Robert Plant's last concert with The Band Of Joy

The former Led Zeppelin frontman ended a 13 month world tour with Band of Joy, his group for his most recent album, with a powerful 90-minute show at the Big Chill concert at Eastnor Castle Deer Park in Herefordshire.
Backed by the group he called “just good looking old folk”, Plant was emotional about the group’s end but this did not stop him joking with the crowd.
Mixing Led Zeppelin classics like Black Dog with songs from Band of Joy’s self-titled album, Plant was close enough geographically to his Black Country roots that he incorporated them into the show.
Lifelong Wolves fan Plant reatedly made quips about his love for Wolves, even presenting band member Patty Griffin with a Molineux memento.
He joked: “It’s a bit cold so on behalf of the British weather system I present you with a Wolverhampton Wanderers hot water bottle.”
American singer Griffin had obviously learnt football banter from Plant as she held the gift aloft and shouted: “Who are ya?”
The Wolves jokes continued as Plant introduced guitarist Darrell Scott.
“America unlike Wolverhampton does not have much in the way of soccer but it does produce great musicians like Darrell,” joked Plant.
The singer also waxed lyrical about the Herefordshire country setting for the concert, before adding: “It’s only 45 minutes to get home, too.”
Plant described the show as the “grand finale” for Band of Joy, admitting it was “very emotional for us” to end their time together for what is likely to be a one-off collaboration.
“It’s been 13 months and everyone’s got things to do,” he joked. “Like laundry and making amends.”
The band finished on a high, showing their musicianship and close rapport on Band of Joy tracks like House of Cards and Angel Dance.
But the biggest cheers were for the band’s country rock versions of Led Zeppelin classics, including Houses of the Holy and a superb rendition of Misty Mountain Hop.
Plant’s voice was flawless throughout the show but he became most animated when recreating the songs which have defined his career for over four decades.
The highlight of the show was an epic version of Ramble On, complete with a breathtaking banjo solo in place of the original Jimmy Page guitar playing.
Leaving the stage for the final time, Plant told his bandmates: “It’s a fond farewell. Farewell my friends.”
He then turned to the crowd for a final football call: “Who are ya?”

Robert Plant 2011 Ukraine live

Speech by Robert Plant in Kiev, expected for months. And finally the last day in July it happened! Most of the gathered audience expected to hear good old songs Led Zeppelin. Hope the fans come true - but not quite. From the repertoire of "Zeppelin" Plant sang only four songs, but pretty modified to the tune of country music. However, we can not say that the public was dissatisfied.
To say that the concert brought together many people - to say nothing, the hall was packed to capacity. And even after the concert, at the entrance to the Palace of Culture "Ukraine" have continued to crowd people looking for "extra ticket." Moreover, contingent gathered enough raznoshersty - to the speech came the people who listened to Led Zeppelin as a young man "secretly," the young, which is hoisted on to the music of parents and, of course, the entire elite of Kiev. In the hall you could see the musicians of "BB", Vladimir Bebeshko and many others. By the way, these fans were not too lazy to come from the Crimea and other parts of Ukraine, only to see their "god."
"I was at one time on Led Zeppelin's parents" hoisted. "Since this is my favorite band. I have no friends in Kiev, but for the sake of Plante and you can fly to the moon," - said "The city is" one of the most ardent fans of the legendary rock Executive Michael
Percussionist, in all probability, very much.
First appeared on the stage the musicians of the American North Mississippi Allstars, which is not something that warmed room, but simply brought to the boiling point. The audience went into raptures of incendiary blues motifs. In addition to great music filling the guitarist has pleased the public a variety of guitars - from the classic to a variety of bizarre shapes. And then the musicians performed one of their ballads in acoustics.
Musicians brought with them a number of unusual guitars.
And performed an acoustic ballad.
By the way, the musicians paid attention to the tragedy in Luhansk region - the concert was marked by a moment of silence, which, incidentally, was all but two of intervention. First, before performing the first group, and then before the performance of the Robert Plant.
Speech Plant began with a moment of silence.
"I am delighted to be here, but I am saddened by the events in the Lugansk region" - said the legendary vocalist Robert Plant for the first time, appearing on stage.
After that performance itself began. Literally from the first chords, the audience is already prepared joyfully welcomed their idol. To say there is not,  a little hoarse, so recognizable.
From the first notes of a musician began with a reception  microphone, elegantly crossing his legs in the manner of Mick Jagger.
Literally from the first chords started to shake a leg with a musician stand microphone
Robert Plant sang country music singer Patty Griffin.
It is worth noting the composition Monkey, which by its mystical sound did not leave anyone indifferent. Under the melodious voices of chords Robert Plant and country singer Patty Griffin sounded so fascinating, that reigned in the hall of silence, and the audience it was difficult to remove from the scene views.
In addition, the band performed two, already traditional, songs dedicated to the "Lord of the Rings."
By the way, the program is in full compliance with Kiev speech Band of Joy in Moscow, the concert was over, even under the same song. Bidding farewell to the hall, after supposedly the last song, which has led Room to a complete delight, the band came out for an encore. At this point the fans did not stop anything - neither angry security guard, nor the audience shouted, "Get thee to pass." The last two songs sang in chorus room with the musicians, standing, dancing.
Despite the fact that Plant had aged, he looks very much even good!
After two encores of songs performed by Robert Plant thanked the audience, and disappeared backstage. Many continued to be applauded, the audience could not believe that this was indeed the final chord, and the musicians will not return to the scene.
Even sings bass.
Robert Plant also made it possible for team members to present their solo numbers.

