50 Years of Led Zeppelin
This year marks the 50th anniversary of Led Zeppelin. Robert Plant has recently discussed whether he sees himself recording with his former Led Zeppelin bandmate Jimmy Page again. During an interview with DJ Kyle Meredith on 91.9 WFPK, in Louisville. Plant said he had “no idea” whether the two would work together again. “It’s not even within my countenance to imagine it, really,” he said. When Meredith noted that fans still hold the band “dear in their hearts”, the singer responded: “Me too – nobody more than me. But I don’t want to do it a disservice either.”
Robert Plant recently released his latest album with the Sensational Space Shifters, Carry Fire, and he’s about to embark on a North American tour in support of Carry Fire. The album includes a collaboration with The Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde and he revealed that he and Alison Krauss have discussed a sequel to their Grammy-winning collaborative album, Raising Sand.
However, last year, Jimmy Page teased “all manner of surprises” coming in 2018 to mark the band’s landmark anniversary. In an interview for the Academy Of Achievement at The Oxford Union, Page said the surviving members of the group would be celebrating the milestone in 2018. “There’ll be Led Zeppelin product coming out, for sure, that people haven’t heard, because I’m working on that,” he said.
