Watch Robert Plant's reaction to 8-year-old girl playing Led Zeppelin on drums

The jaw-dropping video of the young girl went viral — then we showed it to the legendary Zep frontman

 


Last week a video of eight-year-old Japanese drummer Yoyoka Soma playing Led Zeppelin on drums went viral — and now Robert Plant is reacting to her incredible performance.

Yoyoka Soma has been drumming since she was two years old, and by five had formed a band, Kaneaiyoyoka, with her musically-minded parents. But it was a video contest entry for Hit Like a Girl, an international drumming contest for female percussionists, that put her on the world stage.

In it, she drums along to the Led Zeppelin classic "Good Times Bad Times," and it's astounding to watch. The video has since garnered more than 2.5 million views.

But what does Led Zeppelin co-founder and front man think? When he stepped into the q studio with Tom Power, we had to ask.

"Listen to that," says Plant, amazed as he watches the video. "And the thing is, it's like falling off a log for her." He also says what the late Zeppelin drummer John Bonham would think if he could see it.

She’s got a future in playing in the tribute act circuit. Hopefully she’ll continue to enjoy music (either as a hobby or as a paid musician).

How many people here really think there would even be a Robert Plant without Led Zeppelin? 

I for one, do not think Robert would have garnered half the notoriety he has today without being part of Led Zeppelin. Jimmy, Jones, and Bonham would all have been famous in one way or another, Jimmy for guitar and Bonham drums and Jones making waves in other areas of music. They may might not have been Zeppelin famous but they would have fared far better than Plant.

Robert would have been just another singer. The only reason he has any real fame today is due to his work with Zeppelin which is strong enough to carry his fire into perpetuity.

He absolutely would have been known - is voice was too amazing and unique for it not to have been. What sort of band he would have ended up in is hard to say. It's just exhausting to see yet another comment like this, insinuating he owes his life to Page blah blah blah when it's just not true. You could make the claim all four of them may not have been as successful had they not all met and decided to work together. The strength of that band is the combination of all of them equally.
