Biography/History

Robert Plant (1948-present): a Musician from West Bromwich, Staffordshire, UK.

R

obert Anthony Plant CBE (born 20 August 1948; vocals) is an English singer, songwriter and musician, best known as the lead singer and lyricist of Led Zeppelin.

Under his tenure with Led Zeppelin, Plant received much success through the late 1960s to the end of the 1970s. He developed a compelling image as the charismatic rock-and-roll front man, comparable to Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones, Roger Daltrey of The Who, Jim Morrison of the Doors, or Freddie Mercury of Queen. His long blond hair and bare-chested appearance did not go unnoticed in the music world with Plant helping to create the "rock god" archetype.

After Led Zeppelin dissolved in 1980, Plant occasionally collaborated with Jimmy Page on various projects in later years, including forming a short-lived supergroup with Page and Jeff Beck in 1984, called the Honeydrippers. The Honeydrippers released an album called The Honeydrippers: Volume One, and a number 3 hit with a remake of Phil Phillips' track Sea of Love, plus a follow-up hit with a cover of Roy Brown's Rockin' at Midnight.

In 2008, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him 15 on their list of the 100 best singers of all time. In 2011, readers of that same magazine ranked Plant the greatest of all lead singers. In 2006, Hit Parader magazine named Plant the "Greatest Metal vocalsist of All Time".
