Robert Plant Says Performing With Led Zeppelin Wouldn’t “Satisfy” His “Need To Be Stimulated”

During a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Robert Plant casted doubt on a potential Led Zeppelin reunion. The frontman says the idea wouldn’t “satisfy [his] need to be stimulated.”

Plant said the following while discussing his voice:

“I know that the full, open-throated falsetto that I was able to concoct in 1968 carried me through until I was tired of it. Then that sort of exaggerated personality of vocal performance morphed and went somewhere else. But as a matter of fact, I was playing in Reykjavík, in Iceland, about three years ago, just before COVID. It was Midsummer Night and there was a festival, and I got my band and I said, ‘OK, let’s do ‘Immigrant Song’.’ They’d never done it before. We just hit it, and bang — there it was. I thought, ‘Oh, I didn’t think I could still do that.'”

He continued when it was mentioned that fans would like to hear Led Zeppelin play “Immigrant Song”:

“Going back to the font to get some kind of massive applause — it doesn’t really satisfy my need to be stimulated.”

He also added:

“I know there are people from my generation who don’t want to stay home and so they go out and play. If they’re enjoying it and doing what they need to do to pass the days, then that’s their business, really.”

I weaved my car through the Delta back roads, listening to the remarkable protestations of Mississippi AM radio. I was looking at my world and my times from this unfamiliar place and found myself exposed to a nightmare world of half-truths.”