Three school Rock, one of the shared Passion

> >

Building documentary music "can not be Get Loud" has never been easier. The three guitarists share the soundstage to the conversation about making music: the instruments, ideas, methods, ambitions, memories and inspirations.
Dan Steinberg/Associated PressJack White uniformly Blues during hip hop era.  ... when edge, above the law, deliberately rejected blues and reconsidered effects such as echo and reverb.
These guitarists are happen paradigm klamkomanetkami for different generations: Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, the edge of U2 and Jack White, White Stripes, the Raconteurs and the Dead Weather. And their guitars are handy for those moments when you play is better than explaining.
"It might Get Loud," a film by Sony Pictures Classics, which opens Friday in New York City and Los Angeles, focuses on the guitar as a musician and voice and the Communion of participants of those three Find their instruments. As documentary music is oddity: more associative than linear, more impressionistic than exhaustive.
There is a history of the guitar, or instructions, although musicians finds sequence to watch closely, as well as action by the five minutes Mr. Page, which says, his music is filled with "light and shadow", showing what he means by "Ramble On" lone guitar, all its anti-aliasing delicacy and aggression. "It might Get Loud ' strzykow to the biography, but it is mainly about the guitar as a hardware node, and the ability to: its practical mystique.
"The thing that makes the movie different is not what you have, but what was not," said its Director, Davis Guggenheim, by telephone from Bethesda, Md. "I'm not talking ex-girlfriends or band or rock critics. There is an American film analysis. This is not a movie that tries to list anything. The Film is about the path. I want to know how they wrote these songs. These guys are trying to find their voice, and how they do this? "
Guitarists, the meetings of the Summit, as Mr. Guggenheim called it, is kind of a serious discussion of aesthetic, which travel the stars rock rarely have the time to experience, backstage or elsewhere. Time before trade includes cameras and learn one other song and find common ground or civilly does not agree with the concept such as the use and misuse of technology.
"Attitude-is what we are talking about in the context of the entire documentation for the application of attitude," Mr. Page said by telephone from his home near London. "Simply is or is not. Is honest or not.
The collection is part of the jam session, part of the Symposium, part of the encounter group and part of the espionage. On the way to the meeting Mr. White grins and says he is hoping to trick them into teaching me all their tricks. "
In the scene telling Mr. Page suddenly starts playing the riff from Led Zeppelin's "Whole lotta Love" and the other two guitarists approach him and watch wide-eyed, such as fans, they were once teenage rock and they still are geeks, guitars.
"That is one of the Great guitar riffs from rock 'n' roll," the edge of the said by telephone from his home in southern France. "I as a child, listened to Led Zeppelin and tried to think of what he is doing? It was just wonderful to actually see it and immediately play it again. "
Or try to at least. In accordance with Mr. hand, the majority of guitarists do not play a "Whole lotta Love", because it was originally done; Open the string d adds some howl from chord addresses. "Do you think was the most simple riff, but it is not," he said.
The three guitarists were canny choice, picked for the contrast. Led Zeppelin transmuted blues electric to volatile hard rock and delved into the modes of Celtic and Middle Eastern countries; counterfeit also version of 1970s arena Rock, with all its indulgences. Until U2 had its start in 1976, "was really a time in music was changes in marine and on methods," he said. "It was with the old — who was Led Zeppelin, among dozens of other groups — and new, who was the Clash and Krautrock."
There is still a gap generation Rock before and after punk. In the film, as edge teaches "I Will Follow" two guitarists, Mr. page is doubtful change of chord, question, "are you sure?" The edge recalled: "go immediately he offended his ear. It will definitely not have gone there. "
Edge approach to guitar deliberately rejected the Blues and become inherent effects such as echo and reverb. In one scene a riff from "Elevation," ricocheting all around the beat, then laughingly off effects to show that what he actually plays a few chords of the wan. "What I'm listening to" is of secondary importance to what is coming from the speakers, "he said.

