Robert Plant at the Mountain Jam

Robert Plant at the Mountain Jam

Even after all these years of riveting showmanship, improvisation and creativity - Robert Plant has been at the helm of classic rock genre. A masterful display of his talent at the Mountain Jam was an affirmation that his prowess cannot be overshadowed, as he almost single-handedly carries on the legacy of Led Zeppelin. 

Plant has never restricted himself in trying to re-create the exact sound of his former band–but rather kept their love for exploration alive, breaching new musical territories for over three decades.  He has continuously moved on with youthful zest in his ever-evolving solo career. Nor has he restricted himself to any single band because of their creativity or commercial success. For each of his last three albums, he has sought fresh lineups that he could inspire to produce whatever new sounds were bouncing through his head and to re-interpret one of rock’s most sacred back catalogs.

He breathed new life into songs such as “Black Dog,” “What Is and What Should Never Be” and in particular, the hauntingly retarded “Dazed and Confused” with The Sensational Space Shifters. Juldeh Camara’s African one-stringed fiddle dazzled as the lead instrument on a number of extended mid-song explorations, and the crowd just loved guitarist Justin Adams during his rockabilly-inspired solo towards the end of “Funny in My Mind (I Believe I’m Fixin’ to Die).”
