    Robert Plant in a new light...for me

    I was cruising YouTube looking up Nick Lowe's "All Men Are Liars and came across a couple of cool videos featuring Robert Plant. Now normally, I have little interest in Plant, but these two videos put him in such a different light for me that I think is so cool. It makes me like him more than I used to. Here are the two videos:

    Plant with Rockpile performing "Little Sister" live as part of the Concerts for the People of Campuchea in 1979.

    And a more current vintage Plant performing Zep's "Black Dog" with Alison Krauss. Cool take on it.

    Not sure that this makes a good thread, except maybe some of you have had similar revelations about performers in a different context that makes you like them more than you did before.

    That is the most smokin' version of 'Little Sister' I have ever heard...with apologies to Elvis.

    This seems somewhat familiar. I believe I have heard this before. Rockpile was known for bringing guests on stage with them. I have a live recording where they bring Keith Richard on for a couple of numbers.

    Rockpile is ( IMHO) the most under rated rock band ever. Along with the Rumour , these guys were the best kept secret of the early 80s.

    I concur. Rockpile is flat out a great rock band.
