Robert Plant Compares Band of Joy To Jefferson Airplane
"This is the Band of Joy I played in all that time ago, or at least that was the plan: to go to the place where much of the music we were playing in the'60s originated, and play it with these people," Plant told The Observer. "But now it has a life of its own. In the free-form moments of our music, we're playing a mixture of Indo-jazz fusion and a great gig by Jefferson Airplane."
He also spoke about the significance of being a member of a band, rather than a solo artist. "Most of all, I want to be on these kind of terms with these kind of people," he said. "There's no point in doing it any other way, and if I did, I'd feel uncomfortable. I've got the big name, but I've always wanted to be in a band, one of a band. And this is what I have to be to do it." more on this story
