When the British Recording Industry Trust (BRIT)Awards were first handed out in 1977, Robert Plant and Led Zeppelin were among the biggest bands in the world. However, Led Zeppelin was not nominated then, or later, and no member of Led Zeppelin has ever been nominated.
Thirty-four years on, Robert Plant is finally up for a Brit Award for Best British Male Solo Artist. Plant is going against Mark Ronson, Paul Weller, Plan B and Tinie Tempah.
The BRIT’s will be awarded Feb 15 at the 02 arena, a building Plant has triumphed in once before. Perhaps he can go 2 for 2.
