Personal Quote:

People confuse Led Zeppelin with what came after them, as if they were a heavy metal band. But the incantations that Robert Plant was singing were drawn from the Delta and the Appalachian mountains. It was music of the mud and earth. They had many gears they could go up, but at its essence was something raw and true and authentic. See more »


Was a member of Bob Dylan's "Rolling Thunder Review" in 1975. See more »


As songwriter, he is known for clever lyrics and themes of spirituality and political comment. See more »
