Robert Plant can’t relate to “Stairway to Heaven”

It’s time to come to terms with the fact that ROBERT PLANT is just too old to rock and roll.  In a recent interview, he admitted that he can’t even relate to “Stairway to Heaven” anymore. 

For the record, he considers it a good song with, quote, “very, very good musical construction.”  It’s his lyrics that turn him off.

He says, quote, “Lyrically, now, I can’t relate to it, because it was so long ago . . . I would have no intention ever to write along those abstract lines anymore.  I look at it and I tip my hat to it, and I think there are parts of it that are incredible.

“The way that Jimmy [Page] took the music through, and the way that the drums almost climaxed and then continued . . . It’s a very beautiful piece.  But lyrically, now, and even vocally, I go, ‘I’m not sure about that.'”
