AUDIO: Robert Plant interviewed on BBC Radio 6 Music

Robert Plant was interviewed by BBC Radio 6 Music’s Radcliffe and Maconie this past week as he launched a fall tour of the UK.

Plant spoke about his latest album, “lullaby and...The Ceaseless Roar”, the personality of his band The Sensational Space Shifters, and other things during the appearance.

The Led Zeppelin singer kicked off a 13-date UK tour on November 9 in Newport, Wales.

Plant made major headlines recently when UK tabloid The Mirror published a report that the singer had allegedly turned down an $800 million (£500 million) offer from Virgin head Sir Richard Branson for a Led Zeppelin reunion tour.

Both Plant and Branson refuted the story, which has since been pulled from tabloid’s website.

The media outlet published a report claiming Branson offered a contract for 35 dates in three cities – London, Berlin and in New Jersey – with an option to do 45 additional shows in five venues.
