  • “Who’s Gonna Save My Soul?” — the next single from Gnarls Barkley’s forthcoming The Odd Couple — has been leaked onto the Internet courtesy of the Roots?uestlove, who posted the song (and his lip-synching of it) on his YouTube page.
  • Fall Out Boy will release **** Live in Phoenix on April 1st. The CD/DVD set will feature a twenty-two-song live performance from last year’s Honda Civic Tour, their cover of Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” (featuring John Mayer on guitar), the band’s eight videos and behind-the-scenes footage and outtakes.

So the show that lead to the reunion of the greatest band in history wouldn’t be special?

If anything that makes it even more special. Could you imagine a new Zeppelin album being made as a result of that show? And that would diminish the importance of that concert in London?

Plant has destroyed a great opportunity for millions of fans. Not to mention John and Jimmy. I respect his legacy but he could have greatly added to it.

It must be rough havibng to take 200 million dollars to front the greatest band in history.

If Robert is concerned about the legacy they can come out play some Zep songs, let him bring out Alison Krauss, and then close with more Zep. He can give the whole 200 million to charity. For some reason he has been trying to shake the whole Zep legacy for 20 years.

“For Plant to turn down $200M not to tour with Led Zep, Krauss must really be a great lay.”

I think Plant’s lost his mind. No one’s that good!!!

What??? Nostalgia? Why not create a whole lot more future nostalgia for the whole word. And the 200 mil?

You should not only be willing to do this, but also suck a horse’s dick at the end of every show.

This Zen shit must’ve really fried your brain, holmes!

Jimmy’s Satanism is obviously serving himself well this time around!

It is so cool to see a musician turn down a chance to do the old in favor of the new.

The clips I saw from the Led Zep reunion were incredible, but I like the idea of keeping that show special. It was a tribute to Ahmet Ertegun. It will be years before we ,music fans, really feel the loss of someone like him.

And the Plant/Krauss colaboration is incredible. Much credit has to be given to T-Bone for the production. Seeing and hearing these three musicians on a stage together is going to be something incredible.

And tomorrow we get to hear what T-Bone has brought to the new BoDeans album.

That Robert Plant is such a whipped bastard. He’d rather tour with Alison Krauss than the other members of Led Zep. For Plant to turn down $200M not to tour with Led Zep, Krauss must really be a great lay.
