Whole Lotta Love at 65

The GTC would like to give a Whole Lotta Love to Robert Anthony Plant today on his 65th birthday!

Since most of the civilized world knows all about your wonderful music making in Band of Joy, Led Zeppelin, The Honeydrippers, Page & Plant and that ball of fire solo career, we thought we’d share some of your most interesting quotes! 

“My vocal style I haven’t tried to copy from anyone. It just developed until it became the girlish whine it is today.” – Robert Plant
“I think I could sing and shear a few sheep at the same time.” – Robert Plant
“It may become Bob as time goes on. My dad was a Bob and his father was a Bob. That seems to be the sort of cheery thing that you do to octogenarians, but not yet, no.” – Robert Plant
“No, I’ve never thought that I was gay. And that’s not something you think. It’s something you know.” – Robert Plant
“I’m pleased with how ridiculous I am. I like me. Though I’m not a huge fan. I know when to switch me off.” – Robert Plant
“I may as well do everything as if it’s brand new. And if I start to feel that any of it’s a compromise, then I’ll…I’ll be in Wisconsin.” – Robert Plant
“I realized what Led Zeppelin was about around the end of our first U.S. tour. We started off not even on the bill in Denver, and by the time we got to New York we were second to Iron Butterfly, and they didn’t want to go on!” – Robert Plant
