ROBERT PLANT Has No Plans To Write Autobiography

Robert Plant has no plans to write an autobiography, saying that his memories will remain "locked nicely between" his "two ever-growing ear holes."

The LED ZEPPELIN frontman, who released a new solo album, "Carry Fire", in October, dismissed the idea of writing a book during a recent interview with U.K.'s Classic Rock magazine. He said: "Where the fuck does this memoir shit come from? I just think the whole idea of us… Once upon a time, we were social deviants, pushed out to the corners of society, quite often body searched in the street by cops. I remember walking through Dearborn [part of the Detroit metropolitan area] with John Bonham in 1969, on a Sunday afternoon, when Detroit was in flames, and looking across the cityscape and seeing smoke and things like that, and some people went by in a big Lincoln Continental and they put the window down slowly and spat at us — because we were hippies. We were representing a challenge to the order. So do we want to chum up and cuddle up to the whole idea of going to a publisher and telling stories? I mean, what — who — for? Those stories are locked nicely between my two ever-growing ear holes. So fuck it. There's a lot in there, and that's where it's staying."

Although "Carry Fire" has received mostly positive reviews, fans of Plant's work in the late 1960s and 1970s are not leaving his shows disappointed, with plenty of LED ZEPPELIN songs being included in his recent performances.

The follow-up to 2014's "Lullaby And… The Ceaseless Roar", "Carry Fire" was produced by Plant in the west of England and Wales, at Top Cat studio in Box, Wiltshire with additional recordings at Real World and Rockfield studios.

Plant spoke frankly about the new songs, telling "PBS NewsHour": "Well, there's a lot of preparation and there's a lot of, I guess you would probably call it soul-searching to make sure, with time being so precious, that it's not a wasted journey... it's bridled. It's contained more. It's a good place to go, and it's a bit of a surprise."
