BIOGRAPHY:

Prior to Hobbstweedle (a pickup blues band formed to honour a gig at West Midlands College Of Education) Robert was the frontman for The Band of Joy - featuring Percy, John Bonham, Paul Lockey (bass), Chris Brown (keyboards) and Kevyn Gammond (guitar). The BOJ were on verge of making a record deal when they split a little acrinmoniously. This led to Rob eventually joining Led Zeppelin after a few blind alleys. The rest is history.


TRIVIA:
  • (14 November 2006) 'Led Zeppelin' (qv) were inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame for their outstanding contribution to British music and integral part of British music culture.
  • 'Elvis Presley' (qv) once teased him about not owning his own plane - Elvis asked where 'Led Zeppelin' (qv) got the jet. "We rented it from Caesar's Palace" said Plant. "I own mine" replied Elvis.
  • Also had a successful solo singing career.
  • In the years following 'Led Zeppelin' (qv)'s break up, 'Jimmy Page (I)' (qv) would not allow anyone else to sing "Stairway to Heaven." Page felt that Plant was the only person who could do the song justice.
  • It's relatively unknown that the boys from 'Led Zeppelin' (qv) and 'Elvis Presley' (qv) became quite friendly in the 1970s. They met on numerous occasion and 'Led Zeppelin' (qv) attended at least two Elvis concerts, sitting front row center.
  • During a break from the 1975 American tour, Plant and his family were seriously injured in a jeep wreck. This not only caused the remainder of the tour to be cancelled, but it also prevented the band from filming additional footage for their concert film _The Song Remains the Same (1976)_ (qv).
  • He suffered a breakdown following the death of his five-year-old son Karac. The 'Led Zeppelin' (qv) hit "All of My Love" and Plant's solo hit "I Believe" are dedicated to Karac.
  • Played in a band called Hobbstweeble prior to 'Led Zeppelin' (qv), and the 'Honeydrippers' after 'Led Zeppelin' (qv).
