The other night at the Q Awards, Robert Plant told the BBC that he's been talking with the organizers of England's Glastonbury Festival about playing their fest this summer. The event has already sold out, without naming one performer! But the festival seems to like having a very hip bill with some prestigious bigger names headlining - such as Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young and Paul McCartney. Plant said to the "beeb": "There is a place for me there, but I have no idea who with." He's always so cagey: of course millions of people would be hoping that he is referring to another Led Zeppelin reunion (although, this time around, John Paul Jones is the Zep-guy with the busy schedule, due to his new band Them Crooked Vultures). But he could just as easily be referring to another performance with Alison Krauss. Of course, as great as Robert and Alison are, they probably wouldn't be the right choice to headline that festival.
