    At this point members of Led Zepp have done almost every New York based shows with the
    notable exception of The Howard Stern Show

    last night it was Plant on the Colbert Report

    Last night, before his midnight headlining show at New York's Brooklyn Bowl, Robert Plant stopped by The Colbert Report to play some songs from his new album lullaby and...The Ceaseless Roar. Though he's clearly taken a page out of Mariah Carey's book when it comes to naming albums, the Led Zeppelin icon kept things much less pretentious with his entertaining, high-spirited takes on "Little Maggie" (above) and "Rainbow" (below) with the help of his band, the Sensational Space Shifters.

    During his interview, the two got surprisingly handsy with the legendary singer's, uh, posterior (seriously, when will the Summer of Ass end?), and then Plant handed Colbert something that looked awfully like a joint. It's below too, and certainly worth watching

    I've heard Howard scream the intro to Immigrant Song for decades, it's enough for me.

    Someone should point this out to Bob Lefsetz. He thinks everybody is "clamoring" to be on the Stern show because of Howard's power, especially music acts who never appear on late night shows.

    I get the album title.

    The songs are like lullabys and the roar is people snoring through them.

    The fucking cable company turned off Comedy Central. I watched it first thing this morning. Howard would never make it through an interview with Plant. I swear he would literally faint in the presence of the Golden God

    It's hard to believe that Robert Plant was ever in Led Zeppelin. Clearly, that music hasn't been in his musical taste for decades. That song sounds like it could have come off of 1988's Now and Zen album. Hell, it might have even fit in on The Principal of Moments way back in 1983. He took the Moroccan folk music that was present in some Zeppelin tunes to a new level and has been a significant part of everything he does as a solo artist. I like moody, airy music, but I feel like his moody, airy stuff is best left in the 80's. I tried really hard to like Raising Sand and Band of Joy as well. Perhaps I'm not listening to his stuff in the right frame of mind.

    A joint? Feh. Who does that? Drugs? Feh.



    I think the 2 albums you mentioned are among his best. Shaken and Stirred and "Principle" are my least favorites. Have you heard Dreamland? That was mostly 60's folk and blues covers but I thought the band rocked them up pretty well. I think that and Now and Zen are my favorites. I've watched some live performances of the new one but haven't had a chance to pick it up yet.

    I have Now and Zen. I was a pretty big fan of that stuff back in the 80's. The CD had become popular and that over-produced sound was pleasing to my ears back then as it could really fill a room. But listening back, it just hasn't held up well. Was Dreamland the album with Morning Dew? I like that song. Definitely mellow and dreamy like most post-Zeppelin Plant music, but I like it. I think Mark Knopfler does what Plant is doing in a more pleasing way - at least for my ear. Plant did that album with Alison Krauss, but Knopfler did a better one with Emmylou Harris. I'm going to have to take another listen through on Dreamland. I may have missed something decent there.

    Yeah, that's the one. I liked the Krauss duet so maybe you can't go by my word though!

    This is common with a lot of musicians. They'll go solo and milk their catalog till the cows come home, but won't play with the original band. I think the reasoning is that when its done in a solo band setting, there's little expectation or pressure.

    If Zeppelin did a show tomorrow, it would be
    "he doesn't sound like he used to"
    "I saw them back in '78, they shoulda stayed retired"
    "this is sacrilege"
    "No Bonzo=No Zeppelin"

    If Plant hires a pack of nobodies and does 90% Zeppelin material, people don't hold him to the Zeppelin standard. It's just Plant and friends, not Zeppelin.
