Robert Plant And Jack White Covered Led Zeppelin Classic 'The Lemon Song'



The audience at Jack White's headlining Lollapalooza Argentina set were in for a seriously special treat. The former White Stripes frontman was joined onstage by Led Zeppelin vocalist Robert Plant to perform the classic "Led Zeppelin II" track "The Lemon Song."

White has long been a fan of the song and performed it when he headlined Bonnaroo last year and has covered it during his Lazaretto tour.

But on Saturday night, real magic happened when Plant, who is also on this year's Lollapalooza Argentina lineup, came onstage to perform the Zeppelin classic with White on guitar. According to Rolling Stone and Setlist.fm, this was the first time Plant has performed "The Lemon Song" live since he and Jimmy Page played it in Norway in 1995.

Plant recently expressed his desire to work with White, saying in a Facebook Q&A last year that he'd be "happy to make a single with him." Plant already chose the song he wanted to record with the "Lazaretto" musician: the 1958 single "Love Me," originally recorded by The Phantom.

Hopefully, they get into the studio soon, but till then we can look forward to another possible onstage collaboration when the two headline Lollapalooza Brazil next weekend.
