Led Zeppelin lead singer Robert Plant indicates he might be game for a reunion
Could dancing days be here again for Led Zeppelin?
Singer Robert Plant, 63, whose busy schedule and lack of interest has long been perceived as the impediment to a reunion for the iconic band, told the Australian version of "60 Minutes," that "I'm not the bad guy," and then added waggishly, "I've got nothing to do for 2014."
Guitarist Jimmy Page and bass player John Paul Jones "are both Capricorns," who are "quite contained in their own worlds," and allow others to assume that he is the spoilsport, said Plant.
"So it could be back on again if I can convince the Capricorns?" asked reporter Tara Brown.
"If you can find them," Plant replied.
In a discussion after her interview with Plant, Brown said all the members of the band seemed to blame each other for not reforming and she doubted if one was in the offing. "But it's nice to wonder," she said.
Led Zeppelin dissolved after the death of drummer John Bonham in 1980. The remaining members last performed at a sold-out concert in London in 2007 with Bonham's son, Jason Bonham, playing drums.
Plant played coy when asked by Brown about his racier experiences during the height of Led Zeppelin's popularity. "Amnesia is a fantastic condition," he declared, adding that "you keep moving and you don't write a book."
Should the band reassemble and tour, it is unlikely that fans will see "the golden god of rock" prancing about shirtless on stage, as Plant did in the band's hey day. For the 2007 concert, "The bare chesting was definitely out," he recounted, adding, "I did think about it, but it would have taken a lot of work."
