jive Posted December 17, 2007 Share Posted December 17, 2007 You know, I more than anyone would love to see a new Led Zeppelin go on reunion tour, and perhaps make a new album... - And I know that both would be off the charts. But I think we just need to face the music. Robert Plant has moved on. Sure I'm not the biggest fan of his 80's and 90's solo work, but when I read things like this: "The whole idea of being on a cavalcade of merciless repetition is not what it's all about" , he also made it known that he could be in favour of more one-off shows in the near future: "It wouldn't be such a bad idea to play together from time to time." I groan and then think, well I guess he just has to do what makes him happy as a person. He always has been reluctant to re-unite with Led Zeppelin, -and perhaps he has good reason. There are many things that we just don't know. Experiences with Zep or some of the band members that were breaking points... decision makers that makes him hesitate. Perhaps he felt trapped, or just has the desire to explore other realms of music. Who knows. People get older and move on. They want to do things that will foster their own personal growth and progression. And I suspect that Robert doesn't feel like that will happen with Zep. The Raising Sands album is not at all a bad album, and it is good to see the sudden reinvigoration of Robert Plant. I think perhaps he was always there, but just not in connection with the larger masses (myself included), that have been drawn to this new album and the Reunion tour. And I guess it only right that he stay true to himself and his own personal musical engagements then the desires of the masses. And only this seems to produce natural and inspired music. We wouldn't want a hesitant, resentful Plant on the stage.... So with that said, Good luck Robert Plant, Alison Krauss and Zep! I wait in anticipation for whatever is next.
