We haven’t categorized ourselves. And I don’t think we’ve thrown ourselves at the public as much as a lot of other people who say they haven’t—we don’t put ourselves in the way of glory. But three years is such a short time to start making any grand assessment. We’ve had the opportunity to be superduper incredible stars, and we could have lived on that much more than we have done, but I think it’s just a case of holding back all the time, because if you take the reins that are given to you, you end up destroying yourself—overdoing it, over playing it, over living it, and suddenly finding out that the things from your past don’t fit in at all with what you’re doing now. Therefore it’s much better for me to go home and be as I have been for years and years and years, than make some new being out of myself… —Robert Plant (Rock Magazine, August 1971)

Robert Plant with the caveman look he adopted for Zeppelin’s Return to the Club tour of March 1971.

This was Zep’s attempt to return to their grass roots. The goal was to reconnect with fans , like playing venues similar to when the band first formed , and charging the same low ticket prices. It was a gesture to thank their fans. They also road tested songs from their upcoming LZ IV album on this tour.

Jimmy Page’s Chopin Prelude No.4 (Arms Concert NY 1983)

I know Page isn’t at his best health wise here but I still love this. I feel that there’s so much emotion in his playing
