  2. Apologies if this has already been posted... http://newsroom.ucla.edu/portal/ucla/the-who-rock-icons-launch-daltrey-218078.aspx?link_page_rss=218078 The Who rock icons launch Daltrey/Townshend Teen and Young Adult Cancer Program at UCLA Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant lends support for program, first of its kind in U.S. By Roxanne Moster October 27, 2011 Category: Campus News, Health Sciences WHAT: Rock legends Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of the Who say they owe much of their musical success to teenagers. In a heartfelt repayment, the two will announce the launch of the UCLA Daltrey/Townshend Teen & Young Adult Cancer Program, which will serve teens and young adult cancer patients at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. The new program — the first of its kind in the United States — will build on the previous successful efforts of the Teenage Cancer Trust, which has helped fund 19 special teen cancer units in the United Kingdom. Rock icon Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin, who has been closely involved with the program in the U.K., will also attend the news conference to lend his support. The rockers will all sign a guitar during the press conference that will be hung on the wall in the new UCLA cancer unit. The vision of the UCLA Daltrey/Townshend Teen & Young Adult Cancer Program is to ensure that every young person receives the best possible care and professional support to help meet the unique physical and emotional challenges resulting from a cancer diagnosis. The belief is that teenagers and young adults shouldn't stop enjoying their youth just because they have cancer. WHO: The following individuals will be in attendance at the press conference: Roger Daltrey Daltrey, a British singer, songwriter and actor, is best known as the founder and lead singer of the rock band the Who. Pete Townshend Townshend, a British rock guitarist, vocalist, songwriter and author, is known principally as the guitarist and primary songwriter for the Who. Robert Plant Plant, a British rock singer and songwriter, is best known as the vocalist and lyricist for the rock band Led Zeppelin. John Paul DeJoria DeJoria, who will receive the 2011 UCLA Health System Humanitarian of Hope Award, is chairman and CEO of John Paul Mitchell Systems. Dr. David T. Feinberg Feinberg is president of the UCLA Health System, CEO of the UCLA Hospital System and associate vice chancellor for health sciences at UCLA. Sarah Sterner Sterner, 17, who had a cancerous tumor removed from her brain, is an avid rock 'n' roll drummer whose favorite bands include the Who. She is now a spokesperson for the Daltrey/Townshend Teen & Young Adult Cancer Program. Mike Pena Pena, 28, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma at age 23 and was treated at UCLA. He relapsed and endured a lengthy hospital stay while undergoing a stem cell transplant. He will speak about his experiences being treated as a young adult and what he learned visiting some of the teen cancer centers in the U.K. Dr. Jacqueline Casillas Casillas is director of the UCLA Daltrey/Townshend Teen & Young Adult Cancer Program, an associate professor of pediatrics at UCLA and a member of UCLA's Jonsson Cancer Center. MEDIA OPPORTUNITIES: The press will have the chance to interview Roger Daltrey, UCLA officials, and the teen and young-adult cancer patients and survivors. B-roll of Daltrey meeting with teen cancer patients in the hospital at UCLA and footage of the U.K. program will be available. WHEN: Noon on Friday, Nov. 4. WHERE: Tamkin Auditorium, Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center (map) 757 Westwood Plaza, Los Angeles 90095 BACKGROUND: When hospitalization is required for teens with cancer, they are often placed in either a pediatric or adult unit. The UCLA Daltrey/Townshend Teen & Young Adult Cancer Program's special hospital unit will be a comforting environment where young people stay in adjoined patient rooms around a common lounge so they can provide emotional support for each other. The units are designed to provide, as closely as possible, a normal life, helping the youngsters cope with grueling treatments and long hospital stays. PARKING: Parking for passenger vehicles will be available in Structure 8. Permits must be picked up at the parking kiosk on Westwood Plaza. Call one of the UCLA media contacts for reservations. TV trucks should park in the southbound right-turn lane on Westwood Plaza, south of UCLA Medical Plaza — eight to 10 spaces will be available. R.S.V.P.: Contact media contacts below to R.S.V.P. and obtain a parking reservation. Space is limited and an R.S.V.P. is a must.

  3. First I would like to start off by saying this is SECOND HAND INFORMATION so I do not know the truth behind it... There was a woman on twitter a few days ago who was listening to an interview with Alfie Boe on his latest project and she claims that AB said Mel C (Spice Girl I think) and Robert were going to join him as special guests during his concert at the Royal Festival Hall. I checked the website and he is doing a concert there on December 7th. That is all the information I have on this, and, again, I did not hear it myself so it may not be true at all.
  4. Yeah, every reliable source I heard from said he wasn't there and I do think it had something to do with ALL THE FUSS that was going around in Austin because I think it would have been an event he would have really enjoyed...I mean, Billy Gibbons made a special trip to drive there after a concert so it was kinda the place to be. I have to say though, for all the people who have all but posted their address, there are also a lot of people who are posting that they saw Robert and Patty at such and such a place a day or so ago and thought it was really cool that no one was trying to take pictures or mess with them, so I think it evens out. Austin is a very cool city and I know a vast majority think it's great he's there but are also used to celebrities. If the small few who still freak out and go WAY OVERBOARD with information will just chill, it should be fine.
  5. I also heard about this issue and probably shouldn't have posted that link on here about what was overheard. There are still people claiming that Robert was at the Continental although people who would actually know, including Dony Wynn, have said that he wasn't there. From what I've heard from people who were at the club (or tried to get in) it was an absolute craze. Of course, I'm sure Johnny Depp had something to do with it, but I know that there was A LOT of talk about Robert being there for the midnight show the day before and the day of. Also, more on the line of Robert and Patty, some of the information that has been tweeted about both of them has been uncomfortably specific as to locations, activities, etc. and I'm just hoping that things will calm down when he becomes less of an oddity in the Austin area or that they're at least aware of the situation and taking precautions.

  7. Here's a video of some of Robert's performance last night at the Cannery Ballroom with Patty and Buddy, including some talk about finding his feminine side and cleaning work surfaces Also gives a shout out to Crown Vic at the end
  8. Getty Images has some pretty amazing pictures of the festival as well...several of Robert, including when he came on during Patty's set to sing "Lonely Avenue" and then some of him just out watching the music or waiting for his next guest appearance.
  9. I'm sure this comes as a HUGE surprise lol... Robert Plant at HSB "Though it’s not on the published schedule, former Led Zeppelin vocalist Robert Plant will join Patti Griffin on Saturday and Buddy Miller on Sunday."
  10. He was also pulling in songs like "Another Tribe," "Shine It All Around" and "Let the Four Winds Blow" and I believe those all to be from his solo career...
  11. According to the drummer Dony Wynn who posted on his facebook page last night and looks a bit like ZZ Top mixed with a Hell's Angel... Dony Wynn Okay, the first one got nailed, and there's more to come... I am... Robert Plant's drummist. We are Crown Vic. The. sh*t. -d ... fuckin' wow
  12. I asked a magazine guy that was there doing an article and posting some pictures on twitter what the sound was like and he said: Incredible! Mostly killer blues rock w/ some Louisiana accordion & beats. A few slow tunes too. their harmonies are perfect.
