Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant said in a new interview that he has recently seen more of Jimmy Page and said that it felt “like we were the brotherhood again.” Plant, Page and John Paul Jones spoke to Mojo Magazine for a cover story in its December 2021 edition that marks the fiftieth anniversary of the release of Led Zeppelin’s unnamed fourth album.

In the interview Plant said:
“I’ve seen a lot more of Jimmy lately. We recently saw a friend of ours who’s not doing so well, and it’s like we were the brotherhood again. I’m looking for more events like that.”
There is a huge possibility that Plant and Page visited former Led Zeppelin tour manager Richard Cole in hospital together. Plant was photographed visiting him earlier this year.
During the interview, Plant also discussed giving evidence alongside Page in Led Zeppelin’s 2016 copyright trial in the US over “Stairway To Heaven.”
Plant told Mojo Magazine:
“It was surreal. Mobile TV crews, SWAT teams under the building. But at least it gave Jimmy and I the opportunity to talk.”
Plant said of Page elsewhere in the interview when recalling the recording of Led Zeppelin’s fourth album:
“I have never experienced, and probably never will, being in the presence of such a great, eloquent player.”
Despite the changed relationship between Plant and Page, neither Page nor Jones said they plan to listen to Plant’s upcoming second album with Alison Krauss.
“I’m a bit curious, but I won’t buy it,” “I stream a lot of things but I don’t listen to rock’n’roll. I don’t use the internet,” Page said, “so I haven’t got anything to listen on.”
