Happy 64th Birthday to Robert Plant!

Born on August 20, 1948, Robert Plant is regarded as one of the most significant vocalists in the history of rock music. He has influenced the style of many singers - Freddie Mercury, Geddy Lee, Ann Wilson, Jeff Buckley, Axl Rose, and Jack White, just to name a few. In 2008, Rolling Stone named Plant as number 15 on their list of the 100 Greatest Singers of All-Time. More recently, in 2011, a Rolling Stone readers' pick placed Plant in first place of the magazine's "Best Lead Singers of All Time".

Robert Plant gets a great deal of recognition for being the vocalist and lyricist of Led Zeppelin, but he continues to be a highly successful artist through to the present day. With a career spanning more than 40 years, he has stayed relevant with solo and collaborative work, as well as with the bands he has formed. At the time of this writing, Plant's current band is the Sensational Space Shifters. -Ravenval
