His show at Brooklyn Bowl was a feast for fans of Led Zeppelin, and also those who have followed his recent solo career. We were treated to a lot of old Zep songs, reinterpreted through tempo adjustments and new instrumentation from Plant’s backing band, the aptly dubbed Sensational Space Shifters.

“Whole Lotta Love” was a chief example of Plant’s ongoing experimentation with classic Zeppelin songs, as the song served as its own medley, blending Celtic effects, blues and African rhythms. Similarly, such singalongs as “Black Dog,” “What Is And What Should Never Be” and “The Lemon Song” were stretched but not entirely fractured with Plant’s new twists. Plant played an African drum and tambourine, and an African fiddle joined straightforward rock and some bluesy melodies throughout the evening.

Sounds amazing. Gotta enjoy it while these legends are still around.

The rock band Yes has had a long, remarkable and often cosmically complicated career, and the box set they put out this week only underscores those truths. Almost unprecedented in the history of rock music, the progressive-rock giant is releasing “Progeny: Seven Shows From Seventy-Two,” a box set of seven full concerts from three weeks during a 1972 concert tour, with the exact same set list. More than 12 hours of performances (14 discs), but in total, only seven full songs. (Guitarist Steve Howe and keyboardist Rick Wakeman each takes a solo turn.) Put another way, has Yes simply gone insane? I mean, you don’t expect modesty from a band that once released a double album with just four songs based on the Shastric scriptures. Still, there was reason to wonder if “Pathology” wasn’t a more apt name for the new set.

Yes have released an 11-minute clip from upcoming live DVD Like It Is – Yes At The Mesa Arts Centre, in which they perform classic track Heart Of The Sunrise.

The show was recorded during their 2014 US tour. They performed 1971 album Fragile and 1972 title Closer To The Edge in full on the evening.

On May 26, Yes will release Progeny: Seven Shows From Seventy-Two, a 14-disc box set comprised of recently discovered complete concerts from their 1972 world tour. Ultimate Classic Rock is pleased to present the exclusive premiere of “Roundabout,” which you can listen to below.

Progeny captures seven dates in the middle of Yes’ tour in support of Close to the Edge, beginning with their stop at the Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto on Oct. 31, 1972 — from which this version of “Roundabout” is taken — and ending with their show at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y., three weeks later. Later on in the tour, the band recorded the shows that resulted in the triple-LP Yessongs.

Disregard the bad link title below. This is a link to a concert review of Robert Plant in Las Vegas.

Fans (and nonfans) have quibbled since the ’70s about the enduring strength of his vocals, but on this night, there was no debate: The 66-year-old Plant sounded better than he did at House of Blues in 2002 or the Hilton in '05, soaring over his six-piece backing band, the Sensational Shape Shifters, without showing signs of strain.

Some new arrangements helped with that. "Black Dog" slowed down some and turned tribal, with Juldeh Camara jamming on a single-stringed African riti and Plant pointing to the crowd for help with the “ah, ah” section of the chorus; “Dazed and Confused” careened into pseudo-Celtic territory; and an encore version of “Rock and Roll” featured a droney, almost-industrial reworking. Other oldies were presented as-is, however, like a powerful “What Is and What Should Never Be” and a sublime acoustic “Going to California.”

Classic Rock celebrates 20 Years "Pulse"

Pink Floyd - Comfortable Numb.
Original from the album : The Wall

"Comfortably Numb" is a song by the English rock band Pink Floyd, which first appears on the 1979 double album The Wall. It was also released as a single in 1980 with "Hey You" as the B-side. It is one of only three songs on the album for which writing credits are shared between Roger Waters and David Gilmour. The chorus melody was written by Gilmour while Waters contributed the lyrics and the music for the verses. The song had the working title of "The Doctor". An early version of the song was included under this title on the "Immersion Box Set" of The Wall, released in 2012.
The song is one of Pink Floyd's most famous, and is renowned especially for its guitar solos in the middle and at the end of the song. In 2004, the song was ranked number 314 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. In 2005, it became the last song ever to be performed by Waters, Gilmour, Wright, and Mason together. In 2011, the song was ranked 5th in the BBC Radio 4's listeners' Desert Island Discs choices. The two guitar solos were ranked as the greatest guitar solos of all time by both Planet Rock listeners and WatchMojo.com.

As this list of Top 10 Chris Squire Yes Songs shows, the only constant for this band is change – and, of course, Squire himself. The bassist-singer co-founded Yes in 1968 with frontman Jon Anderson and, almost five decades later, he’s the only original member left. It’s strange, then, that Squire has always been the legendary prog-rock band’s most underrated figure. Over the years, their style evolved gracefully from symphonic prog to accessible New Wave and pop-rock and back again, even as others have fled and re-joined with cyclic frequency. But it’s impossible to imagine Yes without Squire’s piercing Rickenbacker bass tone and throaty harmony vocals – no matter who else surrounds him. Hear for yourself, as we present the Top 10 Chris Squire Yes Songs.
Ultimate Classic Rock counts down the Yes songs that best showcase co-founding bassist Chris Squire.

I want to vote for 2112 as one song, dammit!
Since the release of the Not Fade Away single in 1973, Rush have released a grand total of 184 studio recordings. We'd like you to decide which is your favourite: simply choose one title from the (very long) list below, hit the 'Enter Poll' button, and we'll do the rest, counting up the votes on a vast abacus and announcing the results before our next issue is despatched to the printers.

On Wednesday night generations of Rush fans of varying sizes converged on the Toyota Center to see the mightiest power trio to ever emerge from Canada. It was an especially emotional night for some fans, since the band has said recently that this could be its final, large-scale national tour. They gave Houston three hours of their time as a proper send off.
