Robert Plant.

”Robert is unique. We’re all unique really, but Robert is really something. I couldn’t imagine any other singer with us. I just couldn’t. Robert is Robert and there’s nothing else to say.”

– John Paul Jones, 1970

Ladies and gentlemen, a very serious part of the night has now arrived, where I nip off to the dressing room to get a blow job.

[…] The blow job, by the way, was fantastic…

[…] We’d like to dedicate this to our manager, Peter Grant, who’s made so many things possible. He’s the man who gives us the blow job in the dressing room.

Interviewer: After all these years, how on earth have you managed to keep your hair like that?

Robert Plant: Well, I don’t know. We could be quite serious about it. I just have been very lucky. My mother was a gypsy, and she had a lot of dark blood in her, and her hair was very, very thick—she couldn’t even get a brush through it. So I have been very fortunate. And every time I go to cut it off, hairdressers refuse to do it.

“Ah… the god of fertility I think, although I don’t know his name. Perhaps it was Plant.”

“Ah… the god of fertility I think, although I don’t know his name. Perhaps it was Plant.”

Robert Plant, when asked by Stephen Demorest which Norse god he would be. (Circus Magazine, June 1975)

“It’s about intention. I rejoice in my previous work but must continue the journey to new worlds, after all there are so many songs that are yet to be written.”

Robert Plant, August 2017.

“On the very last day of his life, as we drove to the rehearsal, he was not quite as happy as he…”

“On the very last day of his life, as we drove to the rehearsal, he was not quite as happy as he could be. He said, “I’ve had it with playing drums. Everybody plays better than me.” We were driving in the car and he pulled off the sun visor and threw it out the window as he was talking. He said, “I’ll tell you what, when we get to the rehearsal, you play the drums and I’ll sing.” And that was our last rehearsal”

“I used to go to this club [in Manhattan] called Steve Paul’s The Scene. Every group that came to New York from England used to go there. And I’d seen this guy. He wasn’t famous yet. Led Zeppelin had just formed. [It was 1968.] I thought this guy was gorgeous, and I knew he liked me. But every groupie in New York was after him. Finally, the night of his show, we were in a restaurant next door. He was there and I was there, and he came over.”

“Musically, we were very proud of our capabilities as a rhythm section. We’d listen and leave space…”

“Musically, we were very proud of our capabilities as a rhythm section. We’d listen and leave space for ourselves. There was a great deal of mutual respect. We were always incredibly locked in – phrasing the same and always coming to the same musical conclusion. The empathy we had when we played was always incredibly exhilarating. But then I was fortunate. I was playing with the best drummer I’d ever known, and I’d know most of them…”

John Paul Jones on John Bonham

“On Highway 80, just south of Fairfield, the bus broke down and required a half-hour stop, but Linda…”

“On Highway 80, just south of Fairfield, the bus broke down and required a half-hour stop, but Linda wasn’t disturbed. She talked about Led Zeppelin. ‘Andrew Gold from the band is indoctrinating me,’ she said. ‘Their stuff is like insect music to me. I can’t listen for a long time without getting a headache, but I’m getting to understand it.’ A little later she asked a question of no one in particular: ‘What’s Plant look like? That’s such a great name for someone who sings like that.’”
