Robert Anthony Plant was born on August 20, 1948, in West Bromwich, Staffordshire, England. Right from a young age, he was passionate about singing and music and followed Elvis Presley as his role model.

In his mid-teens, Plant quit King Edward VI Grammar School for Boys after developing a passion for blues music. Robert moved out of his parent's house at 16 to attend college and explore the local blues scene.

Robert had started studying to become a chartered accountant at his father's urging, but he stopped after two weeks.

After working with Woolworths in Halesowen and Wimpey construction company, he made three singles with CBS Records. He then started singing for bands like Crawling King Snake, where he met future Led Zeppelin bandmate John Bonham. Before they joined Led Zeppelin, Robert and John were in the band Band of Joy together.

Singing career

When he first met Robert Plant, Jimmy Page was seeking a lead vocalist for his band, the New Yardbirds. Jimmy requested Robert to join the group after hearing him perform "Somebody to Love" by the Jefferson Airplane.

Plant sang lead for The New Yardbirds, which ultimately evolved into Led Zeppelin and featured Page on guitar, John Paul Jones on bass, and John Bonham on drums.

In 1969, the band signed a deal with Atlantic Records and released their debut album, "Led Zeppelin," which reached #6 on the U.K. charts and #10 on the U.S. charts. 

Following the success of the first album, they went on with other albums that include,

  • Houses of the Holy(1973)
  • Physical Graffiti (1975)
  • In Through the Out Door (1979)
  • The Song Remains the Same (1976)
  • Stairway to Heaven (1971)

Personal life

While Plant was on tour with Led Zeppelin in 1977, Karac died suddenly from a stomach virus; a grieving Robert then penned "All My Love" in remembrance of his cherished son.
