Age isn’t necessarily a problem though. Robert Plant celebrates his 65th birthday and, while a little more haggard than when he was the poster boy for Led Zep, he’s still got what it takes.
Sadly, I never got to see Led Zeppelin perform – I’m not quite old enough for that. If he keeps going as he is, though, there’s still a good chance I’ll get to see Robert Plant one day.
Below is Plant performing at last year’s Grammies with Alison Krauss performing a medley of three songs from their 2007 collaboration Raising Sand:
Not bad for a man who – as a UK citizen – can today collect his free bus pass.
If you prefer the old stuff, though, here’s the 2 hour 17 minute film of their Madison Square Gardens concert from 1973, complete with interviews and one or two classic songs.
So, happy birthday, Robert – you’re looking damn good for a man who’s had more than 40 years as a rock god!
And as it’s such a glorious day, how about some real summer sounds?
Found this lot via a FB recommendation from my second cousin (who’s also a guitarist!).
