Robert Plant is celebrating his 74th birthday today. Plant is regarded as one of the greatest singers in the history of rock and roll and he has influenced countless other singers. In 2006, Heavy Metal magazine Hit Parader named Plant the "Greatest Metal Vocalist of All Time". In 2009, Plant was voted "the greatest voice in rock" in a poll conducted by Planet Rock. In 2008, Rolling Stone editors ranked him number 15 on their list of the 100 best singers of all time. In 2011, Rolling Stone readers ranked Plant the greatest of all lead singers.

Would you put Robert at the top of your list, top 5, top 20 or no mention?

Happy Birthday Mr. Plant!!!

Led Zeppelin released their eighth studio LP "In Through the Out Door" on Aug. 15, 1979. It was their final album of entirely new material. It was recorded over a three-week period in November and December 1978 at ABBA's Polar Studios in Stockholm, Sweden. It was the last album released by the band before the death of drummer John Bonham in 1980.

The album was named by the group to describe its recent struggles amidst the death of Robert Plant's son Karac in 1977, and the taxation exile the band took from the UK. The exile resulted in the band being unable to tour on British soil for over two years, and trying to get back into the public mind was therefore like "trying to get in through the 'out' door."

In contrast to previous Led Zeppelin albums, "In Through the Out Door" had a much greater influence on the part of bassist and keyboardist John Paul Jones and vocalist Robert Plant. John Paul Jones has said it was "mainly because I had a new toy. I had this big new keyboard. And Robert and I just got to rehearsals early, basically. With Zeppelin writing, if you came up with good things, and everybody agreed that they were good things, they got used. There was no formula for writing. So Robert and I, by the time everybody turned up for rehearsals, we’d written three or four songs. So we started rehearsing those immediately, because they were something to be getting on with."

Being their 8th LP, did you still have the same fondness for the band as you did when they released their first couple of LP's?

Happy 43rd Birthday to "In Through The Out Door"!!!


Seven years ago today, on June 27, 2015 the music world lost Chris Squire. Chris was a founding member of, the bassist for and the only person to appear on all of the albums of Yes.

Chris has said that he was influenced by Jack Bruce and The Who's bassist John Entwistle. Entwistle also passed away on June 27th, but it was 13 years earlier in 2002.

RIP Chris. You will live on through the music you made.
