Watched Robert Plant on Austin City Limits tonite. Pipes sound great, he looks good, and he has a killer band. Love the old Led Zep covers done anew, love the new stuff, love the roots and stuff that goes over big at WOMAD. Nothing too mellow, either, no pop crap or power ballads. This is probably the best band he’s had since Houses of the Holy. Fuck rock star reunions anyway, you should always do something new. If people want old bands playing old tunes the old way let them buy the CDs. The past is done, it’s dead, it was already, and life is far too short to waste on nostalgia.
