Ann Wilson Week: Isolation
antiMusic reports: Heart frontwoman Ann Wilson is releasing her very first solo album, Hope and Glory, next week. The album not only showcases Ann's amazing talent but she also got a little help from her friends including Elton John, Gretchen Wilson, Alison Krauss, Rufus Wainwright, and of course her sister Nancy. This week we get a little preview with Ann telling us a little bit about a few of the tracks on the CD. Here is Ann with today's song: Isolation

For me this brilliant John Lennon song was always a very personal, very human response to being messed with -- to being totally kicked around. It's about what it feels like to be on "the human trampoline," as Paul Simon would say. 

Because my own response to being treated that way is always to get very isolated, this song means a lot to me. Recording "Isolation" meant even more because I cut that vocal and that track only a few days after our mother passed away. That's actually the first take. We didn't add much of anything. We didn't have to.- Preview a couple tracks off the CD, grab tour dates and more right here!

Plant Confirms Zeppelin Reunion?
antiMusic reports: Could the long rumored Led Zeppelin reunion really be happening? First it was an anonymous source saying that Plant, Page, and Jones were in talks for a one-off reunion show and now apparently Robert Plant is talking to random people on the street and confirming the reunion. Of course another anonymous source now claims to also know the date of such a reunion. 

In a story that's a bit hard to believe, someone emailed NME.com saying that he or she spoke to Robert Plant in London on Wednesday and the Led Zeppelin frontman confirmed the reunion plans and said that he was on his way to a meeting with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones. 

The fan reportedly walked up to Plant and asked him about the reunion and maybe Robert has been on a deserted island this past week as the rumor mill has been churning at full speed because he reportedly asked the fan, "How did you find out about this?" And even more unbelievable he supposedly told the fan, "Well we've got a band meeting about it this afternoon about it. There's not a lot to work out as it's only going to be one-off gig."- now about that date for the reunion
