On his most recent Digging Deep podcast, Robert Plant spoke of connecting with his long-gone family members: [“I’ve dreamt I’ve been back with old friends quite a lot in dreams — like John Bonham, my father, and my son, who left when he was five. And they’ve been magnificent moments of great relief. It seems that when I’m asleep sometimes I’ve been in a really great place — and now, I’ve got to get back to wherever it was, and I’m making my way back through these amazing landscapes and stuff to go back.’] SOUNDCUE (:25 OC: . . . to go back)
