5 Memorable Sets From Bonnaroo 2015 Sunday

Sundays at festivals can so often be a bittersweet thing. People are starting to get ragged, the festival grounds start to smell of some kind of putrid something, the big climactic headliners may have come and gone. So often, whoever’s left playing that final night, when the work week looms around the corner, has a… More »

Very Candid Pete Townshend Talks Dylan, Springsteen, Zeppelin, Spotify, And Why He Doesn’t Enjoy Performing

This spring, Pete Townshend and the Who embarked on an extensive 50th anniversary tour, which has been billed as their last major outing. Townshend will turn 70 on 5/19, and one can assume that playing a show every other night gets old after awhile.

Robert Plant And Diplo Are Collaborating

Hide your daughters! Robert Plant has been an upstanding music-industry figure in recent years, working with Allison Krauss and racking up Grammys. But once upon a time, he was one of rock’s most legendarily hedonistic figures. And maybe we’ll get some of that version of Plant sometime soon, since the man is apparently working with… More »

Watch Jack White And Robert Plant Play Led Zeppelin’s “The Lemon Song” At Lollapalooza Argentina

The nicest thing I’ve ever heard anyone say about Jack White is that he’s Robert Plant and Jimmy Page if they were the same person. That gets at White’s appeal, but when you sit White next to the genuine article, you see that he still has a ways to go. Over the weekend, White headlined… More »

Watch tUnE-yArDs Play Jools Holland And Impress Robert Plant

On the most recent episode of the British live-music show Later With Jools Holland, tUnE-yArDs came though and played “Water Fountain,” the joyously dazed and rhythmically complex song from their new album Nikki Nack.

Robert Plant – “Rainbow” Video

Robert Plant continues to show absolutely no interest in playing any more Led Zeppelin reunion shows. He would rather just continue to crank out meditative rock songs like “Rainbow,” the lead single from his new solo album Lullaby And… The Ceaseless Roar, and more power to him. But he didn’t exactly put a ton of… More »

Robert Plant “Disappointed And Baffled” By Jimmy Page’s Desperation For A Led Zeppelin Reunion

Back in May we heard about Jimmy Page’s frustration with Robert Plant over Plant’s refusal to do a Led Zeppelin reunion tour. At the time, Plant decried the highly commodified nature of reunion tours, expressing such reasonable sentiments as “I’m not part of a jukebox!” and “A tour would have been an absolute menagerie of… More »

The 2009 Grammys: Just The Good Parts

NARAS’s flirtation with attempting to matter in 2009 went alright last night. There was so much promised we had Videogum come over to help us log our reactions across as many internet platforms as possible, and even with all that fun and all the performances it still felt like 32 hours of schelp in four-hour… More »

Radiohead, Lil Wayne Nominated For Album Of The Year Grammy

Remember the 50th Annual Grammy Awards? Alicia Keys duetting with the ghost of Sinatra? Will.i.am rapping nonsense? Album of the Year River: The Joni Letters???

Bonnaroo: It’s A (Photo) Wrap

The tents are collapsed, the recycling collected, the hippies headed to the showers (j/k hippies don’t take showers). Bonnaroo ’08 now belongs to the chemically enhanced memories of its campers, and to message boards worldwide as people bitch about Kanye’s ego.
