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. Even if you don't love Merrill Garbus' records, it's deeply impressive to see her and her bandmates recreating those sound… More »

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… 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… 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 i… 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??? It's easy (and fun!) to make fun of the Grammys, but last year they really deserved it, and viewers voiced their discontent by watching Extreme Makeover instead. For ceremony… More »

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. Consider this the scroll-y cork in our coverage of the fest for this year. More »

Led Zeppelin @ O2 Arena, London (UK) 12/10/07

Yep, the mighty Zep reunited last night. Since we weren't lucky enough to report on it firsthand, we did the next best thing: asked a friend of a friend to give us the lowdown.

Krauss and Plant follow up an intimate rendition for Hoda Kotb with this clip for their take on the Everly Brothers' "Gone, Gone, Gone (Done Moved On)" looking like fools in love, shuffling amid the land of discarded disco balls, bubbles, old-school jitterbugging silhouettes, and creepy blow-up dolls (Jeff Koons in the house?).
