Robert Plant shifts shapes yet again

Bookmark and Share

A decade ago, Robert Plant's solo career seemed little more than a footnote to his Hall of Fame stint as Led Zeppelin's iconic frontman; solid and more than respectable, but unremarkable when compared with what had come before. In a supremely unlikely turn, however, Plant has hit his stride in recent years by going from one fascinatingly odd project and configuration to the next.

Plant's latest incarnation is fronting an eclectic ensemble called the Sensational Shape Shifters, a show that plays the Triangle this weekend. See the preview interview (for which Plant was his usual charmingly chatty self) here. And for some more words about Plant's recent past, here are live-show reviews from 2011 and 2008; and also a semi-massive 2008 preview interview.
