Opening Arguments



There aren't many acts I'd go out of the way to see live anymore -- that was another part of my life. But the Robert Plant-Alison Krauss tour would be at the top of the list. I first saw Krause when she was just a kid, on stage with Bill Monroe at Bean Blossom. And what was the point of anybody else doing heavy metal music after "Led Zeppelin II"? And they weren't even exactly a metal band.

This is a fascinating marriage of styles, and the reviewers say the show is something special. Rockers will be disappointed that the duo go more in the direction of Alison's root music than Robert's, but, hey, they're both, as producer T-Bone Burnette says, out of their comfort zones.

Did the "live gig" thing for a few years nyself, and EVEN have pictures taken at the concerts when cameras were ALLOWED (Nugent in mid-air jumping off his stack of "Marshalls"...gotta love that).
You're welcome to my "slide show" any time, Leo...in case you wax mostalgic.

Alison is a hottie, no question, and her band is fantastic. She really knows how to take BLUEGRASS music back to it's roots. I never miss any concert on TV (she pops up on PBS from time to time).

As for Plant...saw him tour solo twice in Philly, and he's always been a good performer.

Zep...what can you say about them?
"Fantastic" is a good start.

I think it'll be a good tour for both.

Alison Krauss is one of my current favs. The Robert Plant duo is on my current play list. A haunting meld of bluegrass and brit metal

its very rare indeed these days there are still a few very talented musicians out there and These are prime examples
