Robert Plant & BP Fallon & evidence, Abbey Road recording studios London Feb 25 2010
Robert Plant was singing at Abbey Road studios in London in aid of Cancer Research, the charity driven by Bob Harris who once had cancer. It was an amazing evening. Over £200,000 was raised.
Robert Plant, after singing with a 76-voice choir – singing the Scott Walker opus ‘Farmer In The City’ and then ‘I Bid You Goodnight’ from The Incredible String Band’s ‘A Very Cellular Song’ with Nigel Eaton on the hurdy gurdy, all magnicent stuff, Robert singing so fucking soulful – after that Robert says to BP “There’s this book someone left for me to sign. There’s a picture of us back then. We must get our picture taken with it”. So they do.
