In the country for a tour with The Sensational Space Shifters in support of his latest album, "Carry Fire", Plant sat down with presenter Ryan Fitzgerald to discuss a variety of topics, including early performances of the iconic song following its 1971 release on "Led Zeppelin IV."
"I know it's a long song, and I also know that I had a little bit of trouble remembering lyrics, back in '72, '73," explains Plant. "Our manager [Peter Grant], who was quite a formidable personality … he'd come to the front of the stage in the middle of it all and he'd have the lyrics, like that Bob Dylan thing [in his video for 'Subterranean Homesick Blues'] Anyway, it was very funny. "I can't remember what verse goes where. I know there's something about 'bustle in the hedgerow' and then all that stuff.
"The conjecture around that song is hysterical. Because it was a little bit abstract …" While "Stairway To Heaven" went on to become one of the most famous rock songs of all time, Plant remains surprised at the tune's legacy and longevity, saying "I didn't think anything was going to be that big."

Blackmore sat down for an interview with Billboard and was asked "You're a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer now, with Deep Purple. How do you feel about it now that it's happened? Any regrets about not attending the ceremony?"
He responded, "I have no interest in that type of thing. I don't believe in people being in the position where they can say who is in and who is out in the music business.
"Rock n' roll is all about freedom, not having a panel of phantom arbiters discussing who is going to be in and who is going to be out. I think Steve Miller said it best when he was inducted. Check YouTube for that."

Frontman Chris Robertson recently revealed that the new album will mark a change of sound for the group. He told Classic Rock, "This album's not as heavy. In truth, there was some anger and aggression that came out on some of the Kentucky songs, just from changing record labels and stuff like that.

Fair continued, "This was not only music I had always wanted to hear - it was music that I thought would allow me to push myself as a vocalist and try totally new things. I tracked some lo-fi, home studio demos and sent them off to the boys, having no idea if they would be feeling what I was laying down but I know I was! Luckily, they got my vision and encouraged me to push it even further." Check out the campaign
Preorders are currently available here and the band had this to say, "It's worth noting that the compositions appearing on the album are not only based on theoretical concepts and ideas Edgar had outlined, but also on a large number of actual musical sketches that he luckily had already prepared during the initial phase of the band's reformation process.
"Therefore, Quantum Gate is just as much a new beginning as it is a testament to Edgar's never-withering inspiration and ever-flowing creativity." See the tracklistinghere.
Luke (aka Miracle) shared, "Dan and I excel and struggle on similar levels. We have so much passion and we are so ambitious.

We want the band to be for the common man, the underdog, the homeless, the person who shows love to his neighbour."

"Since the narrative and the performance are happening at the same time, you'll have to watch this multiple times to catch it all! This is one of the coolest videos we've ever made." Watch ithere.

The band recruited Vince Lundi to direct the new visual which was filed at the Ohio State Reformatory ('The Shawshank Redemption') and guitarist Justin Olmstead had the following to say, "Everything came together perfectly for the War Is Killing Us All video.
"The song is dark and aggressive, so we wanted to go at it in a unique way that would actually capture the attitude. Capture the mentality of twisted distress and borderline insanity, while portraying that most battles are created and sustained in our own minds, ultimately attacking ourselves.
"Vince Lundi and the crew absolutely killed it on our POV concept, and the everyone at the Ohio State Reformatory was so cool in opening their doors and allowing us virtually free reign on sections of the prison to get the shots we needed to get. Everyone had such a great time hanging out and checking out the prison that it didn't even feel like a video shoot. Definitely an experience we will always remember." Watch the videohere.
