Robert Plant Slams Black Sabbath

Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant recently told Canadian radio that he's never liked Black Sabbath and claims they're just as irrelevant now as they were back in the late 60's.
It's documented that Black Sabbath shared the same rehearsal space with Led Zeppelin in late 1960 and that Sabbath drummer Bill Ward has said before that the Zep would interfere with their jam time and "come in and interrupt us," said Ward.
Plant has fired back, saying Sabbath is no more relevant than the guy who sang the tearjerker hit "Honey" and that Zep drummer John Bonham would tell Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi that they were no good. When asked about Black Sabbath Plant responded saying,
“Who? They’ll go a long way and they’ll influence a lot of people in Seattle. Lovely, great, yeah. And what would you do without Bobby Goldsboro as well?" said Plant.
He then went on to reveal he doesn't use an Ipod and dislikes a bunch of other things that you can check out below.
“Up there on the Pantheon there are no Ipods. I don’t use an Ipod – I have two decks, crossfaded, and sometimes I just DJ for myself,” said Plant.
