Details of Robert Plant and the Ticket Luck value
Known for his powerful style, often mystical lyrics, and wide vocal range, Robert Anthony Plant (born August 20, 1948, West Bromwich, West Midlands, England), is an English rock singer and songwriter, famous for his membership in the English rock band Led Zeppelin as the lead vocalist, as well as for his successful solo career. As the lead singer of Led Zeppelin he is often defined as the quintessential rock front man, combining rare musical adeptness and knowledge with a large measure of stage bravado. As a solo artist, following Led Zeppelin's break up after the death of John Bonham, he is often credited for his wide range of musical taste and his ability to perform an eclectic range of songs in a refined manner.
Plant was born in West Bromwich but grew up in Halesowen, formerly Worcestershire. He left school in his mid-teens and developed a strong passion for the blues, mainly through his admiration for Elvis Presley and his early rendition of songs in this genre, then abandoning training as a chartered accountant after only two weeks to attend college and to become part of the Midlands blues scene. His early blues influences included artists such as Robert Johnson, Bukka White, Skip James, Jerry Miller and Sleepy John Estes. Plant did various jobs while pursuing his music. He also worked at Woolworths in Halesowen town for a short period of time. He cut three obscure singles on CBS Records and sang with a variety of bands, 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. Though his early career met with no commercial success, word quickly spread about the young man with the powerful voice.
After the breakup of Led Zeppelin in 1980, Plant pursued a successful solo career beginning with Pictures at Eleven in 1982, followed by 1983's The Principle of Moments. Popular tracks from this period include Big Log (a Top 20 hit in 1983), In the Mood (1984), Little by Little (1985), Tall Cool One (a #25 hit in 1988) and I Believe (1993), another song written for and dedicated to his late son, Karac. In 1984, Plant formed a short-lived all-star group with Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck called The Honeydrippers, who had a #3 hit with a remake of the Phil Phillips' tune, Sea of Love, along with a lesser hit with Rockin' at Midnight. Plant avoided performing Led Zeppelin songs through much of this period.
On rare occasions, Plant performed with both surviving members of Led Zeppelin: In 1985 for Live Aid, 1988 for Atlantic Records 40th anniversary, 1995 when the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and 10 December 2007 to honour the memory of Atlantic Records cofounder Ahmet Ertegun, the last three with Bonham's son Jason filling in on drums. Additionally, Plant, Jones, and Page attended and performed at Jason's wedding in 1990.
Through the 1980s and 1990s, Plant co-wrote three solo albums with keyboardist/songwriter Phil Johnstone. It was Johnstone who talked Plant into playing Zeppelin songs in his live shows, something Plant had resisted, not wanting to be forever known as the former Led Zeppelin vocalist. Plant first collaborated with Jimmy Page post-Zeppelin in the studio on the 1988 Page solo effort, Outrider. He later collaborated with Page on the 1998 album, Walking into Clarksdale, which features all original material from the pair. Starting at the close of 1999, Plant performed at several small venues with his folk-rock band, named Priory of Brion.In 2001, Plant appeared on Afro Celt Sound System's album Volume 3: Further in Time. The song Life Begin Again features a duet with Welsh folksinger Julie Murphy, emphasizing Plant's recurring interest in Welsh culture.In 2002, with his then newly-formed band Strange Sensation, Plant released a widely acclaimed collection of mostly blues and folk remakes, Dreamland. Contrasting with this lush collection of often relatively obscure remakes, the second album with Strange Sensation, Mighty Rearranger (2005), contains new, original songs. Both have received some of the most favorable reviews of Plant's solo career and four Grammy nominations, two in 2003 and two in 2006.
Plant enjoyed great success with Led Zeppelin throughout the 1970s and developed a compelling image as the charismatic rock-and-roll front man much like Roger Daltrey of The Who and Jim Morrison of The Doors. With his mane of long blond hair and powerful, bare-chested appearance, Plant helped perhaps more than any other artist to create the god of rock and roll or rock god archetype. On stage, Robert was particularly active in live performances, often dancing, jumping, snapping his fingers, clapping, making emphatic gestures to emphasize a lyric or cymbal crash, throwing back his head, or placing his hands on his hips. As the 1970s progressed he, along with the other members of Led Zeppelin, became increasingly flamboyant onstage and wore more elaborate, colorful clothing and jewelry. In 1975, he was reported to have exclaimed the phrase I am a Golden god! from the balcony of the Continental Hyatt House in Los Angeles,
Plant's lyrics are often mystical, philosophical and spiritual, alluding to events in classical and Norse mythology, such as the Immigrant Song, which refers to Valhalla and Viking conquests. However, the song No Quarter is often misunderstood to refer to the god Thor; the song actually refers to Mount Thor (which is named after the god). Another example is The Rain Song, which contains allusions to various pagan rituals.
Plant was also influenced by J. R. R. Tolkien, whose book series inspired lyrics in some early Led Zeppelin songs. Most notably the Battle of Evermore, Misty Mountain Hop and Ramble On all contain verses referencing Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. Conversely, Plant sometimes used more straightforward blues-based lyrics as in The Lemon Song, Trampled Under Foot, and Black Dog.
