If it hadn't come out of Robert Plant's mouth, I'd probably blow this off as just another Interwebs rumor. But Plant was featured on Sunday night's episode of Australia's "60 Minutes" and was grilled about Led Zeppelin doing more reunion shows and Plant had a surprising answer.
"We just wanted to play and see what it was like and be good once," said Plant. "Because we'd been bad so many times in the interim since John passed away; it was time to be good … and we were."
Plant has taken most of the heat for squelching a reunion in recent years.

Plant: "I'm not the bad guy."
Brown: "Well you are for all those Led Zeppelin fans who'd love you to say 'yes, we're reforming.'"
Plant: "Well, then you need to speak to the Capricorns ... 'cause I've got nothing to do in 2014."
