Robert Plant and Allison Krauss featuring T Bone Burnett

-A.S. Well, I know we’ve been talking a lot about legends at Bonnaroo 2008. That talk would not be complete without mentioning possibly the biggest legend there, Robert Plant. I enjoyed the Robert Plant and Allison Krauss album, Raising Sand, and I knew not to expect to see Led Zeppelin when we headed over to What Stage for the last time.They opened with “Rich Woman” and I realized that the set was not going to have much more energy than the album, which I often put on when relaxing. Plant and Krauss sounded great together though, as did the Raising Sand Review featuring T Bone Burnett.

One of the most shocking moments of the weekend came from hearing the opening riff to “Black Dog.” Except it wasn’t the rocking riff that causes you to crank the volume. It came with a country twang and was weird to hear a folk/country cover of one of the greatest rock songs. It wasn’t bad, just not enough to get you going. Musical blue balls if you will.Blake and I stayed to hear a few more tunes, but after a while the prospect of air conditioning in the car and beds at the end of our journey beckoned to us. It was time to head home and conclude our Bonnaroo 2008 experience.

    I disagree. I thought this show had a ton of energy. T-Bone and the other guitarist really tore it up in a calm country music kind of way. The way I described this show was that it was the soundtrack for what I was doing. Lying on my back staring and frying in the sun.

    Well put. I never said I didn’t like it, just that it was too relaxed for my last show of Bonnaroo. -A.S
