Robert Plant has just premiered the fifth season of his Digging Deep podcast. The first episode of season 5 covered the making Led Zeppelin 3, which the band did pre-production for and recorded at a cottage and mansion in the English countryside.
Plant was asked about the rustic nature of the cabin. The rock legend said it didn't faze him. Plant even joked that he's begun to resemble a character on the cover of Zeppelin’s biggest album.
Robert added, “You’re there for a reason and you’re just in it, so all that actually adds to it – the idea of going outside and bringing in kindling. All that stuff is part of the whole deal and remains so in my time now. In fact, the old guy with the sticks on his back on Zeppelin IV, I’m now that guy. I mean, I pick up kindling everywhere I go and wrap it around with a piece of baling twine and shunt it on my back just in case anyone’s driving by, and they go, ‘There’s that guy from the Led Zeppelin IV album cover!’”
The next episode of Digging Deep will be debut next Monday, April 25th.
