How Can Led Zeppelin Hate Led Zeppelin?
It’s been 10 years since the last time the three surviving members of Led Zeppelin shared the same stage. Since that historic night at the O2 arena in London back in 2007, there have been a whirlwind of rumors of if the band will ever reunite. However, it’s looking more and more like that will just never happen.
Meanwhile Robert Plant has been touring solo material, and has been including Led Zeppelin tunes in his set that he will cover, or rework. But recently Plant opened up in an interview, and revealed that there are some old Led Zeppelin tunes that make him cringe, because he believes that his vocals are terrible! Plant said:
“[I] realized that tough, manly approach to singing I’d begun on [the 1966 track with the band Listen] ‘You Better Run’ wasn’t really what it was all about at all. Songs like [Zeppelin’s] ‘Babe I’m Going to Leave You’ … I find my vocals on there horrific now. I really should have shut the f*** up!”– Plant revealed.
Anybody can relate to what Robert is saying here. Anytime you hear your own voice, you tend to hate it because it sounds weird to you. Plus, Plant’s voice was young, and it eventually got better and manlier over time. We’re happy Robert kept singing though, because his music will live on forever!
Even at his age, he can still blow anyone out of the water which speaks volumes about the man’s talent and musicality. He may not be impressed with his pipes when he was younger but it doesn’t change the fact that he has one of the most unique and distinctive voices in rock ‘n roll.
