Band of Joy
Americana singer-songwriter Patty Griffin played two benefits in her hometown of Austin, TX this weekend, and it seems her set turned into a bit of a Led Zeppelin jam session with her bandmate (and significant other), Robert Plant.
“I’m enjoying life and spending more time in America now. I really enjoy it. I’m becoming way more aware and opinionated and stimulated by these new adventures. Everybody says I’m workaholic, and I just keep going and going. And I will do that (again).” — Robert Plant
Plant’s songwriting drought will come to and end with his next album, which features a new backing band, The Sensational Shape Shifters. Plant tells England’s Telegraph that his next record is almost finished, and will feature “Twelve tracks, eleven originals and no sentimental stuff.”
Robert Plant recently surprised fans by releasing a downloadable live album of a concert with his new band, The Sensational Shape Shifters, the day after the concert. The show was recorded at the HMV Forum in London on July 12 and released as a digital download the following day.
It’s been a long time since Robert Plant’s love life has been so hotly discussed, but the Led Zeppelin frontman is in the news this week for saying that he “eloped.”
