Plant also revealed that he and Alison Krauss, with whom he shared the Grammy with for 2007's , "The sound wasn't there," and promised the magazine, "We'll come back to it." So what's Plant up to now (besides chiding British Prime Minister Tony Blair for being a Roman Catholic)?Apparently, he and Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page attempted to re-create a 1978 trip to Morocco where the duo wrote "Kashmir." Other than that, not much.Where "Rich Woman" (a 1955 release for L'il Millet and the Creoles and later cut by Canned Heat) was dark and ethereal, by contrast the pair's "Gone Gone Gone," was brighter and moved at a quicker pace, featuring Burnett on rockabilly guitar during the live Grammy performance, and certainly matching the energy of the Everly Brothers' original. Ever the candid individual and willing to say whatever is on his mind, Plant brought readers up to speed on his musical life."But I've gone so far somewhere else that I almost can't relate to it...It's a bit of a pain in the pisser to be honest." With a new Foo Fighters album on the way, it looks like former Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones doesn't have to worry about his old band interfering with Them Crooked Vultures, his side project with Dave Grohl and Josh Homme.Today, Krauss's award tally ties her with producer-musician Quincy Jones and is just five away from the all-time Grammy champ, conductor Sir Georg Solti.Musician T Bone Burnett produced the eclectic Plant-Krauss LP , which was released to rave reviews in October 2007.
Prior to 2008, Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant had just one Grammy to his name, sharing the 1998 trophy for Best Hard Rock Performance with Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page for a track from their collaborative LP .
When the 51st Grammy Awards were over on February 8th, 2009, Plant had a total of seven, thanks to a much more unexpected collaboration with fiddle player and vocalist Alison Krauss, whose own Grammy haul was much more extensive. At the time, she was 19 and the second youngest winner ever.