At the beginning of the year: Rick Moody




Rick Moody Took to reviewing a biography of Led Zeppelin was unavoidable/flashback to the 70s power ballads.

"Most of us now have heard" Stairway to Heaven "so many times we'd rather die than hear it again," he says in his review. The upside? "I believe My calls the idea is that almost nobody knows as much about some of this music as I do," Moody's said in an e-mail message. "I recognize in some days, that this cannot be so, but still kind of want to believe it. Reading rock 'n' roll books, which are one of my few vices, literary, allows me to muscle up on my rock 'n' roll points in a game of trivia big rock in the sky. When the "Led Zeppelin IV" was released, and was at the age of exact: only in the midst of adolescence. "

"I would be lying if they do not allow the turning point was the dread" Stairway to Heaven "," he added. "From there, and was with them, even if they were dreadful, or off-the-cuff, which they occasionally. I went far afield and ultimately more punk rock than classic rock was moved, and then more moved by jazz and experimental music than punk, but once you love the sound of the drum and the impact of the rhythm section (guitar), you can simply not be totally let it go. Sounds like certainty. "

Led Zeppelin, the Gods of Rock on the blue Staircase

> >
> >

Young rock enthusiasts of the 21st century, those who listen to music on little thing shiny with headphones and read only on the LCD, come near and us Your grandparents are tell you long ago time when men from Gibsons were errant Knights of landstriding the stages, shrouded in mist, soloing in Great length! What is this? I really don't know what Led Zeppelin is or was? I never read this salacious earlier biography, Stephen Davis ' Hammer of the Gods "? Well have a thread for you. Or at least this wall does, this fellow Mick from England, who has also written or co-written the definitive biographies of Ozzy, Bono and Iron Maiden. Past recalls this hot session guitarist named Jimmy Page kills some time with the Yardbirds ("Shapes of things", etc.) until he decides he can do better by assembling the new Yardbirds — except that he is unable to lure away, who's rhythm sectionwho would devoutly theft or Steve Marriott of the Small Faces, the singer of Note. Instead, settlements on several country yokels, Robert Plant and John Bonham, vocals and drums, respectively, and another slightly frustrated session dude, John Paul Jones, who plays bass. This page is most happy Bonham, which hits drums, as if he seeks to affect the seismic activity in the British Isles. Singer, who is very good looking, he is not sure. The parties do not pay much attention to Bass at all.
The band performs its first concert in weeks of its initial time attempt and books in the studio not long after. Mainly they borrow their material, walls, which means they take the works of other people and changed very little. If you have been literature, rock, young enthusiasts, these songs would have been to an instance of plagiarism, but since this narrative takes place not long after the folk Revival, and some of these songs were traditional, accepted Zeppelin from earlier pieces of steel, the band somehow, at least initially, rises to change a few lines and giving the song a new title — "Black Mountain Side" instead of "Black Water Side" and so on. Turns out that many of the things that Led Zeppelin was "borrowed" one degree or another, including "Dazed and confused," "Whole lotta Love", "when the Levee Breaks", and even (yikes!) its largest, the most gargantuan hit song entitled "Stairway to Heaven" that most of us now have heard so many times we would die rather than hear it again. Some people, in accordance with Mick Wall, believe guitar opening line "Stairway" were filched from the band Spirit.
Regardless of the composition of the deficits is the chemistry of the elusive Zeppelin band and so do some of the subsequent albums that sell really shocking number of copies, tens of millions of albums, and between the United States to visit and whether the really awful lot, morally offensive things to young womenwho offer each other until delectation. We used to think of young enthusiasts, rock that behavior is somehow was slightly explicable, and this is the difference between this book about Led Zeppelin and earlier books. For example: contained in this agreement is the famous story of a groupie, and the shark, which has been dealt with elsewhere at some length. This bit of lore is now so unsettle and so repellent that you never want to listen to the band again. Or whether the team issues demurrals groupie to convince You otherwise. (Robert Plant: ' The thing people forget when they tut-tut about things is to laugh, we had. People tend to look back on the team as the strength of this dark spread its wings when we were just young guys having a good time. The main thing I remember most about these days now is laughter. ")
