Countdown to Bonnaroo: 9 Days – Artist of the Day: Robert Plant & Band of Joy

31 May

Oh what a day it is, we are single digit days away from Bonnaroo!

Robert Plant, the name says it all.  As vocalist for one of the greatest rock outfits every formed, Plant is not only an icon in the world of music but still going strong and pumping out new tunes.  Touring with his current Band of Joy consisting of Patti Griffin, Buddy Miller, Darrell Scott, Byron House and Marco Giovino, the festival stage should be rocking with this talented group of musicians.  Also with Alison Krauss performing at Bonnaroo as well, I’d say chances are likely the duo who won Album of the Year at the 2009 Grammy Awards have a little something planned.

Now if you are around my age, you never had the chance to see Led Zeppelin live (one of those bands on a short list of if I could see any band/artist today) but the opportunity to see and hear the voice and lyricist who helped pave a soundtrack to my music influences, I’ll take that any day.
