Plant had recently reiterated his lack of enthusiasm for reuniting Led Zeppelin after their one-off show in 2007, stating that there is "nothing worse than a bunch of jaded old farts."
And Alice Cooper, of similar "old fart" age, has criticised the singer for "playing folk music" and not getting back out on stage with his old bandmates.
He told the Palm Springs Boxing Examiner, "I go out on stage and say 'turn it up'. I never get tired of playing my songs."
"They are just standing there. What is so hard? Jimmy Page wants to do it. John Paul Jones wants to do it. And they got Bonham's son, who is a killer drummer. All they need is Robert Plant. But what is Robert Plant out there doing? Playing folk music! What is he doing?"
Perhaps Alice Cooper's persistence and love of performing throughout the latter years of his career is paying off. As previously reported, Cooper was announced as one of the 2011's inductees into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, alongside fellow newbies Neil Diamond and Tom Waits. Led Zeppelin however joined the illustrious list of inductees back in 1995.
