Trey Posted August 28, 2014 Share Posted August 28, 2014 http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/11058691/Robert-Plant-Theres-only-me-Mick-Jagger-and-Rod-Stewart-left.html In this interview released today Robert talks about Jimmy saying “He should get on and do something, he’s a superb talent. That’s the sad thing for Jimmy, he knows that I’m his guy, I’m his pal, but the warmth that he needs to actually enjoy the world, it’s all there. Come on and give it to us.” I feel stupid but the way Robert phrases this I can't be sure I have it exactly! What does he mean by I'm his guy and the warmth he needs out in the world? What's Robert implying? This interview has really got me thinking of the many quotes we've seen in the press from Jimmy and Robert over last few years. What is the deal with Jimmy and Robert's relationship? I've been watching past interviews with Led Zep and there are very telling signs of tension between them. In Charlie Rose Led Zep interview 2012 Charlie really asks the tough questions to Robert about how it was him who didn't want to do a tour and keep reunion going. If you watch Jimmy he's smiling as he says this as if he's glad that that Robert has to deal with this question. Robert sidesteps the question and I feel that he's not giving the real reason as to why he wants to tour. Charlie then asks Jimmy why couldn't Led Zep be about the future and Jimmy shrugs. Why is he shrugging? Shouldn't he be sure about the band's future? Sorry for going on but I thought this Rose interview was the best as it really highlighted the tension. If you watch JP Jones and Jimmy's body language when Robert is talking it's very telling- constant tapping of fingers and facial expressions! Why is there this tension and why can't they all sit down and have a talk? It seems a lot is left unsaid with these three judging from the awkwardness and tension. There has been back and forth between Robert and Jimmy this year in the press. Jimmy saying he's fed up and Robert saying he's disappointed and baffled by Jimmy and so on. Even in a recent radio interview with Page he jokingly says he doesn't think Robert wants him to be anywhere but this shows his true feelings. Does Jimmy think Robert doesn't like him anymore and that's why he won't play with him? He doesn't seems to understand Robert's reasons for not getting back with Zep because he says he can't understand why Robert wants to play Led zep with other band members and not the original guys. They obviously don't communicate and talk. Is Jimmy really puzzled by Robert not wanting to do this or is he playing a game? Why can't they pick up the phone or meet for a chat? I'm just really interested to hear the views on Jimmy and Robert's relationship now from people here. I'd love for Jimmy to release new music and tour also!
