Robert Plant may have turned down the Led Zeppelin tour, but Sammy Hagar says he respects the way he did it.
In a recent interview with Howard Stern, John Bonham’s son, Jason Bonham, recalled how Plant told him, “What you know of your father is amazing. But what we said all those years ago, we would be idiotic to continue on and not stand with what we said. We’ve done this, we did the show, we don’t have to do it again. Let’s just leave it at that.”
Hagar added his own opinion, saying, “That’s a first-class way of saying it. ‘I’m not coming back.’ How many fighters, heavyweight champs, came back one too many times, all that stuff? We’re seeing so many people dying like flies in our business. … I’m looking around me, thinking there’s gotta be a time I’m not gonna do this anymore. I respect Robert so much for doing that. As much as I want to see Led Zeppelin more than you.”
