Robert Plant speaks about Led Zeppelin tour

Singer says he's in regular contact with bandmate Jimmy Page

Robert Plant has said that the chances of a full Led Zeppelin tour are still slim, despite the fact he still remains in regular contact with Jimmy Page.

In an interview broadcast yesterday (December 21) on BBC Radio Wales, Plant said he was happy to continue working on music with Alison Krauss, who he has been touring with since 2007.

He said: “I’m doing very well with Alison and I’m enjoying that. I still see Jimmy quite a lot and he’s very complimentary and supportive of what I’m doing. But we are in different places now and you have to go on to do different things.”

In October that Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones had confirmed that the band – minus Plant – wanted to tour with a replacement vocalist.

Robert Plant previously ruled himself out of any possible Led Zeppelin tour, saying he found the constant rumours about him being part of a full reunion “frustrating”.
