Great show last night though I thought the show at the Henry Fonda was better. The guys seemed tired and only played for 75 minutes. I guess it's been a long tour. Also, watching them from up close...not sure if there is a lot love going on between Jack White and Brendan Benson...hope they last as a unit.

Back to back nights at the Greek. The night before was My Morning Jacket. First time seeing them and was very impressed. Great crowd.

We sat next to a record company executive who said that Led Zeppelin is definitely going to be touring and that they are in rehearsals now. I read this online this morning that they're still waiting on Robert Plant to show up but I'm under the impression that this tour is a go.

I haven't talked to him in awhile, so I'm not positive he's still playing with them, but from what I can tell by the pictures above, that's him (of course, as he's only in one and distant, I can't really tell).

Great pics. They appear to be tearing it up this tour.

I ran into little Jack Lawrence at the Jacket show in August, now I will see the two Jacks and Brendon and Patrick on Tuesday night at the Ryman before seeing the Jacket again a week later in Chicago.

This year has been too good to me music-wise.

Percy isn't going to be doing any tour with Zep according to his website. He made an official statement:

Quote:
Robert Plant – Official Statement
29th September 2008
Robert Plant and Alison Krauss are currently touring the USA on the last leg of their 'Raising Sand' tour. They played a benefit concert in Oklahoma City for victims of Hurricane Ike last Friday; Austin,Texas last Saturday and tomorrow they play Portland, Oregon before finishing the tour in Saratoga, California on October 5th.

After those dates, Robert has no intention whatsoever of touring with anyone for at least the next two years. Contrary to a spate of recent reports, Robert Plant will not be touring or recording with Led Zeppelin. Anyone buying tickets online to any such event will be buying bogus tickets.

“It‘s both frustrating and ridiculous for this story to continue to
rear its head when all the musicians that surround the story are keen to get on with their individual projects and move forward,” Robert Plant said.

“I wish Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham nothing but success with any future projects,” he added.

Jack was sick or something. I have not had time to investigate what exactly, but it was so not their best show, esp. after 'roo.

First set only 45 minutes, whole show under 80 minutes, his voice off and flat and his frustration w/himself obvious. He apologized to the crowd out loud. You know something is up when Jack White has to apologize.

The Kills are priceless. That grrrrl is something else!!

That's too bad. It can be a hell of a show when they're all there and going.

The Kills were indeed a lot of fun. I need more of their records.
