Robert Plant has commented on heritage bands who stay together for decades, likening them to “hanging onto a life raft”.The musician is best known as the former frontman of Led Zeppelin, who split up in 1980 following the death of John Bonham.

The band has reunited several times since, most recently in 2007, but only for one-off gigs.Speaking to MOJO about his new album with Alison Krauss – called ‘Raise The Roof’ – Plant said: “The good thing about Alison and I is that we’re a couple of kindred spirits.

Most musicians form a band, then they stay in the band until it’s over – 20 years, 30 years, 50 years, whatever it is – and it starts to look sadly decrepit.
