Robert Plant hinted that 2014 might see another revival of Led Zeppelin. During his recent appearance on Australia's 60 Minutes, he planted the seed for future band activities -- while pointing the finger at Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones for holding up ongoing Zep plans. Plant defended himself against fans believing that he's the sole holdout for new Zeppelin music and road dates, saying, "Y'know, the two other guys are Capricorns and they keep schtum. They don't say a word. But they are quite contained in their own worlds and they leave it to me. . . and I'm not the bad guy."
When reminded that the fans long believed him to be the "bad guy," Plant said, "Well then, you need to see the Capricorns -- 'cause, I've got nothing to do in 2014."
Last October at the New York City press conference following the press preview of Zeppelin's new concert film, Celebration Day, Plant played it coy -- and then downright rude -- to reporters clamoring for some type of statement about future Zeppelin plans. After some coaxing by the event's moderator, Plant finally answered the reunion question with a bit of respect for the reporters in the room: "We were so happy that we were actually gettin' it right (coughs) and taking it beyond what we thought we were about that night. There were moments in it where we just took off and pushed off in some place. The responsibility of doing that four nights a week for the rest of time is a different thing. 'Cause, we're pretty good at what we do; the tail should never wag the dog. If we're capable of doing something in our own time that will be what will happen. So any inane questions who are from syndicated outlets (laughter), you should just really think what it takes to answer a question like that in one second, y'know? We know what we've got."
