Robert Anthony Plant CBE is an English singer, lyricist, and musician. He is best known as the former lead singer of the now-disbanded rock band Led Zeppelin. Known for his powerful and wide vocal range, Plant has established himself as one of the most influential music artists of all time. He has won numerous awards, including seven Grammys. Plant grew up in Kidderminster, Worcestershire and developed a deep love for rock and roll at an early age. Inspired by Elvis Presley, he used to emulate his mannerisms as a child. He also accumulated a strong passion for blues music. At the age of 16, he left home and became part of the English Midlands blues scene. During this period, he joined one group after another while simultaneously furthering his musical knowledge. In 1968, he joined Jimmy Page in the earliest rendition of Led Zeppelin. The band went on to release nine studio albums and, as one of the most successful, innovative, and influential rock groups in history, effectively and drastically changed the music industry forever. Since Led Zeppelin’s disbandment in 1980, Plant has built up a successful solo career for himself. Furthermore, he has been a member of the bands Strange Sensation, Band of Joy, and Sensational Space Shifters and has collaborated with bluegrass star Alison Krauss. Plant also regularly works with Page, his old bandmate.
