Robert Plant suggests resolution to The Beatles vs The Rolling Stones feud

Robert Plant believes he knows how The Beatles and The Rolling Stones can resolve their long-running feud. During a recent show in Los Angeles, Mick Jagger commented that “There are so many celebrities here tonight. Megan Fox is here, she’s lovely. Leonardo DiCaprio. Lady Gaga. Kirk Douglas. Paul McCartney is here, he’s going to help us – he’s going to join us in a blues cover later,”. Later, he addressed feud issues as well. Here is every detail you should know about Paul McCartney’s comment on the feud.

What has happened?

Now, Plant has toned down the rift between the two bands. He said in the interview, “One band is unbelievably luckily still playing in stadiums, and then the other band doesn’t exist,”. And added, “I don’t think there’s any fighting,” he told Rolling Stone in a new interview. “They’ve known each other since 1963. They love each other desperately.”
As for resolving this ongoing feud, he announced that “McCartney should just play bass with the Stones”.

Meanwhile, Plant has admitted that the recent legal challenge over ‘Stairway To Heaven’, Led Zeppelin‘s classic track was “unpleasant” and “unfortunate”.

Michael Skidmore, a trustee for the estate of Spirit guitarist Randy California, first filed a lawsuit against the British band in 2014 over the track. The two iconic groups have faced each other over the years, with the most recent dispute starting last month when Paul McCartney called the Stones a “blues cover band.” McCartney made similar comments about the Stones last year before Jagger joked that “there is obviously no competition” between the two groups.

Plant gently ridicules Eric Clapton’s vaccine criticism. “Good old Eric,” he says with a big laugh. “He didn’t like the jab — but he had the jab.”
Plant and Krauss reveal details of an abortive collaboration with Daniel Lanois circa 2010. “The deal was to maybe even think about writing stuff with him,” Plant says. “I think there are about six or seven ideas we pulled together.”

Krauss concedes that it’s hard sometimes to sing with Plant onstage. She emphasis on saying, “The part that wasn’t fun was that he’s singing so off the cuff all the time,” she adds, “It’s hard to harmonize if someone’s constantly in that state, which is magical if you’re not trying to harmonize, but if I’m trying to harmonize with it, it didn’t make it easy.”
Krauss has enjoyed rememberings of the success of O Brother, Where Art Thou? and its soundtrack. She said, “It showcased bluegrass music in such a beautiful way,” she says. “It was a really emotional thing.” She only really learned just how big a phenomenon it was when she shared a bill with veteran singer Norman Blake, on a tour sparked by the soundtrack. “He went out there to sing ‘Big Rock Candy Mountain,’ and the arena screams that came from him starting the show like that? I was blown away.”

The plant is mostly delighted with the ups and downs of his post-Zeppelin career. “I was always trying to escape the shadow of what had happened to me between 1968 and 1980,” he tells. “So I was trying so many different things just to expand myself without really worrying about taking along an audience that only wanted me to be on autopilot. I made good music and I made questionable music, but I did it all with a great flurry. And there’s only a minor embarrassment now, maybe perhaps a few dodgy haircuts. I mean, when you’re on maximum rotation on MTV, it’s just, how the hell did that happen? From the hammer of the gods to, um, Big Log.”

Plant says it wasn’t lenient singing the high notes in Zeppelin — and that the keys of the songs were based around Jimmy Page’s guitar playing, not his vocal range. “Quite often everything was in E because you got much more out of the bottom of the guitar,” he explains. “I should have gone to one of those castrati schools in Northern Italy trying to get it right.”
