Sensational Space Shifters guitarist Justin Adams (temporarily) steals the show from Robert Plant during their performance of ‘Fixin’ to Die’ at the 2015 Mountain Jam Festival.

He’ll be forever associated with Jimmy Page. But Robert Plant‘s memorable onstage collaboration with Justin Adams at Mountain Jam 2015 proves all over again what a great bandmate the former Led Zeppelin frontman still is.

Watch as Plant, appearing with Adams on “Funny in My Mind (I Believe I’m Fixin’ to Die),” surrenders the spotlight for the guitarist’s rockabilly-infused solo . It’s clear how much fun Plant is having as he joins the crowd in marveling over Justin Adams’ out-sized swagger. Watch the above clip to see just Adams’ solo portion of the song.

Their musical relationship was forged over multiple solo projects, beginning with 2002′s Dreamland and continuing through subsequent Robert Plant efforts like 2005′s Mighty ReArranger and 2014′s lullaby andthe Ceaseless Roar. Adams and Plant shared co-writing credit on “Funny in My Mind,” Dreamland ’s opening track and a rewrite of Delta bluesman Bukka White’s ”Fixin’ to Die Blues.”

Plant also mixed tracks from lullaby, choice covers and a menu of re-imagined Led Zeppelin classics including “Black Dog,” “What Is and What Should Never Be” and “Dazed and Confused” during his Mountain Jam show. Fans who missed out on this stop.
