Come senators, congressmen Please heed the call Don't stand in the doorway Don't block up the hall For he that gets hurt Will be he who has stalled The battle outside ragin' Will soon shake your windows And rattle your walls For the times they are a-changin'

I met robert plant one afternoon at the tiki bar 3 doors down from our place inn FL. He was with his latest young lady, his manager and manager’s wife. Only 8 of us total at the bar, and he started obscure music trivia. With me, he was messing with the wrong guy, and we hit it off well(never mentioned that I was never much of a Zep fan).
He had just released the bit with Allison Krause—I told him that I liked the cd, and asked him what he was up to currently. He replied laughing, “ I guess that I am a country singer now”. He mentioned getting a band together to tour that releAse, and I asked who might be in the band. He said, “don’t know yet”,so I ran by the names of the top genre players, with him answered “no” to everyone mentioned. I mentioned Darrell Scott(who has played at my home)—-he had never heard of him at that time. First tour band was Plant, Krause, buddy miller, T-Bone Burnett + bass and drummer from Sam bush band.
He invited my wife and me to go out with them that night to a karaoke bar. We went—-another amazing story for another time. Great evening and we ended up with up front tickets in Louisville for opening night of the tour. Another story for later.......
Morphed into Band of Joy, with Darrell Scott replacing T-Bone, and patty griffin replacing Krause. Saw that show also. Not as good as first show imo......
