's legendary front-man, Robert Plant was featured on Australia's '60 Minutes' this past weekend (17th) in which he discussed a variety of topics, including his new band, with reporter Tara Brown. 

In the hour long chat Plant opened up on his working-class roots, the formation and legacy of Led Zeppelin, his new band the Sensational Space Shifters and the Led Zepp's 2007 reunion at the Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert.

(via HenneMusic):

"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 also addressed the ongoing 'will they / won't they' rumour mill with regards to if Led Zeppelin will ever perform and record again,

"You know, the two other guys (Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones) are both Capricorns and they keep schtum (quiet); they don't say a word. But they are quite contained in their own worlds and they just leave it to me to do this (interviews)."

Brown: "…to be the bad guy"

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."
