Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant Says He Doesn't Revel In The Past

(hennemusic) Filmmaker Russ Spencer caught up with Robert Plant for a rare video interview on his current US tour with the Sensational Space Shifters.

The two sat down before Plant's June 28th show at the Santa Barbara Bowl in Santa Barbara, CA to discuss the singer's tour and current inspirations.

"You know, singing in a band, or just singing generally, you've got to be inspired," explained Robert. "So I just choose a path that suits me. When I want to do it, then I do it.

"When you are a performer you love to perform, you know, but monotony is not something I would be a party to...so I have to cut my cloth accordingly. Some people want it the same every night; I can't do that…it's not my gig."

"I'm not a guy who really revels in the past; if I did, I would be in a much different position now," said Plant, making a reference to the difference between playing with Led Zeppelin and his current situation. "But that would be kind of hollow, perhaps." more on this story
