Plant deflected blame for the band's dormancy on Austrailia's version of "60 Minutes," saying "[Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones] are Capricorns. They don't say a word. They're quite contained in their own worlds and they leave it to me," said Plant. "I'm not the bad guy . . . You need to see the Capricorns – I've got nothing to do in 2014."
The three combined for a one-off reunion in London in 2007, with Jason Bonham taking the place of his late father John on the drums.
Page and Jones were reportedly interested in touring afterwards but Plant was not, according to Rolling Stone. The tour was abandoned after Page and Jones decided not to come up with a Plant replacement.
In an interview with the magazine in November 2012, Page said the Plant "was busy" at the time.
