Rock aristocracy Led Zeppelin was in Washington, DC late last year receiving The Kennedy Center Honors! Since the band broke up in 1980 after drummer John Bonham’s death, Robert Plant has refused to slow down. From his solo work to The Honeydrippers album with Paul Shaffer to the Grammy-winning project with Alison Krauss and now with Band of Joy, Robert remains one of the best voices in rock. Hear a replay of my interview with Robert below—I caught up with him when he played DAR Constitution Hall and we talked past, present, future rock, Hobbits, Fatty Arbuckle and more!
