Robert Plant & the Band of Joy


One of the few rock geezers to truly put the sex in sexagenarian, Robert Plant reinterprets the music of Appalachia with ghostly dankness on his recent solo album, Band of Joy. His live show’s an unexpected crowd-pleaser, too. The Joy features guitarist Buddy Miller and singer Patty Griffin, and their recent warm-up gig at the Beacon included a ripping trio of Zep covers (alongside Low and Los Lobos tunes) done electric-hillbilly style.
