Robert Plant

Robert Plant (born Aug. 20, 1948) is an English vocalist and songwriter from West Bromwich who shot to global fame as the frontman of hard-rock legends Led Zeppelin, which released eight studio albums between 1969 and 1979. As a solo artist, he debuted with the 1982 album Pictures at Eleven on Zeppelin-imprint Swan Song, followed by four albums between 1983 and 1990 on self-press Es Paranza Records, which also issued the 1984 release Volume One by his ’50s-tribute supergroup The Honeydrippers.

After the release of his 1993 Fontana disc Fate of Nations, Plant reteamed with erstwhile Zeppelin-cohort Jimmy Page for the disc No Quarter, featuring select LZ chestnuts reworked with orchestral and unplugged arrangements. Their renewed partnership ultimately yielded Walking Into Clarksdale, an album of new originals released on Mercury in 1998. A decade later, Plant collaborated with American bluegrass singer/songwriter Alison Krauss on the award-winning Rounder release Raising Sand.
