Robert Plant and Jack White rock Lollapalooza with “The Lemon Song”
When attending a massive music festival, there’s no way to be certain which surprise guests will find their way onto the stage. This year at the Lollapalooza Argentina Festival, Jack White brought the guest of all guests out to join him during his set. Without unnecessary introduction, Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant strolled out to perform “The Lemon Song” with White—the first time the bluesy Zeppelin song has been played live since his 1995 tour with Jimmy Page. White has covered the Led Zeppelin II classic a handful of times in prior Bonnaroo sets, but has never been joined by the definitive rock and roll icon himself.
During a chat on Facebook last September, Plant professed, “I love Jack White’s buccaneer spirit, and the way he dodges through the musical horizons. I’d be happy to make a single with him.” The two finally crossed paths in Argentina and made sure they found each other on stage for an unforgettable enactment.
Both musicians have kept busy with experimental sounds and fresh endeavors such as White’s latest album, Lazaretto and Robert Plant and the Sensational Shape Shifters’ Lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar.
White and Plant are both scheduled to play the Lollapalooza Brazil Festival. Hopefully this isn’t the last collaboration we see involving the engaging duo.
