Robert Plant is on the cover of the new issue of Uncut, dated September 2014 and out now.

In the expansive feature, we track Plant from the Welsh Marches to the nightclubs of Paris to hear about bee colonies, mountain lions, altercations with Moroccan traffic cops, Led Zeppelin, Bron-Yr-Aur and Plant’s extraordinary new solo album.

He also speaks about the current state of his relationship with Jimmy Page.

Earlier this year, Page dropped hints about wanting to play with Led Zeppelin again and said that he is ‘fed up’ with his former bandmate for delaying his plans.

In our interview, Plant expresses his confusion at Page’s actions and says: “I feel for the guy. He knows he’s got the headlines if he wants them. But I don’t know what he’s trying to do. So I feel slightly disappointed and baffled.”

“A couple of years ago, I said [to Jimmy Page], ‘If you’ve got anything acoustic, let me know. I’ll give it a whirl. It was hands across the water. But he walked away. Just walked away.

“But we couldn’t do anything proper. The weight of expectation is too great.”

The new Uncut is out now.
