FAVORITES!!!


EVERYTHING IS MEANINGFUL. - Robert Plant... ROBERT PLANT: Shine's It All Around
Robert Plant is on tour with the STRANGE SENSATION and their new record MIGHTY REARRANGER. Like a legend within a legend, he is The Enchanter now leading and shining through lyrics and music with powerful resonance and dance. It's most cool: The acoustic ecclectic percussive rhythms a main element of sound and soulful expression in his newest music including this year's new record Mighty Rearranger and in new version of his Led Zeppelin classics. Of the new and old and most cool was the harmonizing acoustic version of "When the Levee Breaks" with the Strange Sensation's newest bandmate, Billy Fuller, on stand-up bass, and the most beautiful and melodic "All the Kings Horses".

The passion, the pain, the love, the desire, the longing from the center of ones being and the satisfaction and joy to feel it expressed and released into the creativity of music, this is the experience one may find with RYAN ADAMS, an experience worth sharing. "Like fluid lightening bolts of emotional _expression, he plays every note with a channelling of passion flowing from the depths of his soul through the tips of his fingers into the melodic sounds of his guitar. The spark of crazy love exudes in his very presence through one of his many incarnations. Simply by changing the style of his hair, the fashion of his clothes, the expressions in his tones, he reincarnates in form, but the song - the spirit and essence of his nature - remains the same. He breathes and creativity happens, magic that manifests by a puff of smoke. From his painted canvasses of colorful art to the depths of emotional _expression in his lyrics and music, RYAN ADAMS is the ANDY WARHOL of the art of songwriting. From his past records Rock n'Roll, Heartbreaker, Demolition, Love Is Hell, to his new music for 2005, it all glitters of GOLD.
