Triangle alumni watch: Audley Freed

Old Raleigh hand Audley Freed's ongoing assault on the nation's television airwaves continues. Bob Davis advises that Freed will be playing behind Jakob Dylan on CBS' "Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson" Wednesday night -- actually early Thursday morning; 12:37 a.m., to be precise. So tune on in, or set that Tivo...

UPDATE: Dylan/Freed's segment has been postponed until Monday (Aug. 4).

TV alert: Audley Freed

A last-minute tip just came in from our friend Bob Davis: Raleigh homeboy Audley Freed will be on Tuesday night's edition of  "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," playing guitar behind singer/songwriter/scion Jakob Dylan. Tune on in.

ADDENDUM (2/18/10): Freed onstage in Nashville with Gov't Mule.

Led Zeppelin, one by one

I never got to see Led Zeppelin back in the day, but I've been working my way through each surviving member individually. I caught John Paul Jones at South By Southwest a few years back; and Jimmy Page with the Black Crowes. And after tonight, I'll be able to cross Robert Plant off the list when I see him with Alison Krauss, a most unlikely pairing.

I even got to interview Plant last week, in rather amusing
circumstances. At his publicist's behest, I dialed the number of a
hotel in Phoenix and asked for "Mr. Fish."
Next thing I knew, Plant was on the line. He was completely charming,
except on the subject of whether or not his old band would ever do a reunion tour. See the interview in Friday's paper, a package that also includes brief chats with various sidemen plus multiple recaps of other musical odd couples through history.

While I'm at it, click through to see a 2000 interview/review from that Page show in Raleigh.
