Robert Plant, Jack White Team Up for 'The Lemon Song' Collaboration

Robert Plant stunned the audience at Lollapalooza Argentina over the weekend when he joined Jack White on stage to perform the Led Zeppelin favorite "The Lemon Song."

White played the tune twice before while on tour in 2014, but performing it with Plant himself on stage marked another milestone, Rolling Stone reported. The appearance was the first time Plant performed the song live onstage since he and Jimmy Page played it in Norway in June 1995.

Plant first talked about his eagerness to work with the award-winning guitarist and former White Stripes frontman during a Facebook Q&A last September.

"I love Jack White's buccaneer spirit, and the way he dodges through the musical horizons," Plant wrote at the time. "I'd be happy to make a single with him."

"I'd like to do a track called 'Love Me,' which was originally recorded by The Phantom," he continued. "In fact, I'm going to Nashville on Sunday and can do it on Monday morning. I've got lunch with Alison Krauss at 2 p.m. and cocktails with Patty Griffin at 8 p.m."

Though the September meeting never actually happened, the two appeared to make up for lost time with Saturday's performance.

Page recruited Plant to start Led Zeppelin — originally known as the New Yardbirds — in 1968. Plant would go on to launch his own solo career in 1992.

Led Zeppelin reunited numerous times for special events, including in 2007 when Plant and Page came together for a benefit show for the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund, named for the late co-founder of Atlantic Records.

"The Lemon Song" was featured on the 1969 album, "Led Zeppelin II."

White, like Plant, followed up a successful band run with a solo career. His second solo album, "Lazaretto," debuted at number one on the pop charts in June 2014 and earned positive reviews.
