Happy 62nd Birthday…

August 20th, 2010

Bob Plant

I have alternatively praised and buried Robert Plant in this site. As the front man for Led Zeppelin, Plant headed the greatest rock band ever (don’t bother, no dissension from this view will be tolerated). As a solo artist, he has had a varied career. After his second solo album he changed gears dramatically, and disastrously. Many friends at the time told him, don’t change, you are almost there again.

But one thing Plant has never done is stand still. I disagree with many of his musical choices, dislike his choice not to tour with a reformed Led Zeppelin, and think his voice is almost certainly not what it once was (hence, his refusal to tour with Zeppelin). But he has always done what he wants, always made music with integrity, and for that alone he deserves praise.

But most of all, Robert Plant gets annual birthday wishes for Dec 10, 2007. The night. And as usual, for his birthday I wish him a wonderful year with much travelling and surrounded by old friends.

Birthday Wishes ,

    Led Zeppelin 2 is, IMHO, one of the top five albums of all time…maybe the top one! Absolutely masterful in every sense of the word.

    And Robert Plant definitely is the very best white blues singer ever!

    When Plant and Page do their thing with music, it’s pure magic!

    Just doesn’t get any better, eh!

    Oh, great! Now I’ve got “Immigrant Song” stuck running in my head for the last couple hours!

    I dunno if they were the greatest R n’ R band in the world, a lot of Stones fans might disagree,however,Led Zeppelin was my favourite.

    Saw ’em live five times, loved every minute of it.

    happy birthday,Robert,best wishes.

    Damn, and I thought Pink Floyd was the best rock band ever? Now I have to fight it out in my mind again… arggghh.
