Robert Plant has been doing promotion for his latest release, Band of Joy (which is named for one of his pre-Led Zeppelin bands). One of the recent stops on the promotion tour was the London studios of Absolute Radio, where Plant gave an interesting and sometimes quite funny interview to DJ Geoff Lloyd.
Among the topics discussed during the 15-minute interview were: Slade’s Noddy Holder; Plant’s work with the new Band of Joy; his upcoming performance as part of the BBC Electric Proms at the Roundhouse in London; playing a gig on his wedding day; the music that influenced him as a young man; his honorary role as lifetime vice president of Wolverhampton Wanderers soccer team; and his work with Alison Krauss on their acclaimed Raising Sand album. The interview is a must-see for any fan of Plant and Led Zeppelin.
