This is his only interest in his part of the Zeppelin legacy sadly.

Did you see his interview with Dan Rather?  He spoke very highly of and emotionally about Zeppelin.  In particular why to this day he is most proud of his contribution to Kashmir.

Like every other interview he does he only raises Zeppelin to highlight 

some other project he is working on .On this occasion 

it's the singles box set . His comments ref Stairway are no surprise and are there to guarantee 

a headline or strap for the article in this case "Plant will never perform Stairway again because he can't relate to it"

This is his only interest in his part of the Zeppelin legacy sadly.

I have to agree with you.

That was an excellent interview.  Dan Rather's series with different musicians is can't miss television, IMO.

I’d love to hear JP w/ JPJ (w/ arrangement assistance), along w/ Jason Bonham and a top Symphony Orchestra doing Led Zeppelin classics (whether live and/or for an album release).

There most likely are versions of sth by page, jones and jason practicing for the O2 that will never be heard.

I’m sure you’re correct. Jason videotapes everything rehearsal related.

Folks, only one person in this world wrote the words to STH, a song which means so much to millions through the years, but something Plant wrote when he was, what 22 years old? What dire poetry was most of us writing at that age?

So if he says that, it's not too surpriseing. Look at the man's long and varied trajectories. Spot the touchstones and tendrils and spores. Think about how proud he was of his Mighty Rearranger lyrics. There's the tone of latter man, no?

I interpret this as not that he can't relate to any of those older Zep songs, but STH has a heavy weight to it, and the lyrics are of his youth. He's no problem with, say, Ramble On.

So really, who among us - who - could stand up and truly imagine what it must be like to be the actual person who wrote the bloody words of STH? And then judge him for his comment on this one particular song. Lordy lordy. Plus falls for the classic mistake of not double-checking whether Percy was in fact taking the piss a little - as one commenter said above it's prob part of the PR for his new box set .  Season of good will and all. Anyhoo, seasons greetings.

I wonder how he relates to That’s The Way and Tangerine? Two beautiful songs.

He sung them both in 2005. Agreed that they are both beautiful songs.
