In the fourth episode of the podcast Digging Deep, Robert Plant discusses, “Like I’ve Never Been Gone”, a deep track found on Plant’s 1982 solo album.
About the album Plant says: “I needed a drummer that could kick ass. Phil Collins, his solo career had just taken it off … I think it was Face Value. Phil said that everything I do I’ve built on the influence of John Bonham, and I wanna play on your record. I said ‘you can’t play on this track because Cozy Powell is playing on it.’ Cozy we new very from those days around the Midlands. Like John, you could hear him yelling as he was playing.”
'Digging Deep, The Robert Plant Podcast' will launch on 3rd June, available on iTunes, Spotify, Acast, YouTube or wherever you get your podcasts: https://lnk.to/RPDiggingDeep

On his social media accounts, Plant explains,
Making records is a very personal experience. I was so ready to get away from that environment, then I was saying, lets get out of here. But then, now and again down the line, opening up some of the songs and looking back at ’em, I marvel at some of it.
Mostly wherever I am even now all these years later, I really wanna be there. I’m going to be picking out some songs from here and there along the way, mixing constant shifts and sound and intention. Men and women who encouraged and enlightened the themes and the stories.
A voice narration goes on to describe the show as, “the moments, people and places that have inspired some of his most treasured music.”
