Robert Plant on NPR

| September 20, 2010 | 0 Comments

The sounds of Led Zeppelin blasted from NPR for my ride home as a backdrop for an interview with lead singer, Robert Plant.  While I like Led Zeppelin a lot, it wasn’t one of my favorite bands back in the day.  Still, this interview moved me to tears, not because it was sad, but because the music was so good.  Maybe the discordance of this kind of music coming from the usual calm mien of NPR, but they never sounded so good.  Of course, Plant’s voice was featured, as what a voice it was/is.  But it was the instrumentals that impressed me, Jimmy Page’s powerful guitar riffs and the drummer was breathtaking.  I don’t even know his name.

Still, it was a pleasant blast from the past.

Check it out.
