Love Robert Plant but I’m sorry that he can’t belt it out like he used to.
I watched a Biography the other night on the BEE GEES. True talent. There is a lot to be proud of to be able to carry your music from the 60’s to the new millennium. Unlike the Stones, they are not pathetic.
Re: The Stones - Charlie Watts is not pathetic . At least he enjoys his first love jazz now , and has released some excellent jazz albums in recent years .
I saw that. My hubby watched it twice and called me in to watch it.
I was so touched by the love and respect those brothers had for each other.
I enjoyed them talking about harmony and the lack of it in music now.
I think they carried that harmony into their brotherly relationship too.
I agree, but there's something to be said for growing old gracefully. There's a lot of things I can't do at 40, that I could do with ease when I was 20. Plant has to be approaching 60, if he's not there yet. Certainly, the vocals wear down, along with the rest of the body.
Though I can't cite any specific interview, nor can I provide any links, I've followed Zeppelin over the years. From what I've read, the remaining members are content to let their "Stairway to Heaven" days be just that: a thing of the past. Something to bring out and dust off every once in a while, and then put it back on the shelf. Kind of like an old high school yearbook, or the girl you tool to prom. Remember the greatness, but don't try to relive it. (Besides, she's had 4 kids, and now goes 200+ lbs!)
p.s. Sorry, just noticed your login name, and realized that last line may not be appropriate. Your high school crush might now work in Walmart as a stockperson, and weigh 300+ lbs!
