ROBERT PLANT To Recreate THE HONEYDRIPPERS For U.K. Benefit Shows

January 7, 2007

Britain's's Express & Star reports that Robert Plant will recreate his group THE HONEYDRIPPERS in one of two major coups for a Dudley club.

JBs host the former LED ZEPPELIN frontman and return of THE HONEYDRIPPERS on Valentine's Day.

It is unclear who will be in THE HONEYDRIPPERS' lineup, but the band's album from 1984 featured LED ZEPPELIN guitarist Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck, who has been described by Eric Clapton as "the best guitarist around."

That release celebrated Plant's first musical love, with covers of rock songs from the 1950s and 60s

The concert, billed as "An Evening Of Rhythm And Blues", will help pay for his friend, Kidderminster woman Jackie Jennings, to have life-saving Proton Beam therapy in Boston.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. on the night and tickets are £15.

Jennings, who has a 10-year-old daughter, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2003 and under went surgery in January 2004 to have it removed.

But the tumor returned and doctors say the only treatment now available is a proton beam therapy at a hospital in Boston. The cost is around £100,000 and is believed to offer a cure.
