Okay – so you’re an internationally renowned rock singer and you’re being interviewed by one of the greatest tennis players in history. He asks you not about rock music … or even tennis … but the alleged occult predilections of your ex-band’s guitarist.
How would you answer?! Robert Plant did a short interview last Thursday night on CNBC talk show “McEnroe” hosted by tennis star John McEnroe. It was taped from the US Tennis Open where Robert Plant said he was there “To watch the tennis and shop for a record deal” (He did say he was kidding on the record deal). Dressed in jeans and a brownish shirt, Plant talked more about tennis than his music but joked about Page being a stamp collector (when McEnroe asked if Jimmy was really into the occult!).
