– Weren’t lucky enough to be at Robert Plant‘s intimate Nashville show at the War Memorial? Now you can catch the whole thing on DVD, as Band of Joy: Live from the Artists Den will be released on 7.10. In Mr. Plant’s own words, from the press release statement: “Some years back I was propelled by chance, with little planning or expectation into an American way…with a lean and pull into a new direction…voices and harmony, restraint and explosion, tight and loose, great joy in great company….in a blizzard in Nashville. My thanks to one and all for aiding and abetting this exciting bend in the road.” Rumor has it Plant can be spotted frequenting East Nashville spots Jeni’s and Eastland Cafe…
