Led Zeppelin's 'heavy' reunion

Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant has admitted the band's 2007 reunion at London's 02 reunion was ''too heavy'' for him, and he avoided partying with Liam and Noel Gallagher afterwards in favour of going for a few drinks on his own.

Robert Plant refused to party with Liam and Noel Gallagher after the Led Zeppelin reunion concert in 2007.

The two former Oasis stars went to the singer's dressing room after the sell-out show at London's 02 Arena to have a drink with him but he decided to snub their offer.

The 61-year-old vocalist - who performed alongside fellow surviving members Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, as well as the late John Bonham's son Jason at the gig - told Mojo magazine: "Twenty minutes after we finished, the Gallagher brothers were leaning on the door of my dressing room and one of them said, 'You're the real f***ing thing, you are.' I said, 'I've known that all down the line - but I think you need to go a little further round the corridor, next door on the left.' And I went.

"I ended up in the Marathon pub, drank four bottles of lager and half a bottle of vodka then went to bed. Because I had to get away from it. I'd done it. Had to go. It was too heavy."

In the past, the rocker has voiced his fears about the surviving members of Led Zeppelin reuniting for a full tour as he doesn't want to tarnish the group's legacy.

He said: "To visit old ground, it's a very incredibly delicate thing to do, and the disappointment that could be there once you commit to that and the comparisons to something that was basically fired by youth and a different kind of exuberance to now, its very hard to go back and meet that head on and do it justice."
