Plant has A Whole Lotta Love for Capaldi

Robert Plant spoke about his friendship with Jim Capaldi at the launch of Genesis limited edition MR FANTASY last week.

'There was a carefree, poignant nature to what he was singing about. When I saw him, he was just joyous. We were surrounded by all these celebrated figures who ... the spark wasn't there. But he had the spark. And I've got the spark. So when we saw each other it was like, 'Okay, I get it.'' - Robert Plant speaking to Classic Rock Magazine.

Before his death in 2005, Jim Capaldi asked his friend Robert Plant to write the foreword for the book of lyrics he was planning with Genesis Publications and his wife Aninha. Now, Jim's vision is completed, with recollections from 40 legendary contributors as well as a foreword and signature from Robert Plant.
