Robert Plant was a keynote speaker at the 2005 SXSW Music Festival in Austin Tx.

Plant talks of love of "blue"

Robert Plant's keynote address was really an interview, as Bill Flanagan, senior vice president of MTV Networks International, quizzed him on his formative influences, his history with Led

Zeppelin, and the genesis of his latest project, Robert Plant and Strange Sensation, who will release their first disc next in May.

Plant was at ease, joking about the shallowness of his Led Zeppelin lyrics, his idol worship of American blues artists, and how "the blue note" has influenced every aspect of his career.

Attendees at Plant's talk got a double treat; prior to Plant's appearance, country star Marty Stuart strummed acoustic guitar for gospel queen Mavis Staples, who warmed the crowd up with a few trademark R&B numbers, at the same time noting she had a hard time finding a label that would release her new album because she doesn't look like a "Beyonce" anymore.

She told the crowd that in her day, she was a "Beyonce" and in the years to come, Beyonce can look forward to becoming a "Mavis."

After Staples' performance, Plant and the audience were surprised when the singer was presented with the Led Zeppelin Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award. Plant was not able to be present at the awards show in Los Angeles the month prior, and Recording Academy president Neil Portnow flew to Austin to present him with the award.

Plant noted it will be 25 years this fall since Zeppelin drummer John Bonham died, and 37 years since the band released its first song.

Plant then went on to speak about how his introduction to Elvis Presley as a kid sent him down the road to discovering American blues music.

"He really opened the door to my whole love of music … because his choice of material opened me up to so many artists," he said. "Postwar Britain was very dour and understated … and then I heard Elvis."

He talked about his parents "cutting the cord" on his record player to keep him from playing this raucous music, and years later when he and Led Zeppelin were brought to "an audience" with "the King," in a room that was rapidly "filling up with secondhand Ann Margarets."

Despite the female eye-candy, members of Zeppelin kept Presley's attention for a couple of hours, talking about the history of music, he said.

Plant said he was "discovered" by Jimmy Page and invited to join The Yardbirds, and laughed at the irony of how, while Zeppelin used to disparage fellow Brits Black Sabbath when they were first starting out, now both bands end up with their discs lumped in the same "classic hard rock" CD pile for the public.

He also talked about his fascination with transcendance, and exotic, African and Middle Eastern rhythms, which influenced Zeppelin songs like "Kashmir," as well as his latest solo project.

His key advice for musicians? "Stay away from a major label," he warned. "You've got to deal with people who are telling the truth … start small."

The attendance at his concert that night, backed by Strange Sensation, was anything but small.

Led Zeppelin becomes the first band in history to have 6 albums on the charts at the same time.

Shortly after the release of Physical Graffiti in Feburary, all the previous albums simultaneously entered the charts.

I think it's also true that when ITTOD was released in 1979, that all nine of their albums were on the charts at once. This being the Billboard 200.

1995- Jimmy Page escaped being knifed when a man rushed the stage at a Page & Plant gig at Auburn Hills, Michigan, but was stopped by two security guards, whom he wounded instead. After his arrest, the assailant told police that he wanted to kill Page because of the satanic music he was playing.
