DVR Report | Robert Plant Treats Colbert To Joint & Two Songs

Former Led Zeppelin front man Robert Plant stopped by The Colbert Report last night before heading to Brooklyn Bowl for a midnight gig. Plant spoke with Stephen Colbert about his new album, Lullabye and… The Ceaseless Roar, how his rocktober has been going, whether there’s a time when the singer isn’t in “full Robert Plant-ness” and much more during a five-minute interview segment.

Early in the interview Plant revealed he has a gift for Colbert and whipped out what looks to be a joint. “What is that? I’m not…let’s find out what this is later, shall we? And for the purposes of my lawyer and the network, this is a cigarette,” Colbert said upon receiving the gift and then slipped it into his jacket pocket.
