Sensational Shape Shifters
After a couple of detours (a duo album with Alison Krauss, a covers project with his Band Of Joy, oh, and the Led Zeppelin reunion), Robert Plant is back together with his longtime band, the Sensational Shape Shifters.
“I’m enjoying life and spending more time in America now. I really enjoy it. I’m becoming way more aware and opinionated and stimulated by these new adventures. Everybody says I’m workaholic, and I just keep going and going. And I will do that (again).” — Robert Plant
Robert Plant took a spill when a deranged fan stormed the stage during his performance in Buenos Aires, Argentina on November 1. The stage invasion happened while Plant and his band, The Sensational Space Shifters, were finishing their take on Led Zeppelin’s classic “Rock And Roll.” The man rushed the stage, but security quickly tackled him and shut down his attempt to approach the former Zeppelin frontman.
Plant’s songwriting drought will come to and end with his next album, which features a new backing band, The Sensational Shape Shifters. Plant tells England’s Telegraph that his next record is almost finished, and will feature “Twelve tracks, eleven originals and no sentimental stuff.”
