Robert Plant 1972 Caricature, illustrated here on June 23, 1972 at the San Diego Sports Arena, age 24.
Plant is an English singer, songwriter, and musician, best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the rock band Led Zeppelin.
Plant is regarded as one of the greatest singers in the history of rock and roll, his career spanning over 50 years.
Plant’s early blues influences included Willie Dixon, Robert Johnson, Bukka White, Skip James, Jerry Miller, and Sleepy John Estes.
Plant had various jobs while pursuing his music career, including the Crawling King Snakes, which brought him into contact with drummer John Bonham. They both went on to play in the Band of Joy, merging blues with newer psychedelic trends.
In 1968, With a shared passion for music, Plant and Jimmy Page immediately developed a strong relationship, formed a band and began their writing collaboration with reworkings of earlier blues songs.
Plant received no songwriting credits on the band’s first album, allegedly because he was still under contract to CBS Records at the time.
Plant brought along John Bonham as drummer, and they were joined by John Paul Jones, who had previously worked with Page as a studio musician. Jones called Page on the phone before they checked out Plant, and Page hired Jones immediately.
Initially dubbed the “New Yardbirds”, the band soon came to be known as Led Zeppelin.
Plant enjoyed great success with Led Zeppelin throughout the 1970s and developed a compelling image as the charismatic rock-and-roll front man, similar to his contemporaries, the Who singer Roger Daltrey, Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones and Jim Morrison of the Doors. With his mane of long blond hair and powerful, bare-chested appearance, Plant helped to create the “god of rock and roll” or “rock god” archetype.
He currently resides at Shatterford, near Bewdley in the Wyre Forest District of Worcestershire.
