Going to Q107

Last Friday the Jason Bonham Led Zeppelin Experience was here in Toronto in advance of their show Saturday night. They appeared on Kim Mitchell's afternoon drive time radio show, where they played Going to California:

Nice mandolin playing Stephen LeBlanc!

For those unfamiliar, Kim Mitchell was the frontman for a seventies band called Max Webster, and had a successful solo career in the 80's. Unfortunately, seventies rock star, successful 80's solo career in Canada means day job in 2011. Rock and roll just doesn't pay the same up here as it does elsewhere.

Not being a fan, one of my favourite moments on his radio show was when he was interviewing Robert Plant during the Mighty Rearranger tour, and Plant gave a classic sarcastic response to what he perceived to be a stupid question.
