Speaking in an interview with “Charlie Rose”, Led Zeppelin’s legend Robert Plant explained why Led Zeppelin ended after drummer John Bonham’s death. He said:
“There was a lot of romance about it, because it didn’t blow itself out of the water, it didn’t go on too long; it just stopped.
That was the deal when we got together in the beginning, that that would be it. If we couldn’t carry on as four of us, that would be it. When you’ve only got four people, it’s very difficult to start thinking about full-time replacements.”
He also talked about 50. anniversary of Led Zeppelin:
“It is true that in 1968, there was a collision of mind and the gifts. And so be it. But that was a long… thirty-seven years ago, that ceased.”
