WooHoo...I get to meet Robert Plant tomorrow!

Just got a call from WHJY radio in Providence, and I won a contest they ran on their website. Me and a guest get to meet Robert Plant backstage before he opens for the Who, and ask him one question. Then of course we stay for the concert. We were also supposed to attend his soundcheck, but they said The Who is using all the rehearsal time due to having a new bass player.

Should I ask him about the mudshark incident??

Congrats Hewson...that is some prize.
One question?...good luck.
Enjoy the show. I've been listening to Pete Townshend play on Bowie's "Slow Burn" Robert Plant and The Who

Can I be the "guest"?...just kiddin. That's wicked awesome. What section are you in? I'll be in sec 7. Maybe I'll run into you at the beer stand. I'm pysched...This will actually be the first time I go to see an opening act worth seeing. 2 classic acts in one night. Can't beat that. Oh yeah, you beat it by actually meeting Robert Plant. That's what I get for listening to mix98.5.....enjoy the show, I know I will.

Well, he will deny that question as always! But be ballsy and give it a go!

Have a great time! That's going to be an amazing show!

Lucky bastard!!!

You'll have to give us all a review of the show! Tell us if Robert does a lot of Zep or more of the new stuff.

That rocks!!!! I love Robert Plant, both as a solo artist and with Led Zep.
Ask him something about U2! jk!

LOL! He probably wouldn't be too happy about that! But congrats on winning the contest- I've never met someone who's actually won one of those before!

Don't know where the station will be sitting us for the show. From experience with radio contests, I guess they'll be average seats, not real great, but hopefully under the pavillion. Either way it should be a great show.
I've seen Plant 3x solo and once with Jimmy page, and he is always great, and as for The Who...they are one of the premier live bands in rock history...this should be a great night.
I'll keep my eyes open for you.
Enjoy.
