Report: Led Zeppelin to perform at the Grammy awards? Eh, sort of…

Robert Plant and Allison Krauss will be performing at the Grammy Awards. I never watch the Grammy’s anymore but I’ll watch it just for that one performance and then I’ll probably switch the channel after. I love the Robert and Allison project. I wish people would appreciate the Robert and Allison bluegrass project rather than obsess with the Led Zeppelin reunion. The Robert and Allison duo is a full time thing, it isn’t a side project for Robert, he is committed to it.

Do yourself a favor and buy the album “Raising Sand” if you haven’t yet, and you would see why Robert loves the project so much. It’s one of the best albums I’ve heard in years. One record I can never get tired of listening to.

I think Robert and Allison will one day be bigger than Zeppelin. While I am a die hard and obsessive Led Zep fanatic, I do not want the reunion tour to happen. Let the O2 Dec. 10th 2007 gig be their final and last good show. Leave the legacy at a positive note. Don’t let the nostalgia of Led Zep overshadow Robert and Allison.

Report: Robert Plant and Allison Krauss confirmed to be going back in the studio in Jan. for second album, plus Plant talks a little about the Plant-less Zeppelin tour…

Robert Plant speaks out to the Birmingham Evening Mail, a newspaper in the UK, confirming that he and Allison Krauss will be heading back to the studio to record their second album, their follow up to “Raising Sand” released in 2007. He also speaks very briefly about the Plant-less Zeppelin tour that Pagey, Jonesy and Jason are planning without him. Plant approves their tour without him and he also confirms that they won’t be calling it Led Zeppelin. Pagey’s new band will under a different band name.

Robert is probably getting sick of Led Zeppelin and I can’t blame him a bit. He wants to move on to other music projects and seems to be happy with Allison. The Robert and Allison project seems to be full time, not just a side project.

I wish people would get over themselves about Led Zeppelin and appreciate what Robert is doing with Allison. I like the Robert and Allison country project. It’s amazing stuff and I’m looking forward to their next album.

Robert is just doing what he wants to do and doing whatever makes him happy. He doesn’t give a shit what anyone else thinks. Musicians do what they want to do in their lives. If other people don’t like what they do, that’s tough shit. What Robert and Allison do together is really good stuff. I listen to “Raising Sand” all the time still.

Report: Robert Plant and Allison Krauss in no hurry to end collaboration…

Robert Plant and Allison Krauss love their “Raising Sand” album too much that the pair don’t plan to stop making music together anytime soon. Robert says he wants to stay close to this project as much as possible. Meaning, he not want this to be just a side project, he wants his collaboration with Allison to be a full time thing. So expect Robert and Allison to make more albums together down the road.

I wish people would get their minds off Led Zeppelin and concentrate on this project with Allison and Robert. I love the “Raising Sand” album, it’s Robert’s best project outside of Zeppelin. Robert and Allison’s project has been overshadowed some by the Led Zeppelin reunion which is kind of sad. “Raising Sand” is excellent stuff and Robert deserves more respect with his project with Allison.
