Robert Plant’s Lament

Some people think it’s cool that LED ZEPPELIN wrote lyrics about “Lord of the Rings” . . . but Robert Plant doesn’t necessarily see it that way in retrospect.

He said some of his work was great, but he “missed the mark” with some of that stuff . . . quote, “My peer group were writing substantial pieces of social commentary, and I was willowing along the Welsh borders thinking about Gollum.”

“I liked what I did, but now I look at it and go ‘Wooh, that was a bit iffy.’  But I do like ‘Stairway to Heaven’.  I can look at it objectively.  I can’t always get my head around it, but it does do something substantial.”
