In what smacks of William Shatner's infamous "get a life" insult to "Star Trek" fans on a 1986 episode of "Saturday Night Live," Robert Plant is offering advice to fans clamoring for a Led Zepplin reunion: "Stop living in the past."
Plant made the barbed comment in an interview with Classic Rock magazine in response to a question regarding the possibility of a reunion. "Stop living in the past," he says. "Open your ears and your eyes. It’s not that difficult, is it?" Apparently, he doesn't care that much for the present, either. Asked about the ongoing lawsuit that accuses Zepplin of ripping off the melody to "Stairway to Heaven," Plant responded, "Are you referring to that ludicrous trial? I won’t go into that. Sorry, mate."
