Robert Plant, David Gilmour launching podcasts
It's 2019 and it seems like just about anyone of note now has a podcast. Add to that list a couple rock icons: Robert Plant and David Gilmour.
Robert Plant's is called Digging Deep and launches Monday, June 3 on all your favorite podcast and streaming platforms. On it, he'll "delve into his back catalogue to revisit a track from this remarkable history to tell stories of inspiration, collaboration and intervention. It’s Robert’s personal road map to an incredible and personal journey that’s ongoing to this very day." Says Robert on the podcast trailer, "I'm gonna be picking out songs from here and there along the way, mixing constant shifts in sound and intention, men and women who encouraged and enlightened." Listen to that trailer below.
If you need more Plant, there's a Led Zeppelin documentary in the works in celebration of the band's 50th anniversary. It's directed by Bernard MacMahon (PBS’ American Epic), and promises to be "the definitive telling of the birth of the world’s biggest selling rock band." Title and release date are still TBA.
The David Gilmour Podcast is slightly less exciting, as it's a three-episode special promoting his upcoming charity auction where he's selling off some of his guitars. Each of the three episodes will focus on a different guitar from this collection, including his black Strat, "looking at the music that was recorded on them and detailing the musical history of one of the world's most influential guitarists." No doubt those guitars all have some great stories attached. The release date for The David Gilmour Podcast is still TBA, but it will be ahead of the New York auction at Christies which has his guitars on display from June 14-19, with the auction itself on 6/20. Listen to the trailer below.
