Biography of rock legend Robert Plant goes on sale Robert Plant reveals why Led Zeppelin reunion won't happenA new biography of rock legend Robert Plant reveals why another Led Zeppelin coach outlet coupons universal studios reunion won't ever happen.
He had joined up with bandmates Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones and walked tall once more. "When at last Plant threw open his door all of coach outlet purses 20 those who came to shake his hand and pound his back told him what he already knew," says Paul. "He, they, had been great. Better than anyone could ever have hoped they might be. His doubts had been stilled. His debt, such as it was, had been honoured. "Pat and Joan Bonham, wife and mother of John, the friend and colleague he had buried a lifetime or a heartbeat ago, were among the last he welcomed, and he held them especially close. "Jason, their son and grandson, had sat in his father's drum seat that night. He told them how proud John would have been of his only son. And then the ghosts came back to him again. "He was supposed to go to some featureless hospitality room upstairs to meet with friends. There was a VIP party where he would be feted by Paul McCartney and Mick Jagger, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley, and more and more. "He instead took one last look around the scene of his triumph, then summoned a car and asked to be driven away from it. He wanted nothing more than to get as far from everyone and everything as it was possible to be." Plant headed out of town, and the car dropped him off coach outlet 50% sale at the Marathon Bar, an inauspicious looking Turkish restaurant on Chalk Farm Road. "As he sat there, collecting his thoughts, did he reflect on how far he had come, and how far he had journeyed?" asks Paul. "Upon the years of struggle when there was no money in his pocket and he sensed the dream that had driven him slipping from reach? "It had, all of it, carried him along. It had given him more than he could have dared ask for, and he had taken every last drop of it. And as he did so it had exacted from him a heavy and terrible price," adds Rees, referring to the death of Plant's son Karac and best friend John Bonham. Because, the book confirms, Robert Plant had harboured grave doubts about the big reunion and remains to this day coach outlet coupons urban reluctant to repeat it. Two previous attempts had been a disaster, one only fleeting and another for fun. First up had been Bob Geldof's Live Aid global jukebox on July 13, 1985, raising money for famine relief. Plant had been invited to take part with the Honeydrippers rhythm and blues band he set up after Zeppelin called it a day. As the hype surrounding the gig grew, and rock legends queued to sign up, Jimmy Page agreed to play, too. They thought they might do a few Zeppelin songs. John Paul Jones, initially uninvited a source of some bitterness found out what was going on. Although the band already had a bassist, he was belatedly added to the line up on keyboards. Chic's Tony Thompson was on drums but, in a PR stunt, Phil Collins decided to play both in Wembley and Philadelphia, flying Concorde to join what was now touted as a Zeppelin reunion. "The price of this gimmick was that Collins did not appear to have familiarised himself with Zeppelin's set," says Paul. "He sat dumbfounded through most of it. Even still, he fared better than either Plant or Page. "Looking like an ageing Club Med dandy in a lurid purple shirt and white slacks, Plant strutted and preened but his voice was strained, never quite hitting the notes. At a stroke he had turned himself into the very thing he'd spent the past five years running to avoid a faded reminder of former glories." Plant later admitted: "We virtually ruined the whole thing because we sounded so awful. I was hoarse and couldn't sing. Page was out of tune and couldn't hear his guitar.
Jonesey stood there serene as hell and the two drummers pounded away. That's why Zeppelin couldn't go on.".
