Robert Plant on "The Colbert Report" Tonight


Recommended Posts

So this was one of my favourite interviews of the many in kind that Robert’s been doing, because the line of discussion – Arthur, love of poetry, William Blake, Pre-Raphaelites (William Morris’s beautiful poem “Love Is Enough” is woven into the lyrics of “Rainbow” – that kaleidoscope he keeps referring to is one of sound and words), a T.H. White reference, and, saving the best for last, a glimpse behind the armour in mentioning Derfel, bless him – speaks my language here. It touches on the heart of the matter, you could say.

You can tell that Stephen Colbert is a genuine fan, but kept in character, and that Robert’s got a yarn for any occasion, but they had to stick to the script so what we got was brief, funny, and insightful followed by a good tune. Leave ‘em wanting more. As it should be.
