Robert Plant and Neil Young Perform at Bert Jansch Tribute

(Classic Rock) Robert Plant and Neil Young were among those who paid tribute to late folk-rock pioneer Bert Jansch at a memorial concert on Tuesday, marking what would have been his 70th birthday.

The Pentangle co-founder died in 2011 after a battle with lung cancer, leaving a musical legacy which inspired a wide range of musicians including Eric Clapton, Donovan and Elton John and Nick Drake.

Guest performers at London's Royal Festival Hall included Led Zeppelin frontman Plant, Ralph McTell, Donovan, and Pentangle bandmates Jacqui McShee, Terry Cox and Danny Thompson.

Young recorded an exclusive video performance of Jansch's Needle Of Death, which inspired the Canadian's own classic track The Needle And The Damage Done. Plant sang Go Your Way My Love, later saying: "We all came to a similar place but we concentrated on different levels. Bert was a digger for us all." more on this story
