Robert Plant on O2 Concert
As the London tour of Led Zeppelin turned out to be a successful one, lead singer, Robert Plant, has spoken out for the first time about his experience at the band's O2 reunion gig last year, on December 10.
Speaking to Esquire Magazine the morning after the show, according to Plant, “It was ramshackle, casual, nervous, overblown, a little self-indulgent – it was all the things we ever were. We were the genuine thing last night. We're not some ambivalent dross that pours into the charts by being some sort of valium for the middle-aged. It was a very decent and exciting visitation.”
However, Plant admitted he did not warm up before gig saying: “We did two songs at a soundcheck the day before, and they were pretty hot. But yesterday [December 10] I had to keep very, very quiet. I didn't want to talk. I just lay in a dark room playing my little ukulele, going: "If I was in Mali, it wouldn’t be like this.”
Concluding the interview Plant remained adamant that a world tour would not happen saying he wanted to concentrate on his project with Alison Kraus. “I really enjoyed playing with my friends [Led Zeppelin], and we are a lot closer because of it. But the responsibility, the whole deal... it's a whole different thing to what I’m doing with Alison.”
”I was singing the same, better, last night. I could go to certain places. But with Alison, it's not about that. It's about being comely. That's where I'm bound,” he added.
Despite of the unsure details, the fans of Led Zeppelin eagerly wait for the announcement of the world tour of the band.
