo of comeback recording sessions.
