Watch Robert Plant’s Moving Tribute To Low’s Mimi Parker
Saving Grace covered Low’s “Everybody’s Song” and “Monkey.”
Robert Plant and Saving Grace paid tribute to Low drummer Mimi Parker following her death on Saturday from ovarian cancer. The Led Zeppelin frontman covered two Low songs on Sunday night at King’s Theatre in Glasgow, Scotland.
Saving Grace features Robert Plant accompanied by vocalist Suzi Dian, drummer Oli Jefferson and multi-instrumentalists Tony Kelsey and Matt Worley. Plant led the group through covers of “Monkey” and “Everybody’s Song,” both of which appeared on Low’s 2005 album The Great Destroyer.
Mimi Parker co-founded Low with her husband Alan Sparhawk in 1993. They released 13 albums between 1994 and 2021. Parker revealed she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2020. She was 55.
Plant recorded a cover of “Monkey” for his 2010 album, Band Of Joy that also featured a cover of the The Great Destroyer track “Silver Rider.” During Sunday’s concert in Glasgow, Plant spoke to the audience, stating:
“We’ve been together a while, on and off, in between all the other stuff. We’ve been drawn to the music of the great duo Low, from Duluth, Minnesota. Sadly, tonight we know that unfortunately, we’ve lost one of those two people. So we give our songs tonight to Mimi and Alan. They’ve been such an inspiration for me, for a long, long time, since I was born.”
