snapper Posted February 14, 2008 Share Posted February 14, 2008 You are, I believe, way off the mark. I honestly think Robert is very protective of Led Zeppelin and all it stands for. You only had to read the Uncut interview in September to know how highly he rates them (the best). The fact that he doesn't want to tour is not an indication that he has no idea of how Led Zeppelin means to many people - he is fully aware of that and he wants to keep the legacy intact. I can only applaud him for not chasing the easy money. Why the hell should he? His current project with Alison has been in the making a lot longer than the O2 gig. How the hell do you think he feels when he's trying to promote an album and tour and he still gets the same questions about Zeppelin when that's obviously not where he wants to go? Awww, poor Robert, he must be living a real fucking nightmare ....'that damn Zeppelin keeps coming up everytime I try to promote my new project'. Boo fucking hoo. When I said that Plant doesn't seem to embrace Zeppelin the way Page or Jones do it wasn't because of Plants not wanting to tour, it is because of belittling comments like this: "I thought: this is really cute, all these fucking old blokes huddled round John’s [bonham] son.” "Cute"? What an asshole. By the way, I personally feel that Zeppelin should never do a full scale tour, a few select dates here and there would be the better route.
