    Robert Plant @ at Silver Clef Awards.

    He used to have a house in Primrose Hill though I think he primarily resides in the Midlands.

    Is Jimmy Page done making music?

    I don't think he has any intention of playing live or recording. I think he keeps insinuating it so it doesn't look like he's "done" or retired IMO. I am fine if he is - he owes us nothing, but I'm tired of him saying he "should be out playing" etc.

    Robert meets up with Jimmy & JPJ recently

    Why - because he chooses not to go back to his former band? I don't think that makes him a diva. His comments may sound a bit harsh, but I honestly think (and I'm not one of those who thinks he is "God" and can do no wrong) it's his way of deflecting the discussion. I believe he's quite proud of his work with Zep and honored to have worked with JPJ and JP but when Bonzo passed, in his heart, the band couldn't ever be. I don't think there's anything diva or snooty about that. John Paul Jones is happily doing all sorts of interesting projects and I don't see him clamoring for a reunion. Seems to me it's mostly Page who for some reason, can't seem to do any project not involving the other two and Jason.

    It's his own hair.

    Robert Plant: Full Interview | House Of Strombo

    I think he was using that not as a direct criticism of the fans, but more he wasn't interested in playing big arenas as well as things seeming to turn into a Zep reunion etc.

    Cause of plant/JPJ friction

    I've not heard any of that but it's good to know.
  7. He absolutely would have been known - is voice was too amazing and unique for it not to have been. What sort of band he would have ended up in is hard to say. It's just exhausting to see yet another comment like this, insinuating he owes his life to Page blah blah blah when it's just not true. You could make the claim all four of them may not have been as successful had they not all met and decided to work together. The strength of that band is the combination of all of them equally.

    Cause of plant/JPJ friction

    He;s said many nice things about Zep, Page and Jones over the years. I've not heard Page or Jones say anything about Robert complimentary though. I think you are reading too into his comments - his sense of humor is what it is and often pulled out to deflect having yet more discussions on Zep when he's being interviewed based on a new release.

    The Rest in Peace Thread

    I don't think it was a matter of he "had" to choose suicide. For those suffering from depression, sometimes the pain runs so deep they don't see any other way to get peace then to end their life. It's a horrific place to be in for those who have it and those around them. I don't know what it will take or how many more lives have to be lost before more research is put into finding a way to treat it.
  10. I know he was working hard to get more exposure and all, and the great fortune was having Jimmy see him and bring him into the mix. My point was more that he doesn't OWE Jimmy anything. Jimmy didn't "make" him. Robert had a huge amount of natural talent and that blended and worked amazing with Jimmy and of course John Paul and Bonzo. He has been very kind in his words to Jimmy over the years, particularly in the early days when Jimmy was more active with his own solo career. I can't say I've ever heard Jimmy say anything about Robert's music, regardless, Robert has shown gratitude for being a part of Zep, but that ended in 1980 and he made a choice to leave the memories and the music there and carry forward.
  11. Why does he owe Jimmy anything? He was just as valuable a member of making Zep a success as ALL OF THEM. His talent would not have gone unnoticed if Jimmy hadn't gone to see him.
  12. Jimmy goes without saying, especially as he was already well known. I think John Paul Jones would have been successful as a musician, even if it was more of a niche fan base. Way too much talent not to be. Robert's voice was too amazing that had Jimmy not gotten him, someone would have and I think he'd have been well known. Bonzo it would have depended on where he ended up - not a reflection of his talent but just being much less known at the time. Though I would imagine Robert would have wanted to bring him on board where he would have been, like he did with Zep.

    How about an acoustic reunion?

    He also probably dismisses the questions with "I can't remember" because the interviewers are looking for stories about the wild aspects of their being on the road. I can't blame him for not having any interest in sharing all that. It was so long ago - they were four young guys with the world at their feet and at a time when things were more "loose". What did anyone expect would happen. I'm sure he's not proud of it, even if at the time, it was all in fun. And by proud, I'm referring to the antics. I think he's been pretty clear about being proud of Zep's accomplishments.

    Japanese History & Culture (Showa Period: 1926-1989)

    Very interesting. Thanks for sharing. The things you admire are things that would be wonderful to see in other countries. I can certainly imagine no matter how long you would live there (anyone), if you're not Japanese, you will always be somewhat of an outsider.

    Japanese History & Culture (Showa Period: 1926-1989)

    Steve just curious - I'm not sure how long you've lived in Japan versus how many years you were in the US, but do you find apart from the language, assimilating to the culture as an American? Also, what aspects of Japanese culture do you admire and dislike compared to the US? If you want to answer off this thread, I'm fine with that.
