Robert Plant Not Ready to Retire
The 73-year-old lead vocalist of Led Zeppelin refuses to retire from music because he enjoys what he does and loves learning something new in the industry.
AceShowbiz –Robert Plant has no plans to retire from making music.
The Led Zeppelin frontman released his second duets album, “Raise the Roof”, with Alison Krauss on Friday (19Nov21), and the musician has insisted he still loves what he does and isn’t ready to call it quits anytime soon.
In an interview with Britain’s The Daily Telegraph newspaper, Robert said, “I was 19 on the first Led Zeppelin rehearsals, and I was 32 when John (Bonham, drummer) passed away, that awful time.”
“People used to say to me, ‘Well, you must have done enough now?’ Enough of f**king what? ‘Enough to retire!’ “
“So imagine the blessing to be 40 years further down the road, and I still don’t know enough to stop in any respect.”
“There’s always something new to learn, somewhere new to take it. I love it.”
“Raise the Roof” comes 14 years after his and Krauss’s Grammy-winning “Raising Sand” LP.
While he’s keen to continue making music, he ruled out reuniting with his bandmates.
“The good thing about Alison and I is that we’re a couple of kindred spirits. Most musicians form a band, then they stay in the band until it’s over – 20 years, 30 years, 50 years, whatever it is, and it starts to look sadly decrepit. It’s like people hanging onto a life raft, or staying in a comfortable place.”
“With us two, there’s nothing written in blood. We were ready to do something new, and we knew how good it was before, so we can just join up again and see where we go. We’ve got nothing to lose.”
