Led Zep’s Robert Plant Keeps Exploring His Muses

September 12, 2014 - Robert Plant has had considerable success following his muse over the many years. Not much has to be said about the legendary band that is Led Zeppelin, the most revered rock group ever. His solo exploration in early R&B yielded some fine solo albums, and then in the 90’s he started indulging his true loves including English and American folk, 1960’s psychedelia, and African music, particularly from Mali. The results, including his immensely popular Raising Sand excursion with Alison Krauss, have struck honest chords. Now with his return to living in the UK comes the new album Lullabye ….. and the Ceasless Roar recorded with his band The Sensational Space Shifters. Today he explores the album with us, celebrating the music he loves.
