Robert Plant responded to Jimmy Page’s criticism of Plant for avoiding a Led Zeppelin reunion in a new interview with Uncut Magazine.
“I feel for [Page],” Plant said. “He knows he’s got the headlines if he wants them. But I don’t know what he’s trying to do. So I feel slightly disappointed and baffled.”
Plant went on to say that he almost began writing new material with Page a couple years ago. “A couple of years ago I said, ‘If you’ve got anything acoustic, let me know,” he said. “I’ll give it a whirl. It was hands across the water. He just walked away. But we couldn’t do anything proper. The weight of expectation is too great.”
