Although the resurgence of interest in LED ZEPPELIN has reignited stories of Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones being offered millions of dollars to reunite for a tour, Plant told Billboard.com, "I haven't been offered a dime." But then he added, "That's because I've told the people who have the opportunity [to talk to me about it] that I don't want to hear anything about it. I told them ages ago: It's not an issue."
However, he doesn't rule out the three surviving members getting together again, as long as it is for something new. "If John Paul, Jimmy and I play again, it has got to be a little more than 'Black Dog' every night. I left that big-time epicenter a long time ago."
As for the success of the group's recently released live CD, "How the West Was Won", which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200, and accompanying DVD, "Led Zeppelin", Plant says, "it thrills me," but that the footage reminds him of the passage of time. "[LED ZEPPELIN] was a young band," he says. "It was all over by the time I was 31. When I think about people who are 31 now, they're just learning to tie their shoelaces."
Plant will be issuing a two-CD solo collection, "Sixty Six to Timbuktu", on November 4 through Atlantic Records. The 35-track set include not only Plant's own solo hits, but also pre-ZEPPELIN solo tracks from 1966-67 along with various collaborations he's done before and after ZEPPELIN.
