Robert Plant : "Led Zeppelin's Never Been About The Fans".

Robert Plant has not ruled out another reunion with Led Zeppelin - insisting it's the bureaucracy involved that puts him off the idea.

Zeppelin have been dogged by rumors of a world tour since they reformed for a one-off gig at the O2 in London last year (Dec07) - their first concert in 19 years.

But vocalist Plant, who is currently touring with bluegrass star Alison Krauss, has so far refused to agree to hit the road with the legendary group again.

And he insists it's not the idea of a reunion which he is opposed to - it's the paperwork that accompanies every live show.

He tells Britain's GQ magazine, "The endless paperwork was like nothing I've experienced before. I've kept every one of the e mails that were exchanged before the concert and I'm thinking of compiling them for a book, which I feel sure would be hailed as a sort of literary version of Spinal Tap (semi-fictional heavy metal band featured in spoof documentary This Is Spinal Tap).

"Led Zeppelin's never been about the fans. We've always been about four guys coming together to make thrilling, disturbing rock 'n' roll. On our own terms."
