Robert Plant

How ace is his new material?
Heard him live on 6music today and just loved what was played. Very good, earthy ,world music sound to it.
Something that he has dabbled with lots over the years but this new stuff really has made me listen up when i hear it.
Also played a great set at Glastonbury this year.

I love RP me. I've only heard bits of his solo stuff including some good duets with Alison Krauss. I always feel even more enthused about music when I see him interviewed. He respects all music be it country, Indian, Blues, soul and the list never ends. Top man. He must be getting on a bit now.

Kidderminster's most famous son. Thought the album's he made with Alison Krauss were excellent. Forgiven him for Whole Lotta Love and Dazed and Confused now.

And that was the exact line Phillip used to woo the young Queen Elizabeth, FACT!
Sir Bulldog Craggwood

Saw him at the o2 (old Town and Country Club) in Leeds tonight.

Superb really and thats coming from someone who's a bit too young to be a fan

The band seemed miles better musicians than the Led Zep lads and Plant for 70 something had lost little of his charisma, command and energy

Great evening spoilt only by the drongos i had to stand among

Edited to say 66!!
Frazier Cranium

Did he do many Led Zepp's, SBC?

I bet he did Stairway to Heaven - everyone does that.

That reminded me of quote from Bad News, from Vim Fuego...

I could play "Stairway To Heaven" when I was 12. Jimmy Page didn't actually write it until he was 22. I think that says quite a lot.

Interesting - I'd always assumed I'd heard it in Spinal Tap.

I just tried playing Stairway to Heaven on the piano here.

If you think I'm bad on the guitar.........

I thought it was one from Spinal Tap's Nigel.

I couldn't remember the exact quote, so had a Google, and found I was wrong (according to IMDb, and others), though it appears to be a reasonably common mistake.

Tell you something for nowt, I fcking hate Stairway To Heaven, almost as much as most o the Bat Out of Hell album
fartcatcher

Most of the bands I hated when I was young I've gone back and listened to again, in case I had been a bit harsh.

In Led Zep's case I hadn't. A singer with a voice like a castrated howler monkey, tune free unending guitar solos and a drummer who sounds like his just kicked his kit down a flight of stairs. And fuck knows what John Paul Jones did.

Don's tin hat. Goes to hide behind sofa. Looks for passport.

In Spinal Tap Nigel laments to the director about a ballad he's been composing called 'Lick my Love Pump'. I fucking love that film me.

It's the lead-up that makes it:

[Nigel is playing a soft piece on the piano]

Marty DiBergi: It's very pretty.

Nigel Tufnel: Yeah, I've been fooling around with it for a few months.

Marty DiBergi: It's a bit of a departure from what you normally play.

Nigel Tufnel: It's part of a trilogy, a musical trilogy I'm working on in D minor which is the saddest of all keys, I find. People weep instantly when they hear it, and I don't know why.

Marty DiBergi: It's very nice.

Nigel Tufnel: You know, just simple lines intertwining, you know, very much like - I'm really influenced by Mozart and Bach, and it's sort of in between those, really. It's like a Mach piece, really. It's sort of...

Marty DiBergi: What do you call this?

Nigel Tufnel: Well, this piece is called "Lick My Love Pump".
