Untouchable boomer gods.
Well it's clear you are biased against older successful artists.
personally I was never a Zep fan and wouldn't pay to see Plant and Krause, but when I've come into contact with the older generation of rock stars I've found them to be passionate about music and capable of more energetic, powerful performances than many youngsters.
You are seeing the people who stayed the course - through 40+ years. Not the people who dropped out for an easier life.

Has anyone seen recent Bon Jovi, Crue/VNeil or Whitesnake shows in person or on youtube?

They can no longer belt out the songs as they were recorded when their voices were young, but still try.

New versions are in order to keep the party going.
boy...Bon Jovi is painful...

Not going bother watching whatever that is . .

Life and success cannot be measured by numbers my freind …..
VB is DFO's version of clickbait. If you keep posting here it only encourages him them...

(P.S. I like Plant's stuff with Krauss. Not enough to pay to hear it, but enough to listen all the way through whenever I come across it, which is more than I can say for most 'pop' music...)

Yikes, this is even worse than when Phil Collins ruined the Live Aid Led Zeppelin reunion.

Never liked the post-Zep Robert Plant, but the violins, the train beat and the somnambulating performance is an absolute desecration. Disrespectful to Bonham, actually.

Sad commentary. Its a new take on a standard(since 1971), nothing disrespectful at all. JB is gone. LZ is gone. So is Jim Croce & his magic bottle.
Nothing is worse than Phiz's train wreck @ Live Aid (ruined Clapton's set too)! Okay, maybe a natural disaster or school shooting but not this! If it wasn't for Robert Plant doing this version it would've sucked by anybody else... think the high kicking Heart women.

This arrangement might have found it's way on LZ III. I'm indifferent to it and skipped the third album... pretended it didn't happen.

I just watched this and as a huge Zeppelin fan, I thought it was great. The musicians Robert has surrounded himself with are doing a great job. Nobody can be John Bonham and I think this was very well played. Jay is a great drummer and I love his vintage vibe with the set.

Apologies. His partner (former?) Is/was Patty Griffin. Folk singer songwriter. She's about as good as it gets in her genre. I didn't grow up in the 70's. Zeppelin is great. The best members of the band are John Paul Jones and Bonham. Singers barely qualify as musicians and Jimmy page is fine. I don't think Robert Plant would be remarkable outside of being in Zeppelin. I can't name any of his solo work. He's a legacy act. Always had been. Nothing progressive or worth bothering to pay attention to.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

Frank Sinatra would like to have a word with you. He's got chunks of guys like you in his stool.

I like it that he's making work for Allison, Jay and the rest of the musicians and crew.
Wasn't it he that pulled the plug on LZ when JB died? I heard they almost hired Phil Collins...
