Some people think it’s cool that LED ZEPPELIN wrote lyrics about “Lord of the Rings” . . . but ROBERT PLANT doesn’t necessarily see it that way in retrospect.
He said some of his work was great, but he “missed the mark” with some of that stuff . . . quote, “My peer group were writing substantial pieces of social commentary, and I was willowing along the Welsh borders thinking about Gollum.
“I liked what I did, but now I look at it and go ‘Wooh, that was a bit iffy.’ But I do like ‘Stairway to Heaven’. I can look at it objectively. I can’t always get my head around it, but it does do something substantial.”
(It’s worth pointing out that “Stairway to Heaven” has withstood the test of time . . . for nearly 50 YEARS. So, he’s nitpicking himself a bit.)