And then there is Aleister Crowley as part of the story. Then you can see, people have their alternative spiritual systems. This inspired them to create, I believe, and so this guy, he went in search and emerged with a very recondite backwater philosophical. He was in the necromancer, Crowley. They were as Crowley program in work exactly? Wall, probably the very best and most cogently argued section of its account (often manages to feel rushed and repeated elsewhere), contain much on exactly what in Crowley Ordo Templi Orientis stood, among which was, "magickal moving acts (the adoration of the Phallus as the equivalent of the microcosmic of the Sun)" and "masturbatory or autosexual techniques (hereinafter referred to as the lesser work of Sol)".
Weird symbols with which the band adorned its fourth album? It was the influence on Crowley pictograms, that word sort "ZoSo", which in the bedroom of pupils school, we believed it was some kind of vague album title. In fact, there seems to be a reference to 666 Crowley company, or is what thought Wall, and is very own page icon. Even "Stairway to Heaven," hit the aforementioned monster, which was later covered by Dolly Parton, was not free from their pictures Crowley-esque (ascending to light is a Luciferian conceit), while Robert Plant, singer-songwriter, he wrote, not parties.
Of course, there were drugs in the bang! Perhaps in connection with them, the effective period of Led Zeppelin was short. In view of the walls only lasted from 1968 to 1975. By then neglected bassist already attempted to resign once, and drummer, who used to get so violently homesick Tour, which was going to throw to rethink guns window and pull on people started compensating for his pain by drinking a truly large amounts. After 1975, curse of Led Zeppelin (meted out, in particular by Kenneth Anger, another disciple of Crowley, after he was ejected from the residence) entered into force and was in a car accident and then died in awful his son, and then the party dwindled for a prolonged period of heroin. Finally, John Bonham was able to shorten his unhappiness once and for all by using the equivalent of 40 shots of alcohol in one day, of which says: "it is, it wasn't new to us see Bonzo drink and pass. I knew that many people who used to do this. Perhaps this time it may ring alarm bells. However, in those days the norm under the sort of people who knew. " After the death of his "other members of the disbanded.
The new novel, The four fingers of death, Rick Moody s will be published in July.

Strong unity and Dueling Flaxen locks




Michael Falco for The New York TimesAlison Krauss and Robert Plant performed at the WaMu Theater at Madison Square Garden.

The date on the "add the sand" (Rounder), spooky album beautiful issue year Robert Plant and Alison Krauss tilt toward each other from different vantage points: a dazzling bluegrass coolly plaintive (his) and a heat blistered arena rock (his) own scouted out material with producer T Bone Burnett mines deep dark boundaries of Americana quite familiar, but two of spring rain from chemical contrast. Period of coexistence, even the most energetic, colorful fruitful media.

Mr. and Ms. Krauss almost to the point the WaMu Theater at Madison Square Garden as the first of two Saturday concerts have each taken over from opposite wings as predators stalking like cartoon gait rhythm of their parallel in the "Rich girls," a throwback to the open R&B with non-symmetry album. In its height and Don Black, and in her flaxen manes.

What loosened and quickened music next up was "leave my woman alone a spunky Ray Charles admonition by Ms. Krauss grabbed her fiddle and sang through his Plant bracingly groove has two steps and then came" classic Black Dog Led Zeppelin with his old band Plant are arranged in a minor key for banjo, bass and guitar is not menacing, but would not vote, particularly as both singer voice their arced. ready to meet "before the scream video instrumental.

