Robert Plant: ‘I can’t relate to Led Zeppelin any more’

Singer describes reunion speculation as 'a bit of a pain in the pisser'

Robert Plant has again said that there will be no more live dates from Led Zeppelin – because he “can’t relate” to the band any more.

Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine, Plant has decribed the continued calls from fans for more shows as “a bit of a pain in the pisser”.

He said the reason he wasn’t up for reuniting again was because he had “gone so far somewhere else that I almost can’t relate to it [Led Zeppelin]”.


Plant said that the band’s reunion show at London‘s O2 Arena in December 2007 “was an amazing evening and represented all that we were trying to capture”. He acknowledged that there is a continued interest in more performances, but said: “I know people care, but think about it from my angle – soon, I’m going to need help crossing the street.”

Plant‘s latest album with new project Band Of Joy was released last September.
