My Lost Treasure: Robert Plant Turns 70 This Week
As you may have noticed, I've scaled down My Lost Treasure to once a week. Which is kind of cool because it gives me a chance to really think about what I want to play and why. Like this past Monday Robert Plant turned 70. Let's celebrate.
For today's treasure, and to celebrate Robert Plant, I turned to one of my favorite Zeppelin albums, Houses Of The Holy. I remember a coworker once telling me that Houses was a chick album. Whatever. It's a great album, and I love the song I chose.
Robert Plant has moved onto other things since his Led Zeppelin days, and I have to say I love what he is doing now. When I saw him a few years at Mountain Jam he did lots of new stuff, but he did lots of old Led Zeppelin too. It's nice to see that even though he's moved on, he remembers his roots. It was a great show, and if you ever get the chance to see him in concert, go for it.
Happy 70th, Robert Plant. Thanks for bringing me and so many others a lifetime of great rock and roll.