"Welcome to Revue sand added Mr. Plant stated that after the actual song summary based on this tour, while undeniably from the album Welcome to the liberties using repertory and tone, Mr. Burnett leading circle of hotels including drummer Jay Bellerose and guitarist Buddy Miller kept the momentum with lively. In the list to appear. Change from night to night, which is not recommended without imagination, so much to the sturdy formula works mightily to judge. By the results of Tuesday.

As a revue tour supports their strengths in a way that not headliners "sand" to have two more Led Zeppelin tune each powerhouse "Black Country woman" was the band expand each spur emotions in the lyrics and subsiding, till the next angry waves.

"Battle of Evermore" is good because the drone of Celtic (sound is far removed from Appalachia) and the women's section (Ms. Krauss sings grippingly) but quieter and even in some songs from the album "Add sand" Mr. Plant are push rewardingly: "Nothin" melancholy Townes Van Zandt met him as he ages caterwauling.

The same music just played a little slower

Led Zeppelin performed at the O2 Arena in London on Monday and left John Paul Jones, Jason Bonham on drums Robert Plant and Jimmy Page band-after the death of John Bonham in 1980, photos more >.
Some rock band LONDON — supple tempos of them when they make their decade old music after the fact. Play fast is a type of armor: refutation. Real simple's age — unregainable enthusiasm and synapsids lost then all collectively — and block the band heavy lessened of cultural importance.
But Led Zeppelin delay of interruption to little O2 arena here on Monday. In a full concert of the first set but 1980 — by John Bonham, who died last year, but with the. His men into a natural substitute Jason — the band found much older in tempos in power that more graceful than on the old save cash. The speed of music ran near the Group's third Studio record, or slow the "good easy" frosted winter time mountain Hop "and" whole Lotta Love "was confident cruises" Dazed and confused "crawled the glorious epoch.
All back to the blues that completely decomposed is a good start and Led Zeppelin with the idea of the half. Singer Robert Plant's band doesn't want you to remember: he suggests "Trampled under foot" by describing a Robert Johnson "Terraplane Blues" and mentions Blind Willie cho nasan is the inspiration for "who's fault but mine (aside from the band that 10 minutes each in two luxuriant blues and other songs from the catalog of the latter:" because I love you "and" in my time of Dying).
Ahmet Ertegun at the concert is dedicated enough. Sure he has of the centrality of black American music under culture. Signed, Mr. Ertegun, who died last year Led Zeppelin to Atlantic records. Displays the edit, which is useful for Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund, which will offer music education scholarship to study with the University in the United States. English and Turkish homeland of him.
By the end of more than two-hour show of Zeppelin it, hard to remember someone on the list, but the music industry was preceded by Bill Wyman the dented Prefecture shows the Rhythm Kings — and good with blues timey singer Paolo Nutini as well, and Albert Lee, including a few songs each, with Paul Rodgers (of free and bad company) and foreigners revolving — all recorded for Atlantic under Mr. Ertegun.
With the kind of calmness about Led Zeppelin theme it was well rehearsed the same thing: planning and finance, operating since April under. Band members wore black clothes instead of their most wardrobes candy colors, Mick Jagger, Mr. Unlike old Plant — the life of the original 51 members — not walk and gesture like girls that exciting anymore. Some of the top of his voice, but except for one tried and failed to note in "stairway to heaven" ("a walk to all la-dy that we know ..."), He found other melodic path to suit him. He trusted. He has a good reputation.
Not for Jimmy Page, his guitar solos as articulated by, and that they used to be, but only drove home the point that they are always minor riffs that Monday is enormous bitter ' (he did produce a bow violin for his solo on "dazed and confused" during great music spooky global)
John Paul Jones bass line have lost little in the acoustics of the Hall — like all O2 Arena location such as 22000-seat rough on low frequency — but he carefully in your pocket with Jason Bonham when he could not be cached played keyboard on "mu" and "no quarter" and he is ready to do some other pedal bass with his feet secured with groove that far behind the pace.
And what of Jason Bonham, the big question of what — there is no way to prove this, but let's just rounding it off — Reunion rock projected in age full of them? He is an expert in the rhythm of his father. Encyclopedia of variation of them all, in all existing and also some small areas where he has been adding a tattoo. He stuck with the sound and feel of the original Smacks of snare drum does not have a single timbre, sound matched coarse reverberant but is present in two hours and some sound problems gradually corrected. You find yourself not worrying about it anymore, it all works.
Led Zeppelin has semi-reunited a few times in the past with success, not so much: short problem sets of Live Aid in 1985, and Atlantic records at the 40 anniversary concert in 1988, but this is a coalition that band with investing, although the fact that there is no plan for tourism in the future. Among the 16 songs is one has never played live before: "For Your Life from the album" presence "
To dance in the Hall that was extreme and genuine roars crowd during encores. ravenous at the end of it all is a member of the original three then knelt before the bend, Mr. Bonham and genuflected.

