    Robert Plant Says Jimmy Page "Should Get On and Do Something"

    Robert Plant says he’s completely enthralled with the music he’s making with his latest group, The Sensational Space Shifters, with whom he collaborated him on his soon-to-be-released studio album, Lullaby and…The Ceaseless Roar.  He tells U.K. newspaper The Telegraph that his desire to explore new sounds is among the reasons why he isn’t interested in taking part in a Led Zeppelin reunion, and he suggests that guitarist Jimmy Page also consider looking forward rather than backward. “He should get on and do something, he’s a superb talent,” says Plant.  “That’s the sad thing for Jimmy, he knows that I’m his… Read more

    Illustrated Book Based on Bruce Springsteen's "Outlaw Pete" to Be Published in November

    A new illustrated storybook based on Bruce Springsteen‘s 2009 song, “Outlaw Pete,” is scheduled to be published on November 4.  The book was the brainchild of cartoonist and writer Frank Caruso, who decided he wanted to bring to life the Boss’ tale of a bank robber who began his life of crime when he was just a baby. “‘Outlaw Pete’ is essentially the story of a man trying to outlive and outrun his sins,” explains Springsteen, whose lyrics serve as the book’s text.
