Jack White and Robert Plant

Rolling Stone  23 April 2015
The video of this Lollapalooza Argentina duo can be found on YouTube. It's a little blue and grainy, but it is well worth the viewing. Oddly, I had just purchased the remastered Led Zeppelin II which houses "The Lemon Song" that Plant performs with Jack White. I am having a bit of a love affair with Led Zeppelin this spring. I've always loved them, but after seeing the film "The Song Remains the Same" with friends, I'm obsessed. Plant has aged, certainly, but his essence, his vitality, is still very much a part of his performance. I can't wait to see him next month here. He may not be getting the lead out, but whatever he offers will, I'm sure, be amazing.

And with Jack. Heaven on earth. Plant says that he wants to partner up with White: "I love his buccaneer spirit, and the way he dodges through the musical horizons." Hear hear! And I do mean that I want to hear that collaboration.
