Plant Talks About Reaching Out To Page For Acoustic Project

WASHINGTON - DECEMBER 2: Robert Plant (L) and Jimmy Page of the band Led Zeppelin attend the Kennedy Center Honors reception at the White House on December 2, 2012 in Washington, DC. The Kennedy Center Honors recognized seven individuals - Buddy Guy, Dustin Hoffman, David Letterman, Natalia Makarova, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, and Robert Plant - for their lifetime contributions to American culture through the performing arts.
Hmmmm…looks like Robert Plant hasn’t always been against working with Jimmy Page again.

For the past few months, Led Zeppelin reunion rumors have been flying, especially in light of their remastered catalog rollout.  And while Plant has emphatically said he’s not interested in a reunion, he did say in a recent interview that he tried reaching out to Page to do some acoustic material but received the cold shoulder.

Plant said to Uncut magazine (via Blabbermouth), “A couple of years ago, I said, 'If you've got anything acoustic, let me know. I'll give it a whirl. It was hands across the water. He just walked away. But we couldn't do anything proper. The weight of expectation is too great."

Plant’s got a point.  How do you really top anything he and Page did with Zeppelin?  It’s impossible.  Ooh…it makes me wonder whether or not this is part of the reason Plant has taken such a stand against another reunion.
