Robert Plant and the Band of Joy

For all the 70s ballyhoo regarding Jimmy Page’s alleged dealings with the devil, it’s Robert Plant who still seems to shine like the “golden god” he declared himself to be over thirty years ago. With his solid post-Zeppelin career, from the doo-wopping Honey Drippers in the 80s, to his acclaimed Raising Sand with Alison Krauss to his latest project, the reuniting of Band of Joy, (who perform their own Grammy-nominated Americana as well as stripped-down, countrified versions of Zep hits) Plant continues to keep it unpredictably interesting. And his mesmorizing voice has aged as well as his physical self. Man, I’d hate to think that means poor ol’ Jimmy drank all that goat urine for nothing. With The North Mississippi Allstars.
