With the Them Crooked Vultures members now returning back to their day jobs , John Paul Jones first post TCV appearance found him in Spain at the  African Express concert held in A Coruña, Galiza, NW Spain over the weekend. Reports are sparse but I can confirm that John appeared playing bass on Elíades Ochoa’s version of “Chan Chan.” Mariam improvised and everyone enhanced the haunting Cuban masterpiece. He also appeared alongside former Clash guitarist Mick Jones, Amadou and Mariam, Ochoa, Amparo Sánchez and others in a version of “Rock The Casbah”  sung by Rachid Taha.
Related Vultures news: The anthemic Scumbag Blues will feature on the forthcoming Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock Playstation 3 game. So you now can be either Josh, Dave or John Paul in the comfort of your own living room, the game is due out in September. Here is a reminder of the Vultures prowess from the recent Fuji Rock Festival in Japan.

With various additions being made to Robert’s Band Of Joy tour last week keep an eye on  Roberts own website for  latest info.

Here is Robert Plants new video for the first single, Angel Dance  from the forthcoming Band Of Joy album.

We are currently trying to tie-up any loose ends on the tour watch, any help with set lists would be greatly appreciated.

Black Country Communion have today posted a free MP3 download of their debut single “One Last Soul” on their official website – Recently premiered on the UK’s leading classic rock radio station ‘Planet Rock’, “One Last Soul” has become one of the station’s most requested songs of 2010.
The song will be featured on BCC’s highly anticipated debut album released in the UK/Europe by Mascot Records on 20th September, followed by 21st September North American release on the J&R Adventures label.

Former Robert Plant keyboardist Jezz Woodroffe has been in touch to inform us that his ” In Through the Swing Door” has been  re released  with an extra bonus track of Big Log in the same style. Full details are at Jezz Woodroffe and Sally Hope website.

    I agree with G.P. and M.A, above it certainly is more in the vain of Led III folk/rock style. Robert’s vocals are spot on. The video is cool, Robert looks great. Can’t wait until my disc arrives upon release. I love the photo of JPJ he looks like he is having the time of his life. I love the irony that he’s playing with Mick Jones…. what was it the Clash once said about Zeppelin?…hmmm. For those who want to get a sense of what Jimmy’s up to I recommend Ross Halfin’s website under his Diary. Great pictures now and then of Jimmy, who looks to me as if he’s having a great time as well. I’m still hopeful about his upcoming work and waiting for my book to be delivered next month?

    I like the sound production and Robert’s voice sounds in good form but too me the song is a little too laid back and boring. It is lacking soul and passion-I can get into that type of music in the right setting.Fate of nations was the last album that I recall Robert really putting some passion into the music.-I will look forward to hearing more from the album though.I’m more curious about Jimmy’s so-called upcoming project.

    I downloaded the single today for BCC – One Last Soul, must admit its a really good track, looking forward to the album when it comes out, Joe plays a great solo. The Angel Dance song aint too bad either, its starting to grow on me more, its a pity I cant get on with the live country folk rock versions of the Zep songs he’s currently doing on the US Tour, Ill give them a few more plays on the tube to see if they grow on me.

    Anyway rock on!
