Robert Plant on The Colbert Report


“Reaffirming that the ever-adventurous Plant has used his legacy as a launching pad rather than a resting place, the 66-year-old singer and his band the Sensational Space Shifters fused new and old material with bluegrass melodies, Celtic percussion, African fiddle, spooky electronica and mike-stand-twirling rock.” – Los Angeles Times

“Mr. Plant, 66, has long inhabited the guise of a rambler and a scavenger, the sort of artist who finds new use for all kinds of old fodder. For much of the last 35 years – roughly since the end of Led Zeppelin – his musical pursuits have suggested the pull of curiosity, along with a determination to remake and be remade.” – New York Times
