Well folks. Turns out there is a god.
After much speculation and rumour and wishful thinking, Jack White and Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant came together during White’s recent headline set at Lollapalooza Argentina, for a very special rendition of Zep’s The Lemon Song. It’s the first time Plant has played The Lemon Song since 1995, when he and Zep guitarist Jimmy Page performed it in Norway.
It’s far from the first time that White has shown us his love for Led Zeppelin – or that Zep have displayed affection for the former White Stripes‘ frontman. Last September, Plant told Reddit that he loves “Jack White’s buccaneer spirit… I’d be happy to make a single with him.” In fact, he’s already picked out the song. It’s called Love Me, originally by The Phantom (listen here.) Plant will be visiting White’s hometown of Tennessee for Bonnaroo, so here’s hoping it happens then!
White has covered The Lemon Song a couple times live, including his historic headline performance at Bonnaroo last year. White has also co-starred with Jimmy Page in a documentary about the electric guitar, and both Plant and Page have sung White’s praise in interviews. So let’s hope that one day we’ll see all of these legends performing together in some form or another.
Watch it here. If this doesn’t give you shivers of happiness, I don’t know what will:
In any case, we couldn’t agree with Jack more:
