Have Plant and Bono ever met?

I know Plant was a U2 fan in the mid-to-late '80s; wonder if he still is.

Plant was actually one of the first rock stars to become friendly with U2. Dennis Sheehan was part of Led Zeps tour management and after Zep ended he went to work as U2's tour manager. Early in the '80s Sheehan brought the band up to see Robert Plant at his farm in England and they began a friendly relationship. Bono refers to Plant as the "Tall Cool One" and Plant in turn refers to Bono as the "Short Fat One".

Now this is something I would of liked to see. I found this in an article about Sheehan.

"It’s Sheehan’s closeness to U2 both professionally and personally that is most revealing as to his talents and abilities. Berry tells of the time when it was his birthday, and U2 dressed up as members of Led Zeppelin in his honor. “It was hilarious. They’d do anything for him.”

If Bono was dressed up as Plant, was he in a blonde wig and wearing stilts?

Thanks for that! Enjoyed the hell out of it. 'Miles Runs the Voodoo Down' is probably my favourite Miles track and easily the greatest title for any piece of music ever.

That is a cool track name and one of my favorite Miles Davis tracks as well.  I also liked the b****'s Brew album as a title as well and it's title track.  It has nearly become my favorite album of all time.  I find the live performances interesting only because the album and its tracks were essentially spliced together from many performances.  Miles Runs the Voodoo Down is one of the only tracks from Bitches Brew that sounds similar live as it does on record. 


This thread, by the way, is a blast.  I love finding what is posted here and then using YouTube to find similar performances through its format.  I find I often judge bands by how good they are live, and this gives me quite the respect for artists I didn't give much consideration to before.

That stretch from Dead Star through Knights of Cydonia was INCREDIBLE.

Interesting overall setlist, too, although it would've been nice to see a different encore. One thing that occurred to me was how much stronger the songs from the Resistance are live on this tour than the last one.

Eurasia really is pretty damn good live, surprised me how good it was here.

And yeah I agree. Animals and Follow Me were incredible, Both which were so-so to me on the album.

I liked this on YouTube so I could remember to post it here, and then forgot all about, lol!   You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

It's Pink Floyd, shot on 8mm film by some guy in the audience at 3 different Floyd LA-area shows: Hollywood Bowl in '72, Memorial Sports Arena in '75 and Anaheim Stadium in '77. It's just pieces of songs, really; I don't think there's a complete song in it, but it's still worth watching.  8)

I'm gonna get nailed, for putting this in here.  :D

But I'm not actually a drummer. I'm a singer. And my username comes from this song, which I love.

This is a great performance of "Little Drummer Boy", by Celtic Woman.

Depeche Mode is going to release a concert film of this 2013 Berlin show before the end of the year; in the meantime, you can see a YouTube-edit version here:    You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I'm currently a bit more than an hour into it myself; helluva show.
