Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant has finally ruled out the band getting back together for a concert tour
Plant, 60, said he has moved on to other things and was getting too old for two-hour rock shows in giant arenas across the world.
But he said he was regularly in touch with guitarist Jimmy Page and they were still great friends.
Plant has been nominated for five Grammy awards for his Raising Sands album with American bluegrass singer Alsion Krauss.
He said: “I’m doing very well with Alison and I’m enjoying that.
“I still see Jimmy quite a lot and he’s very complimentary and supportive of what I’m doing.
“But we are in different places now and you have to go on to do different things.”
Plant was on stage yesterday being interviewed on BBC Radio Wales by actress Ruth Jones who plays Nessa in TV’s Gavin and Stacey.
The live show came from Barry, South Wales, where part of the cult comedy is set.
Plant agreed to do a rare live interview because he is such a huge fan of the show.
But when Ruth asked him about a Led Zep reunion Plant said: “Do you know how long it took me to climb up onto the stage here – and it’s only four steps!”
Plant delighted the crowd by praising Ruth Jones for her Nessa character.
He said: “I’d just like to say thanks for giving me so many laughs over the last couple of years.”
