Robert Plant: The Joy Of Music
In 2010, Robert Plant talked to Classic Rock about his thoughts on a Zeppelin reunion, the Band Of Joy album and getting it up (his voice, that is!)
A car screeches to a stop on the corner of Fitzroy Road in North London. From the driver’s side, a hand reaches over and opens the passenger door. “Stand on that corner and wait,” orders the car’s sole occupant.
I take in my surroundings: posh ladies walking their dogs, a couple of boulangeries, the odd bistro... All very ordinary, all very normal.
After a few minutes, seemingly from out of nowhere, a whisper in my ear makes me jump: “Fancy coming for a walk in the park with an old man?”. It’s the best offer I’ve had all year. Especially considering the proposition has come from Robert Plant.
