Born on this day 60 years ago, he is the voice and face of Led Zeppelin. When I was very young I, and I have met many since who think so, thought he was the guy Led Zeppelin.
Besides Led Zeppelin he has a solo career that spans over 25 years, 8 albums, plus an EP of R&B classics under the band name "The Honeydrippers." Most recently he has done a successful collaboration with bluegrass singer Alison Krauss.
Welcome to your pension years Mr. Plant. Perhaps it's time for that one last big tour, you know, while there's still time.
