I love Robert Plant. He is in his senior years and doing what he wants to do to make himself happy. Geez he’s 70.
Yall need to give it a rest about Zeppelin. If you want to hear Zeppelin go buy the concert. Yall don’t own his life because decades ago he was in a blues rock band. Leave the man be. Robert Plant still has a
Feels good, but a bit like Robert still playing out his Appalachian harmonies out with his Marches new chums. Also, painfully evident the boy still loves to rock…so why fight it Robert, you are better than anybody else at that so just rock it a bit more. Nice though !
Great night in StAlbans on 22nd Feb. Can’t wait for the chance to see them again.
Hope they are on tour soon
