Many will instantly recognise the vocals of Robert Plant, with his trademark high screeching vocals that made him famous with former band Led Zeppelin. One of the most influential vocalists of all time, he has since carved out a phenomenal solo-career, and with a career that has spanned over 40 years, not many have achieved the heights of Robert Plant.
Born in West Bromwich, England Robert Plant grew up in Kidderminster, and cites Elvis Pressley as one of his key influences when he was a young singer. He would eventually formed Led Zeppelin with Jimmy Paige in the late 1960s, and despite early set –backs, the band would go on to become on of the greatest of all time.
Plant found massive successes with led Zeppelin, but the untimely death of drummer John Bonham in 1980 would force the band to come to the decision that they simply could not continue with Bonham behind the drums, and in 1980.
Robert Plant would release his first solo album a few years post Led Zep, with ‘Pictures at Eleven’ being well received and selling well after its release in 1982. A second record followed in 1983, with ‘The Principle of Moments ‘, followed by a collaborative effort with former band mate jimmy Page as well as guitarist Jeff Beck. ‘The Honeydrippers’ came out in 1984 and was another well received album for Plant, and would not be the last time he would collaborate with former band mates or other artists.
He and Page would often work together on albums or live converts such as the famous Band-Aid charity concert in 1985. Following this, he would release is 3rd studio album as well as helping Page on his debut record. Manic nirvana followed in 1990, and was Plants most successful solo record to date, reaching 13th in the album charts.
With each album a more experimental sound was tried from Plant, having previously dabbled with styles such as hip-hop,’ Fate of Nation’s had a more folk style flowing through it. Following this, he and Page would again work together, releasing the popular ‘Clarksdale’ in 1998, which netted the men a Grammy award for Best Hard Rock Performance for the single ‘Most High’.
The 2000s have seen steady releases from Plant, with each one testing and trying out new styles and sounds. Most of these have been very well received, particularly 2005s ‘Might Rearranger’, which blended various world music together. Another collaborative effort, this time with country singer Alison Kraus, netted the pair 5 Grammys, and was met with widespread critical acclaim with the 2009 release of’ Raising Sand’.
With a recent release in 2014, Robert Plant continues to show why he is one of the most influential singers of all time. Having worked together with a wide range of artists from different genres, he has constantly evolved his sound and style, never happy to settle for something mundane e and repetitive. For this reason he has maintained his popularity as one of the best rock performers for over 4 decades, and looks like he could go on for a few more.
