“It’s So Dull”

According to the Legendary frontman of Led Zeppelin Robert Plant.

The 69-year-old rocker slams the modern rock n’ roll as dull during an interview with The Project. The legend and one of the best rock vocalist of all-time complained about the state of the modern rock music. Calling it as “too sanitized.”

During the peak of Led Zeppelin’s fame in the mid-70s, the band became the symbol of what is to become of Rock n’ Roll. They were one of the first bands to popularize groupies, trashing hotel rooms and the rock and roll lifestyle.

Robert Plant admitted that he doesn’t remember too many wild stories on the road, because he wasn’t sure which stories belonged to him.

“I can’t tell you anything really because, not because I’ve got a book coming out, but because I don’t know whether I’m remembering what happened to me or what happened to somebody else – we just talked about it so much.”

He even admitted that he had somehow struggled with writing the lyrics of arguably the best song of all time, “Stairway To Heaven.”

I know it’s a long song and I also know that I have a little bit of trouble remembering the lyrics,” he said.

And when asked about what he thinks about the new band in Detroit, called Greta Van Fleet, he then said, “I hate him,” referring to Josh Kiszka, GVR’s frontman. Adding, “He borrowed [his voice] from somebody I know very well, but what are you going to do? At least he’s got a bit of style, because he’s said he based his whole style off Aerosmith,” while rolling his eyes.
