On this week’s episode of Brian Johnson: A Life on the Road, Legendary AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson takes an excursion to North Wales where he explores a ruined castle with rock god Robert Plant, chatting about the vocalist’s love of American Blues, the creation of Led Zeppelin, and Plant’s acclaimed solo career and award-winning collaborations
In this first-look clip, Robert Plant looks back at Led Zeppelin’s founding in 1968.
“I suppose Cream, The Greatful Dead, the white blues thing was kickin’ in. And you had that great west coast thing going on with Jefferson Airplane and stuff. You had a sub-culture develop, and we kind of attached ourselves to that. We didn’t have any social statements to make. We weren’t visionaries, in that sense. But we were, still by our age, at the time, still part of that huge movement of energy.”
“I think for all of us, it was just serendipity that you could actually have four people… I mean me and Bonzo had played a lot together. Jimmy and John had been in various bands but they were session guys, and they were pretty well heeled, you know, pretty hot on the scene. But it didn’t matter to me and Bonzo, all we wanted to do was get a square meal.”

Next week, Johnson travels to see legendary The Who frontman Roger Daltrey on Sunday, Sept. 29 at 9pE.
