2012 saw lots of Led Zeppelin activity, including the band’s inclusion in the Kennedy Center Honors ceremony in December.
Last week, Rolling Stone reported that Robert Plant recorded a new album with his occasional collaborator, Buddy Miller. Miller is becoming a familiar name to Plant’s fans.
Two members of Led Zeppelin made surprise appearances — albeit separately — at San Francisco’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival over the weekend. On Saturday, Robert Plant joined folk singer Patty Griffin during her solo acoustic performance at the free festival. Meanwhile, John Paul Jones, who has spent more time supporting other artists than making his own records in recent years, made three guest appearances.
