Song Of The Day: Robert Plant And Alison Krauss – “Please Read The Letter” (2008)

Happy Birthday to Robert Plant, one of the greatest Rockers that ever lived, who turns 69 today. Plant owns a level of artistic integrity that few other Classic Rockers can match, because he refuses to re-live the glory days of 40+ years ago over and over again. Post-Zep, he chose to constantly look forward and grow like all the best artists do, following his creative muse wherever it would take him. Along the way he has made some brilliant music like the album Raising Sand, his 2008 collaboration with T-Bone Burnett and Alison Krauss, from which this track is taken. In my book Raising Sand is on the list of greatest albums ever made, right up there with the stuff Plant did in his glory days. The guy is an object lesson for every aging Rocker. May he stay healthy and creative for many years to come.
