I’m as much of a Led Zeppelin fan as anyone, but I have always loved Robert Plant’s solo stuff. His newest album, “Lullaby and the Ceaseless Roar,” from which this song comes, is my favorite of his albums. He’s such a pure musician, traveling everywhere for new ways to access the music that is always inside him. He’s a lot like Paul Simon in that way, I think. This track, in particular, is stunning. For a super cool article with Plant, check out this piece on NPR.
One thought on “Modernism Monday: “Rainbow,” Robert Plant”
I couldn’t agree more! And thanks for the NPR link. It, in turn, includes a massive rendition of “Stairway to Heaven,” which moved Plant to tears.
