ROBERT PLANT Joins JACK WHITE Onstage For LED ZEPPELIN Classic (Video)

According to The Pulse Of Radio, Robert Plant joined forces with Jack White and his band on Saturday night (March 21) in Buenos Aires, Argentina at Lollapalooza Argentina. Plant, who was on the bill with his SENSATIONAL SPACE SHIFTERS, joined White for the "Led Zeppelin II" classic "The Lemon Song". Plant had previously revealed his hope to team up with White during a September chat on Facebook, in which he said, "I love Jack White's buccaneer spirit, and the way he dodges through the musical horizons. I'd be happy to make a single with him." Plant noted that he wanted the pair to record the PHANTOM's "Love Me".

LED ZEPPELIN's "The Lemon Song" infamously cribbed a portion of HOWLIN' WOLF's "Killing Floor" — one of the many blues songs that inspired ZEPPELIN during its pre-fame days. Plant told The Pulse Of Radio that he's most proud of the fact that it was his generation that first appreciated the blues music of the '50s and eventually brought it to the widest possible audience. "White musicians in 1965 looked back to the Chess studios, going back 10 or 15 years before that," he said. "At the time, there was black music and there was white music, and our translation of black music became — like THE YARDBIRDS, and the CREAM, and parts of THE WHO's program — we became blues-based."

To celebrate Record Store Day 2015, legendary Plant will release a special 10-inch EP, titled "More Roar", which collects three performances from his recent world tour to support "Lullaby And… The Ceaseless Roar", Plant's new solo set with backing band SENSATIONAL SPACE SHIFTERS.

The release will be limited to 10,000 copies and include live versions of "Turn It Up" and "Arbaden" on side A, with a medley of "Poor Howard" and "Whole Lotta Love" on side B.

"More Roar" will be available at participating outlets on April 18. Visit the official Record Store Day web site for more information.

"Lullaby And… The Ceaseless Roar" has earned the former LED ZEPPELIN frontman a Top 10 hit on The Billboard 200 album chart — and rose as high as No. 2 in the UK.
