Robert Plant made a surprise appearance with Los Lobos the other night at Taste of Chicago, tearing into Morphine's blues chestnut "Treat Her Right." The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the former Led Zeppelin lead singer had been seen milling about town for a few days, even conducting an impromptu jam session in a hotel lobby.
Plant's new album, Band of Joy, co-produced by Buddy Miller, will be released on 14 September. One of the tracks is The Little Band From East L.A.'s "Angel Dance." "Apparently he's been a fan of our songs for a long time," Los Lobos' Louie Perez recently told Rolling Stone. The band will be filming a video with Plant for his version of "Angel Dance."
