A Musical Marriage of My Dreams

posted by Tony Jones

In high school, I was the president of the Led Zeppelin Fan Club.  It was a small club, but we were zealots.  My best friend, Todd, and I must have watched The Song Remains the Same over 100 times — we knew every line by heart. 

Also while in high school, I bought a banjo (later traded in for a mandolin) and thus began my obsession with bluegrass, old time, and folk music.  Among my early purchases was Alison Krauss and Union Station’s, Every Time You Say Goodbye.

So, you can imagine my joy upon waking to the news that T Bone Burnett’s matchmaking of Krauss and Robert Plant resulted in five Grammys including album of the year and record of the year.

Now, if that long-rumored Zeppelin reunion tour would ever happen…

wasn’t there a ‘zeppelin’ concert last year?
without the greatest rhythm section in the history of rock music i don’t think you can really say that led zeppelin still exists. i might still have work to do on the metaphysics of that position though.

A recent issue of Rolling Stone Magazine, I believe, put the kibbosh on any Led Zeppelin tour/reunion, ’cause Robert Plant has emphatically said, “No.”
I love AK+US and have every album of hers/theirs, and saw them 2x in Dallas/Fort Worth, but I just don’t enjoy the Plant+Krauss album all that much, even though I’ve had it since it first came out and saw their concert together on TV. Maybe I need to listen to it some more.
Regardless, Alison Krauss will be teaching the angels how to sing when she joins them. What a voice!

Ending Christian Euphemisms: "Fundamentalist"
I've taken some heat in the comment section for using yesterday's post on "unbiblical" and a "higher view of scripture" as a thin foil for my own disregard of biblical standards. To the contrary, I was pointing to the use of the word unbiblical as a stand-in for a particularly thin hermeneutic. Ther
