Planet Rock Year End Poll

London radio station Planet Rock had listener voting throughout December in their annual year end poll and Led Zeppelin related acts faired well.

Band of the Year was Black Country Communion, of whom Planet Rock said:
bcc-logoThe first rule of supergroups is that they are[sic] must be a crushing disappointment. Black Country Communion obviously didn’t get the memo and despite playing just two unbelievable concerts this year they have beaten several very big bands to win this category by some margin. An excellent album, several musicians at the top of their game and a bunch of songs that put the classic in classic rock. More please. Much, much more.

Black Country Communion also won New Band of the Year and third in Album of the Year. Robert Plant followed in the latter category with Band of Joy being voted #5 Album of the Year. Plant's Band of Joy also came in #8 for Live Act of the Year.

On top of Black Country Communion's success, BCC guitarist Joe Bonamassa topped the Best Live Act and Guitar Hero of 2010.

Other Led Zeppelin wins are It Might Get Loud taking #5 in the Film of the Year honours. It Might Get Loud was a guitarist movie with Jimmy Page, The Edge and Jack White.

The final category, Hope for 2011, went to "Led Zeppelin Reunion." I'll join them in hoping for that.
