Pullin’ ‘Tubes: Patty Griffin & Her Driver – Robert Plant

Over the weekend,  The Continental Club in Austin hosted a pair of benefit concerts for injured and uninsured Austin musician Michael Fracasso and the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians medical assistance program simply billed as “Patty Griffin and Her Driver.” For those that haven’t been keeping up on Ms. Griffin’s personal life, they were in for quite a treat as when she finally welcomed “her driver” to the stage about a third of the way into her set it turned out to be none other than former Led Zeppelin front man Robert Plant. Griffin recorded and toured with Plant as a member of Band of Joy back in 2010; while more recently the two have been romantically linked and rumored to have eloped this past summer, something Plant originally denied – but has since been confirmed.

Backed by Griffin and her three-piece band, Plant mixed tunes from Griffin’s solo catalog with material from Band Of Joy’s lone studio album and a healthy dose of rearranged Led Zeppelin classics. While there is currently only a handful of videos that have been uploaded to YouTube from Saturday night’s show, we wanted to share one of the better ones that we found. Watch as Plant & Co. deliver a fiery Texas blues-infused version of Black Dog, which included some audience assistance…

    Robert Plant is better has a solo artist, without her, she is dowdy,drab, and depressing.

    I’ve loved getting to see the videos of these two together and it was so great that they took the time out to do shows for such good causes. They are a lovely couple and just seem so down to Earth and happy together. Patty is an amazing artist and one of the best living songwriters, maybe the best.
