Robert Plant could utilize his Digging Deep podcast when it comes to releasing music from the archives, but he is saying ‘no’ to a memoir.
In Classic Rock magazine Plant says, "I’ve got stuff that I did in New Orleans with the Li’l Band O’ Gold and Allen Toussaint. I’ve done so many things. I’ve got a whole album, Band of Joy II, that I did with Buddy Miller and Patty Griffin. I’ve got stuff everywhere. So it might be a good way to gather some pretty powerful stuff and just eke it out there. … It’s not just about stuff that came out through the normal channels.”
Here are Plant’s thoughts on a memoir: “Everything that I’ve got between my ears, or between my legs, is my business and nobody else’s," says Plant. "I know too many things, and when I finally depart this mortal coil, I don’t want my family to think that I was some kind of weirdo. … So I keep it hid. One of the tracks off my last record is about just that – ‘Keep It Hid.' And that’s what you have to do.”
Plant did take part in compiling the 2018 book, Led Zeppelin by Led Zeppelin, an illustrated history of the band.
