Robert Plant To Appear On Fats Domino Tribute CD

According to The Times-Picayune, former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant flew into New Orleans late last month to work on a Fats Domino tribute album.

He joined a roster of marquee names - Paul McCartney, Elton John, Tom Petty, Tim McGraw, Norah Jones, Lenny Kravitz, B.B. King, Willie Nelson, Randy Newman - who have either recorded, or committed to record, Domino songs.

Proceeds from the tribute album, scheduled for a fall release on Vanguard Records, will benefit the Tipitina's Foundation.

Established in 2004, the nonprofit foundation has greatly expanded its mission since Hurricane Katrina. More than $1 million has been raised to assist New Orleans musicians and train the next generation. Recently, the foundation donated $100,000 to rebuild Domino's flooded home in the Lower 9th Ward. The Domino Tribute CD is the foundation's most ambitious undertaking to date.

According to The Daily Advertiser, Plant jumped on stage at Tipitina's in New Orleans on April 21 to perform three impromptu songs with the Soweto Gospel Choir, the South African group that performed April 22 at the Heymann Performing Arts Center.
