The God of Rock

I had the great fortune to see Robert Plant and his new band, The Strange Sensation, in concert last Sunday night at the Chateau Ste Michelle Winery. While they played a nice selection of songs from their new album, they also busted out some classic Zeppelin. I admit, I practically cried. They played Gallow's Pole, When the Levee Breaks, Black Dog, Whole Lotta Love, and Misty Mountain Hop. Plant is an amazing performer live. Very chatty with the crowd, displaying his impressive knowledge of music. He dedicated the concert to John Bonham. Sunday was the anniversary of his premature death 25 years ago. All in all, it was a dream come true for me. Hopefully, I'll get to see him again soon.
