Stairway to Snowdonia: Rapping with Robert Plant

Barney Hoskyns, Rock's Backpages, October 2003

Resisting attempts to coast on the Zep legend, Percy has trodden his own singular path through techno-rock, retro-folk and worldbeat eclecticism. Barney Hoskyns travelled to Wales to discuss jump-blues, Haight-Ashbury, Afro-Celts, and the singer’s forthcoming two-CD anthology, ’66 to Timbuktu.
