And how.
Raising Sand is brilliant.I know the Grammys are a crock to many, but it 
deserved them ALL. I don't think it was a mercy Grammy either. Robert Plant 
has done plenty of solo work and then there was the Plant/Page stuff...there 
were other opportunities for Grammys post Led Zep...but then again one of 
the Grammys was Best Song for a Plant/Page song! (Please Read the Letter).
ah...WHO knows????

Excellent idea on the Rog and T-bone collabortation.  Don't forget, Pete 
already worked with T-bone...way back 1985 maybe? Pete played guitar 
on "Fatally Beautiful" on T-Bone's second solo album...Proof Through the 
Night. Excellent song/album.
Pete is quite enamored of T-Bone too so I don't see why he and Rog just 
don't "GET ON WITH IT" and do a cool cover album with T-Bone but that's just 
beneath Pete I guess...  :(
