Modernism Monday: “Rainbow,” Robert Plant

Standard

 

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.

    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.
