Continuing our run of coverage from this year's kickass installment of the New Orleans Jazz Fest, we've got a collection of snaps of the legendary Robert Plant. Along with his backing band the Sensational Space Shifters, the former Led Zeppelin frontman turned the classic jam “Black Dog” into a meandering work of art, as Plant issued a call and response from the audience.
Unfortunately that's as close to a Led Zeppelin performance as we're going to get these days, as Plant recently shot down the idea of an actual reunion saying there's "no chance" the band will take the stage together in the future. But the man's still willing to throw rabid fans a bone from time to time, which helped make a fantastic performance an unforgettable one in the New Orleans sunshine.
