Plant maintains that the only way to stay relevant to himself, let alone an audience, is to constantly be moving and growing artistically. “I like to dig deep with the people I’m around,” he said. “Wherever I might in whatever circumstances; and that’s not just based on being a singer — that’s based on living a life. I mean, I’m pretty much of a, kind of a, a kind of strange firework, all the way though my life. I’m whizzing around and I don’t know which way I’m going to spring next. It really was quite a sobering revelation, really, to find that everything that I left behind was what I really cherish.”
Released in February 2018 on DVD and digital video was ROBERT PLANT & THE SENSATIONAL SPACE SHIFTERS “Live At David Lynch’s Festival Of Disruption”. The eight-song performance was captured on October 8, 2016 at L.A.’s Ace Hotel Theatre as part of David Lynch‘s inaugural Festival Of Disruption, which raised money for The David Lynch Foundation.
