Robert Plant Interview on Australia’s 60 Minutes TV show:

Robert Plant is appearing on a new season of 60 Minutes (Australia TV). It airs on Sunday February  17th, Channel Nine at 7:30 PM (Australia time). The interview was filmed on February 2.

Here’s the link to watch the complete interview (thanks Steve J)


Robert in attendance at Primrose Hill Community Library meeting:

This report via Ham & High:

The lead singer of rock band Led Zeppelin and author India Knight were among a packed crowd at a meeting to discuss the future of shops in Primrose Hill.  Primrose Hill Community Library was packed to capacity as around 90 shopkeepers and residents attended the meeting to discuss the future of shops in Regent’s Park Road, last Thursday. Ways to maintain the vibrancy of the shopping parade in a tough economic climate was top of the agenda, after recent rent increases are understood to have left many shops struggling to stay open.

As businesses have started to leave, shop units are being left vacant and the community feels something should be done.  Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant’s suggestion that a men’s clothing shop would be a valuable addition, was one of many contributions to the debate.

Phil Cowan, 46, owner of Primrose Hill Interiors, Regent’s Park Road, said: “Primrose Hill is not immune to the recession. If we want to keep our shops open, we need to reinvent our business association and broaden its remit.”

A survey revealed people were keen to turn one of the empty shops into a community-run store – perhaps a butchers or greengrocers. It was also suggested that “pop-up shops” should take residence in the empty units to brighten the area. None of the landlords of the empty properties attended.

Another meeting will be held next month.

    What a great interview, it what was funny as hell. There’s no way your gonna get a “sit down” interview with Robert, she knows it he knows it. She tried but Robert graciously struck her down almost over his knee… LoL. I must admit she is gorgeous and I’m sure Robert would agree. Peace

    Actually, although she looks a lot like her mom, he asked about the groupies Plant slept around with while his daughter Carmen and one of the grandkids were standing nearby. Pure class on her part.

  • Richard from Texas said:

    I agree with Lea. Although Plant comes across as a charming and charismatic interview subject, the interviewer (or the edited interview) doesn’t get off enough questions of substance, and she does seem like a tee-heeing fan. Did I really hear her ask Plant about sleeping with groupies with Plant’s ex standing nearby?!

    Regardless, thanks Dave for making the interview and the extra segment available (on a different post).

  • Lea said:

    Wow I must have missed something in that interview because I thought it was completely pointless. There was yet another opportunity to actually get some answers just wasted. Where was the info about the up and coming tour in Australia? The two second mention she did at the end after the interview wrapped? I wish he would do a sit down interview with either a male reporter or a female reporter who can hold it together enough between giggles to ask a question of relevance.

    Good interview on Aussie TV – interesting poignant words about Karac and a funny insight into Bonzo persuading him back after that huge tragedy. I think he’s teasing re 2014……
