Robert Plante | Robert Plant turned to music in confinement
Robert Plant says the music kept him sane during the lockdown.
The Led Zeppelin legend explained how he turned to music to help him get through the pandemic, although he didn’t have any defined artists or songs that he still listened to.
Speaking on ‘Digging Deep: The Robert Plant Podcast’, he said: “It’s really interesting, yeah.
“Depending on my mood, I would go to – the mood was calling me music, so I would be very happy to listen to Geraci and say, ‘Oh my God this is crazy how do I get out of here?
“I keep looking at maps and talking about countries that no longer exist, that have changed names three times with different currencies … places there, I read more and more about places far away.”
The AGE-year-old singer explained as he returned to “the time in [his] life, ”he was drawn to the moment rather than the songs themselves.
He added: “I would associate myself, I think… with times in my life that had a really deep resonance, and I would go to those times.
“No particularly specific songs, but yes … and vocals too, mostly vocals. People who could really shape what they’re writing about without any restraint.”
He noted that he was not referring to charismatic and energetic performers like Little Richard, but rather a different way of conveying the emotion.
He said, “I don’t mean Little Richard, but I mean people who actually drop poignant, heartfelt stuff and they could sing it so that it’s almost no vocal performance or at the right time, that would be that amazing expression of it all. “
