Unexpected Encounters with Band Members Thread in Led Zeppelin Master Forum Posted January 10, 2008 I have often thought about about how fabulous it would be to go down to New Orleans and run into Robert Plant. I know he hangs down there, and loves it. I've never been there......Sad.......so many places, so little time (and $) Well Hell, Com'on down the city is kickin' Mardi-Gras will be Feb. 5 this year but you can start catching the parades as soon as the last week of Jan. Never Know who you'll run into. If the weather is nice should be the biggest since the storm. Plenty of stars hang'n out down here. Our latest neighbors are Brad and Angelina if your a fan.
