Plant was promoting his new solo album, MIGHTY ARRANGER, in Milan, Italy, and couldn't attend the prizegiving, where Led Zeppelin were presented with a Lifetime Achievement honour.
His decision to stay away upset Page and Jones, who did attend.
Plant admits he partly regrets his decision now, accepting it was a great opportunity to get back up onstage with his former bandmates.
He says, "I would have put my robes on and my crown, my sceptre... What a way to spend the weekend.
"It'd be nice to get together to see if we have anything to argue about."11/05/2005 21:22
