Robert plant dating
NEW YORK — Think about Robert Plant and the images of the "golden god" come to mind — the thick, blonde hair, sparkling blue eyes, slim physique — combined with a bluesy yelp that practically defined the raw power of rock 'n' roll.
While his face may show signs of age at 66, much of his rock-star look remains intact.
You can see why Plant can't be doing with the much-demanded Led Zeppelin reunion. I think about how the Brill Building affected me as a kid and how songwriting teams like Lieber & Stoller, and Pomus & Shuman, and Goffin & King kept the teenagers of the English speaking world happy for years, but for my time and the time I've been making music it's all been about cause and effect.
Rather than re-tread old ground, Plant is forging ever forward while still retaining the exploratory vision that made his former alma mater such a unique proposition. So Led Zeppelin III, probably for me, was about picking up different clues.
Now living back in the UK after spending several years residing in Austin, Texas, Plant is, appropriately enough for a Wolves fan, as much of a musical wanderer as he is a geographical one.
With his current band, The Sensational Space Shifters – that'll be guitarists Justin Adams and Liam 'Skin' Tyson, bassist Billy Fuller, drummer Dave Smith, electronics wizard John Baggott and Gambian musician Juldeh Camara on kologo and riti – Plant has released Lullaby And… His most fully realized solo album to date, it binds together the musical strands that have fascinated him over the decades whilst doing much to belie his reputation as the wailing Golden God who rampaged across the America of the 70s with all the gusto of a Viking raiding party.
More importantly, he aims to stay artistically creative rather than become a nostalgia act.
The man who belted out Rock and Roll and Stairway to Heaven in the 1970s turns down lucrative offers to stage Led Zeppelin reunions.
As previously reported, Plant and Griffin are planning a Band of Joy album for 2013 that will be “far, far out with psychedelic pedal steel and all sorts of stuff.” They are also part of a “spacey, trippy” group called the Sensational Shape Shifters, who have been performing this summer.
When Robert Plant said he’d eloped with Patty Griffin, he didn’t actually mean he’d married her.
That’s what a rep for the former Led Zeppelin singer tells the Hollywood Reporter.
"There were Deadheads, and it was a good place to be," he says. …That is what I want."Led Zeppelin broke up in 1980, and Plant immediately embarked on a successful solo career.
His true creative breakout may have been 2007's teaming with bluegrass icon Alison Krauss for Raising Sand, a platinum album that won six Grammy Awards (including album of the year) and garnered him heaps of critical praise for a perceived change in sound.
