Robert Plant To Be First Guest on Upcoming 'Dan Rather's Big Interview'


February 5, 2018

One legend talks to another! That's the deal when newsman DAN RATHER welcomes ROBERT PLANT to his show, The Big Interview, when it returns mid-March. It will be the seventh season for Rather's show, where he sits down for conversations with some of the biggest names in entertainment. Throughout his many talks with musicians, Mr. Rather has noted that one particular thread always seems to be in the forefront of those conversations, namely how powerful music is and how it works to unite us. 

Rather's sit-down with Robert Plant will air in the second week of March, and among the topics discussed will be Plant's own consideration of what he holds to be the “best” song(s) from LED ZEPPELIN. Now, it's no secret that Robert almost always mentions the epic “Kashmir” from Zep's (1975) Physical Graffiti LP as one of his personal favorites.

Robert Plant recently released his latest effort (Carry On) with his band, The Sensational Shape Shifters, and his tour kicks off this week. Additionally, there's a live performance DVD on the way, Robert Plant & the Sensational Space Shifters Live at David Lynch’s Festival of Disruption, an 8-song set that was performed in Los Angeles in October of 2016 for a (director) David Lynch charity benefit. Proceeds from that show and the sales of the DVD will benefit the David Lynch Foundation. The Big Interview featuring Robert Plant airs March 13th at 9pm on AXS TV. (Watch the video promo below!)
