Pat Monahan performs brilliantly on Stern ... again

I only caught about the last half of Howard's interview on today's show with Pat and his solo bandmates (not Train), but I was lucky enough to catch Pat's performances of his new single, "Her Eyes," as well as Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" and Stevie Wonder's "Superstition."

In a word, wow. This guy can sing. His original song was great, and he's a dead ringer for Robert Plant in the vocal department on Zeppelin covers, hitting all of the high notes and picking out the vocal accents that are a signature of Plant's. "Superstition" was good too -- his new band really nails the songs.

I found this when searching for info on "Superstition." It's a great performance of the song by Wonder on Sesame Street. I'm guessing mid-1970's. Watch for the kids dancing, especially the kid behind the band who shakes his mop of hair around, really getting into it. Great stuff.
