Robert Plantmusician, singer, song writer
Birthplace: West Bromwich, Staffordshire, England
Robert Plant's voice helped establish Led Zeppelin as one of rock's legendary bands. Plant started crafting his screeching voice in the 1960s while singing with bands like The Crawling King Snakes and The Band of Joy. His performances also sparked an invitation to join Led Zeppelin, with whom Plant made rock anthems like “Whole Lotta Love” and “You Shook Me.” Plant and other band members pursued solo careers after the band broke up in the 1980s. Plant rejoined Jimmy Page in 1994 to perform and record new and old tunes.
