  1. Thank you, jakeswearingen! It was most enjoyable. Lisa: ... there was a private plane, there was a very tight, small entourage, there was security; it was hard to get to you. Robert: It wasn't if you wanted to be got to.
  2. New Release: Uncle Earl Announces Music Video for Streak O 'Lean, Streak O' Fat Nov. 29, 2007: Burlington, MA -- Stringband sensations Uncle Earl have just released the video for their song "Streak o' Lean, Streak o' Fat" from their latest album Waterloo, Tennessee. Set in an anonymous Chinese restaurant, the video follows a chaotically unfolding Kung Fu clogging battle between warring alien forces that breaks out where touring stringband Uncle Earl has stopped for dinner. Sensing impending dance madness, the Uncle Earl "g'Earls" leap for their instruments and play a rousing tune (with original Chinese lyrics) to spur the action. When the fighting gets dirty, Uncle Earl intervenes and they unite the two warring tribes in a dance of joy and cooperation. Uncle Earl producer, Led Zeppelin's legendary multi-instrumentalist John Paul Jones, makes an appearance on piano. The concept for the video was a collaborative effort between director Tom Krueger (Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, U2), producer Brad Paul, and band member Kristin Andreassen. Other band members, listed according to instruments they play in the video, include KC Groves on bass, Rayna Gellert on fiddle, and Abigail Washburn on banjo and vocal (singing her own original Chinese lyrics). Released in March, Waterloo, Tennessee is "...some of the most compelling bluegrass that's ever left Tennessee." (New York Post) Produced by John Paul Jones, Waterloo, Tennessee combines raucous fiddle tunes and jug band blues with ballads of loss and exile, affectionate love songs, and a profound longing that can only be echoed in the strains of fiddles, banjos, mandolins, and tender harmonies. Bluegrass Now magazine says "Uncle Earl has ‘g'earl' power; they know themselves and just put it out there." Part of a new generation of bold young acoustic musicians, the four women who compose Uncle Earl are awakening the sleeping giant of old-time string band music, holding it up as a mirror to our present era.

  3. ^ Bumb. Sorry, this is too good to get buried in the back pages.
  4. Robert Plant, Alison Krauss Raising Gold 11/28/2007 Stephen L. Betts Raising Sand, the critically-lauded album by Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, has been certified gold by the RIAA, denoting sales of more than 500,000 copies.

  6. Written by William Miller Mr. Cameron Crowe! RS spelled his name wrong. Thanks for sharing this, tyedye!
  7. Conan's wearing the 'blue bouse'! Edited To Add: I need some time to adjust my head. After watching this, my mental images of young Robert keep morphing into Conan. Thanks a lot, Mooney1975.
  8. Good for you! We want all the details, afterward. Have a blast and welcome to the board!
  9. Led Zeppelin did not achieve their musical status as a result of the mainstream press supporting them. They've had negative press and rumor mongering since day one. This is nothing new and means nothing. The only difference today, however, is the method of delivery. It goes viral; world-wide; within minutes. Take a look at the negative that's been published so far; mostly clueless speculation and no credible sources to substantiate any of it. Their age-no issue, Robert's voice-no issue, Jimmy's finger-HE say's it's not an issue, Jason's competence-no issue, the other members are confident in him, Jonesy's whatever-no issue ... (Being low-key has it's benefits.) I know you're concerned, Wolfman. But, this isn't a regular tour gig. This is THE GIG ... in honor of their dear friends Ahmet and John and in honor of the Led Zeppelin legacy. You're a part of that legacy. Honor them with your presents, your heart full of joy and your mind without doubt.
  10. Correct! Jesus Quintana - The Big Lebowski.
  11. Spinal Tap Let me tell you something, bandero. You pull any of your crazy shit with us, you flash your piece out on the lanes, I'll take it away from you, stick it up your ass and pull the trigger until it goes ... click. Jesus. You said it, man. Nobody fuck with the Jesus.
  12. Yes, this was excellent! His life was very intriguing, to say the least. His interest in the interaction of dance movement with the theremin lead him to work with the American Negro Ballet. Dance pieces were choreographed to interplay with the instrument. He eventually married prima ballerina Lavinia Williams. Then ... poof! He vanished ... (You have to watch it. I don't want to give away the mystery. ) The Theremin - Leon Theremin with commentary by Robert Moog (Moog Synthesiser)

  16. Thank you for sharing. It was very cute. Per Alison's forum on CMT, she apparently has quite the collection of boots. (The kind you walk in. )
  17. Not to fuel any rumors, but if you believe in six degrees of separation: John Paul Jones to play JPJ?
  18. DITTO! We're anticipating clips like this from the 02. I'll be here, as well.
  19. ... and it looks like there is a zeppelin pointing toward earth between his ears.
