Led Zeppelin’s long-time member and iconic musician, Robert Plant had a recent interview with Ultimate Classic Rock Nights and revealed his thougts on Stairway To Heaven after 48 years.
Yet Robert Plant still thinks that Stairway To Heaven is a great song, he stated that he can not relate to it anymore.
Here is what Robert told to UCR:
“Of course, it was a good song. The construction of the song, the actual musical construction is very, very good. It’s one of those moments that really can stand without a vocal – and, in fact, it will stand again without a vocal, I’m sure, because it’s a fine, fine piece of music.
Robert Plant continued the reason why he can’ relate to Stairway to Heaven.
Here is what he said:
“Lyrically, now, I can’t relate to it, because it was so long ago. … I would have no intention ever to write along those abstract lines anymore. I look at it and I tip my hat to it, and I think there are parts of it that are incredible.
The way that Jimmy Page took the music through, and the way that the drums reached almost climaxed and then continued. It’s a very beautiful piece. But lyrically, now, and even vocally, I go, ‘I’m not sure about that.”
