The revived Band of Joy group -- which Robert formed as an experimental blues band in the 1960s -- now includes singer Patty Griffin, multi-instrumentalist Darrell Scott, guitarist and co-producer Buddy Miller, drummer Marco Giovino and bassist Byron House, according to Rolling Stone."It's no longer to do with vanity, ego, and visible success," says Robert.
"It's just about getting down into the earth of music.
NEW YORK — Think about Robert Plant and the images of the "golden god" come to mind — the thick, blonde hair, sparkling blue eyes, slim physique — combined with a bluesy yelp that practically defined the raw power of rock 'n' roll.
While his face may show signs of age at 66, much of his rock-star look remains intact.
"There were Deadheads, and it was a good place to be," he says. …That is what I want."Led Zeppelin broke up in 1980, and Plant immediately embarked on a successful solo career.
His true creative breakout may have been 2007's teaming with bluegrass icon Alison Krauss for Raising Sand, a platinum album that won six Grammy Awards (including album of the year) and garnered him heaps of critical praise for a perceived change in sound.
Robert Plant is patiently standing in a spacious dark wood and stained glass appointed event room on an upper floor of The Bowery Hotel, a trendy "it" spot on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
He sips a latte Correction: The number of Grammys Robert Plant and Alison Krauss won for their album Raising Sand was incorrect in a previous version of this story.
"If I hadn't heard the Howlin' Wolf, Robert Johnson, Little Richard music, I wouldn't have been drawn to music."He's building upon the past, both his own and the larger traditions of his homeland, both spiritual and actual, and that gives (it) a bewitching depth.It's an album to get lost in."Space Shifters' guitarist Justin Adams celebrates such reviews, if only because they allow the music to stand away from that of Led Zeppelin."Sometimes with Robert it feels that it is hard to get anybody to hear what is going on now (musically) because people are so overwhelmed with his legacy" he says.Most of the music we (in England) were surrounded by was slush, without any commitment. I was born again and saved and reincarnated by American music."Dave Pegg, long-time bassist for British folk-rock group Fairport Convention, well remembers Plant's youthful musical passion.
Monday mornings often found Pegg, Plant and other teens — including future Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, and future Traffic members Steve Winwood and Jim Capaldi — waiting for Birmingham record shop The Diskery to open so they could buy the latest records."Robert and Jim Capaldi were kind of walking histories about blues and obscure soul albums," says Pegg.
While he was socializing after a recent show at the 600-capacity Brooklyn Bowl (yes, a concert venue and bowling alley), Plant's fans took to social media to gossip about why the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Famer would opt to play such a small club when he could sell out the likes of London's 20,000-plus seat O2 Arena.
