Considered as one of the most talented stars of the century and founder of legendary Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant, has shared the latest episode of his long-time going podcast series ‘Digging Deep’ and talked about his 40 plus years of career.
While talking about his musical career with Led Zeppelin, Robert confessed that he’s not okay with his earlier albums, before releasing ‘Fate of Nations’ which was the sixth studio album of Robert that was released in 1993.
The album was featuring Cutting Crew guitarist Kevin Scott MacMichael. It also was Plant’s latest solo album till he released Dreamland in 2002. According to Robert, it was the biggest turning point of his career and the earlier albums were just embarrassing experiences for him.
Here is what Robert said:
“Earlier on, I was embracing whatever I felt really moved high at the time, so the techno revolution in the ’80s is… We look back now in horror.
Or maybe we don’t look back in horror. Now we look back and go, ‘Geez, how did you actually manage to get your head around that sort of shit, Robert?’ And the answer is, ‘With great zest and a considerable amount of noise.”
“I mean, it’s very funny. But some of it worked really OK. I was embarrassed about it for a long time. Especially once I got to 1993 and Fate of Nations, which was a really big turning point for me.
The thing is, you don’t have any perspective at the time, you just joyously careen through another bunch of ideas and another combination of good spirits.”
