When Did Led Zeppelin Break Up: Why Did Led Zeppelin Never Get Back Together?
During the most recent episode of his Digging Deep podcast, Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant talked about how the death of drummer John Bonham pushed him to become a solo artist after being known only as the Led Zeppelin frontman. Alternative Nation wrote down what he said. The plant also recently showed a bad photo of him being arrested.
“This song is called ‘As I’ve Never Been Gone.’ Since I was 17, it was my first time going out on my own as an artist. I was only 33 when Led Zeppelin came out, and the last twelve years of my life have been kind of warm, sometimes cold, and sometimes somewhere in between. So, when we all lost John [Bonham], there was only one thing to do: keep going, try to keep going, and try to get as far away from the wonderful shadow of the past as I could.
A video of an embarrassing performance by Robert Plant was just put online. John Bonham helped start the band Led Zeppelin and played with them until the day he died. The plant has spoken out in the past about how much Bonham’s death hurt him. Last year, Billboard magazine reported that Plant turned down the chance to reunite Led Zeppelin in the late 2000s because of Bonham’s death.
Bonham says, “We practiced for six weeks for one show, so I thought we must be doing more.” But when he went to a soccer game with Plant in England, the drummer found out that wasn’t true.
“On the way back, I asked Plant, ‘I’ve got to ask you, are we going to get the band back together?'” Bonham thinks back. “He told me, ‘I loved your dad too much. It’s not meant to be rude. You know the material better than anyone else, and no one else alive can play it like you. But it’s different. I can’t just go out and pretend. I can’t be a jukebox. I can’t try to do it that way out there.” Bonham says that Plant also felt strongly about Zep’s announcement that the band was over soon after his father died in 1980.
“He told me, ‘When your father left us and the world, Led Zeppelin was over. What The Who did, we couldn’t do. Was too important.’
Bonham goes on: “And I got it.” “I had no problem with that at all. Robert and my dad had known each other since they were about 15 years old. For [Plant], it was a lot deeper. So I didn’t mind. It was a lot of fun, and the best way to end it was with that great concert. Plant said, “We needed to do one more great concert, and then we could put it to rest.”
