David Coverdale wants to apologize to Robert Plant for negative things he said 20 years ago.
In 1993, Jimmy Page teamed up with the Whitesnake frontman for an album and tour as Coverdale-Page. That led to a war of words between Coverdale and Robert Plant, with the Led Zeppelin singer calling him “David Cover-version." And Coverdale did not bite his tongue, saying, “There's certainly no love lost between myself and Robert… I wouldn't send him cat food if he was starving."
Two decades later, Coverdale regrets those remarks. He says he recently saw Page and said, “When you speak to Robert, offer my sincere regrets for any negative things I've ever said, which were mostly defensive. I hold him in the highest esteem as a human being, and as an artist, and I really would like to, you know, sit down, buy him a drink, shake hands
and say, 'I'm really sorry,’ you know, ‘Can we be friends again?'”
