I'm ebarrassed. who's that chick anyway? who thinks she's good ENOUGH to see a led zep song??? what the hell is wrong with robert?

She's Allison Krauss - a bluegrass singer. I guess Robert approached her about doing a project together. Their album (which doesn't include this song) has been a critical success. Since the O2 reunion concert, there have been rumours and grumblings about a Led Zep tour. Robert is the one poo-pooing it for the moment. He's on tour promoting this new album. (which my boss bought and said it put him to sleep). There are other performances by these two, of Led Zeppelin songs, on YouTube. Battle of Evermore, When The Levee Breaks, Hey Hey What Can I Do. Allison Krauss has a very pretty voice and sings wonderfully, but when I want to listen to Robert Plant, I want to hear raunchy Rock n' Roll. The tour includes a Toronto date in July. I won't buy tickets, but I will admit that I've entered contests to win tickets. If I win I'll go for sure. Not holding my breath - I have NO LUCK WHATSOEVER!

but wait...led zep DID do a reunion concert, right? are you talking TOUR tour?

Carrie™ said...

YES!! A TOUR tour. I was listening to a local rock station and the DJ said that after John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page played on stage with the Foo Fighters in early June, that Jimmy "has another Led Zeppelin hard-on" and is talking tour. He (Jimmy Page) said likely in 2009 because some of the band members are tied up in commitments. Hmmm....as far as I know, none of them are doing anything else right now so we know who he's talking about. (Robert - poke poke). Jason Bonham, who filled in for his dad at the reunion show, has said that if they ask him, he's more than willing to go. He's got a big Led Zep boner too.
Say lots of prayers TK and cross your fingers. I told Jim if tickets are $1000 I don't care, we're going. I'll sell some of my shit if I have to.
