If “all” Robert Plant ever did was to serve as the lead singer for Led Zeppelin, his place among the greats in rock history would be assured. However, any notions that Plant was merely a pretty-boy frontman following guitarist Jimmy Page’s directions during that group’s legendary time together — which a simple look at their songwriting credits prove are rubbish — have been long dashed by his long, successful and remarkably restless solo career.