"Band of joy," project Solo of Robert Plant

"I suddenly felt very free and liberated," Mr. Plant said by telephone at his home in England, near the Welsh border. "The time was open ended, with a vast horizon, and this is how I used to feel the music.". This great weight fell away from me and I thought: "I could be 17 here." It took me back to how I felt when I was in the band of joy. »
Inspired by this emotion and the remarkable ensemble of musicians he worked with (led by guitarist and co-producer Buddy Miller and Patty Griffin singer), Mr. Plant decided to the title of this album "Band of Joy"."," after the group in which he and drummer John Bonham played prior to the formation of Led Zeppelin in 1968. With a laugh, Mr. Plant, 62, described "wonderful, crazy, incendiary quality this band," saying: "it has been constantly implode in internal and external." We were so frustrated and so hungry, but it was great. »
The creation of the "band of Joy" album, which was released on Rounder Records on September 14, was not quite so chaotic, although he did need some twists and turns along the way. (The group will perform at the Bowery Ballroom Sunday.) After the unexpected success of "raising sand", which won a Grammy Award 2009 as the album of the year, the Plant of Mr. and Mrs. Krauss has attempted to record a follow-up. This in itself was a little surprise, because the solo career of Mr. plant he saw strive to avoid repeating himself, venturing down avenues such as rockabilly, folk and music of the Middle East.
"We cut lot with Alison," he said, "and we have spent enough time to know that we did not just not the right equipment." We had such great output with "raising sand", he had such joy and humour and reverie, and we were not hitting in the same light. »
After these sessions, Mr. Plant called Mr. Miller, who had been in the "Raising Sand" band tour and asked if he would assemble musicians for a solo project. "I have really spent much time trying to talk about ending the record with Alison," said Mr. Miller. "I thought there are magical moments there."
What he heard Mr. Plant, however, was that he wanted to start from scratch and try something more daring. "I spent three years searching around, how to exploit the search for clues and collect songs that are deep enough", said Mr. Plant.
It gathered dozens of songs that he was interested in recording, ranging from the indie rock to traditional spirituals. Mr. Miller, with the feeling that he needed to musicians who "would be able to travel to where the music takes," assembled a small band with multi-instrumentalist Darrell Scott, bassist Byron House and drummer Marco Giovino.
"The musicality of these guys is almost frightening," said Mr. Plant. "Sing with them down the rigging with a knife in my teeth, I just try to off the coast with some experiments." Sometimes I think I should just be helping restoration. »
Always, he believed that he lacked something, and he calls Mrs. Griffin, a famous singer-songwriter and a frequent collaborator with Mr. Miller. "He told me that he felt as he had not completed the folder again, and it needed a few spices," she said.
What he wanted, however, was something very specific and very different from the dynamics of concessions he shared with Ms. Krauss. Ms. Griffin stated that its role was "more landscape there, more like a cello or a flute.". Mr. Plant called "the sidekick serene, almost confused."
Mr. Miller and Ms. Griffin described the sound of "band of Joy" as darker than that of "raising sand." With two songs from the catalog of the band of Minnesota Low spare, intense and songs by Los Lobos, Richard Thompson, Townes Van Zandt alongside Doo - wop numbers and spiritual, the disk is a testament to plant for its liberal design eclectic tastes of music American roots.
The paper "band of Joy" may seem a bit like a territory back to familiar, but the performances are always surprising. You can't Buy My Love "is a back-porch rocker popping finger, while"The Only Sound that Matters,"offers an introspective meditation on the complications of love." Between the calibre of musicians, the ambitious material and plant of Mr. voice (his signature banshee wail modulated to attack more altered, expressive, Mr. Miller compared to jazz singing), the album - true to its title - really feels like a band effort.
Mr. Plant stated that the sensation of records reminds him "that another band," as he refers sometimes to Led Zeppelin.
