Robert Plant, 72, has revealed that he’s prepared to share quite a bit of unreleased material upon his passing.
“I’ve told the kids when I kick the bucket, open it to the public free of charge — just to see how many silly things there were down the line from 1966 to now. It’s a journey,” he said on the most recent episode of his Digging Deep podcast.
It goes without saying that Plant is one of the most prolific and beloved rock songwriters of all time, and the prospect of a personal archive filled with pre-Led Zeppelin rarities and peak-fame recollections is enough to make any music fan drool.
Plant further explained the archive, saying, “All the adventures that I’ve ever had with music and tours, album releases, projects that didn’t actually get finished or whatever it is — I just put them, itemized them all, and put everything into some semblance of order.”
