Robert Plant's Led Zeppelin acoustic plans rejected by Jimmy Page



Robert Plant has revealed that he suggested reuniting Led Zeppelin as an acoustic project. With Plant and Jimmy Page squabbling over their band's potential comeback, Plant claims that Page rejected a recent proposal to record new, unplugged music.

"A couple of years ago, I said, 'If you've got anything acoustic, let me know. I'll give it a whirl,'" Plant recently told Uncut, (via NME ). "It was hands across the water. [But Jimmy] just walked away."

Plant's proposal to make unplugged music is reflective of the kind of music he has been making in recent years: Raising Sand, with bluegrass singer Alison Krauss and his jammier work with Band of Joy and the Sensational Space Shifters. Page, as Led Zeppelin's lead guitarist, has shown much less interest in turning off the amplifiers.

Still, even if Page, Plant and John Paul Jones could reconcile, Plant has little faith that the band are capable of writing a modern classic. "We couldn't do anything proper," he said. "The weight of expectation is too great." And although there's discussion of a new tour, Page and Plant seem to be talking at cross-purposes: "I don't know what [Jimmy's] trying to do," Page said. "I feel slightly disappointed and baffled."

In almost two decades, the surviving members of Led Zeppelin have performed together only once: at London's O2 in December 2007.
