Their new label Swan Song released Bad Company’s debut platinum record the year before. All five of their albums had gone platinum and they were selling out stadiums. Earls Court, the largest venue in the UK, sold out five nights of shows, each of which would last over three hours.

Robert Plant

Earlier this week Robert Plant had a Facebook Q&A when he released lullaby...And The Ceaseless Roar and he discussed his admiration for Jack White. He even went as far as saying he'd like to record a song with White when he visits Nashville. Unfortunately, White is still on tour and nothing will come from the comment now, but you never know down the road.

They received permits from the city to paint it, however the permits were recinded last week. Why? The city claimed that is was an advertisement for the album, which is against city regulation. Late last night, thanks to a petition started after Friday's announcement, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has saved it from being removed.
