Robert Plant Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Robert Anthony Plant was born on 20 August 1948 in the town of West Bromwich, Staffordshire  England. A rock legend in the truest sense, the English musician, singer and songwriter is famous across the world – primarily as the former lead singer and lyricist of the legendary rock band “Led Zeppelin”. A constant favourite among rock fans, Robert Plant was named the “Rolling Stone” readership’s #1 lead singer of all time, and the magazine’s editors placed him #15 on the “100 Greatest Singers of All Time” list. Touring first alongside fellow “Led Zeppelin” members Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and John Bonham, and then alone, Robert Plant has had an enormous influence on the world of rock, and his magnum opus – “Stairway to Heaven”, co-composed with Jimmy Page – is widely considered to be one of the greatest songs of all time.

So just how rich is Robert Plant,? Plant’s fame is reflected by his astonishing net worth, which is estimated by authoritative sources to reach up to $170 million, built on his hugely successful career as a singer and songwriter.

Robert Plant was born into a family with descent on his mother’s side going back to Romanchai ancestors. Robert became drawn to rock and roll, and singing in general, from a very young age. Plant has been quoted as saying that, when he was ten years old, the future rock legend would often hide behind the curtains at home and pretend to be Elvis Presley. Some years later, Robert Plant would quickly abandon his studiesto become an accountant to pursue a career in music, moving from band to band and discovering his own particular tastes and preferences. It was during these early years that Plant first met his future “Led Zeppelin” partner, the drummer John Bonham, and they played together for a time in the “Band of Joy”. Together, the two would join Jimmy Page in 1968 in forming the band that would come to define rock.

First called “The New Yardbirds” after guitarist Jimmy Page’s successful old band, the four legends would soon become known by the name of “Led Zeppelin”, and in 1969 they released their first, self-titled album, which was a huge success and propelled the band to worldwide recognition. Plant was already actively involved in the song-writing process for “Zeppelin” back then, but was not credited for his work on the first album – possibly because of Plant’s obligations to his old recording label, “CBS Records”. Whatever the case, Robert Plant took full interest in composing for the band’s second album, and he would quickly become famous for his particular style. Plant’s lyrics are reputed to have an almost mythological quality to them, and the rock legend has made it no secret he draws from sources ranging from Norse mythology to American blues music. After “Led Zeppelin” disbanded in 1980, Plant continued to perform solo, and his solo career has certainly made a considerable contribution to Plant’s net worth.

Robert Plant  continues to record music and perform live to this day. As recently as 2009, Plant was awarded a Grammy for his album “Raising Sand”, proving his career is far from over.

In his private life Robert Plant married Maureen Wilson in 1968, and the couple had three children before divorcing in 1983 – their son Karac died in 1977. Robert later had a son with Maureen’s sister Sirley in 1991. Today Robert lives in Austin, Texas, with the famous American singer and songwriter Patty Griffin.

#Quote
1A drummer contacted me and said, 'I love Bonham so much I wanna sit behind you when you sing.' It was Phil Collins. His career was just kicking in and he was the most spirited and positive and really encouraging force.
2Sad old hippies still keep their hair long because we were part of something that meant something more than just ego and income.
3[on John Bonham] Bonzo was totally and absolutely devoted to getting it right. Everything that he listened to he could go beyond, not only could he recreate it but he could take it somewhere new. He knew that he was a powerhouse among drummers... we seemed to have a great affinity for each other.
4Every band should end their show with 'Stairway To Heaven'. In fact, The Who do a very nice version of it.
5When I was a kid, I'd be there in the stands thinking: 'Come on Wolves [Wolverhampton Wanderers, his favorite soccer team], do it for me! And here I am again: 'Come on Wolves,' pleading with a borrowed laptop!
6There are far more important things than this [Band of Joy]. This is just a little bit of ear candy, really, in the great cut and thrust of things. For some people, it's just a night at the theatre. Never mind politics - it's true of everybody, just getting on with their lives. For me, it is something to do which gives me very great pleasure. Which is why I'll keep on making music, so long as it meets the standard.
7Whenever I have bid a hasty goodbye to a loved one, I've always made sure that my record collection was safely stored away in the boot of the car. Sometimes the parting was so fast, I was not able to get them into alphabetical order, but I still got away with my records, that was essential.
8I'm a singer, and there's a lot of singing in this band [of Joy]. When one sings like this, with others, the voice is good. I'm really pleased with how I sing with this band. Hell, never mind my raison d'être, what about my singing? How else am I going to feel accomplished?
9The physical topography, and the regional peculiarities of the place I come from [Kidderminster, Worcestershire, UK] is so much part of me. But I plough a lone furrow, and I do feel more and more this telepathy with south Nashville. That is where this music is, that is where the mind is. I need to be with these people.
10[on Led Zeppelin] That tumultuous, amazing combination of friends. We were great when we were great. I was part of something magnificent which broke the Guinness Book of Records, but in the end, what are you going to get out of it? Who are you doing it for? You have to ask these questions: who pays the piper, and what is valuable in this life? I don't want to scream 'Immigrant Song' every night for the rest of my life, and I'm not sure I could.
11I'm just incredibly fortunate that my eyes and ears have been opened. I have to be honest with myself and remove as much of the repetition and fakery as is humanly possible. To soothe the savage heart, we have to repeat ourselves sometimes - that's entertainment.
12The further I get into it, the harder it will be to get a gig in the Top Rank. I won't fit. If I continue doing this, it will mean obsolescence for me.
13[on his singing] [My style has] subliminal flutters passing Don Van Vliet, Son House, Terry Reid and the call to prayer from the minaret of the Koutoubia in Marrakech, all waiting to contribute to the next sound. Every 16 bars, we visit another country.
14When you hear north African or Indo-jazz fusion in the Band of Joy mix, that is mine. If I take credit for anything in this band, that's it, that's something I've brought to Nashville, and I'm proud of that.
15When you see what we did last night [in Toronto], that is why we do it. Yes, there's a lot of smiling on stage, but there's a lot of hard work and there are a lot of fuck-ups too. We've worked together a lot now, we know each other; there are no secret corners. I'm as absurd as ever and they are gratefully patient. Every male-driven innuendo I come up with, Patti [Patty Griffin, touring with band of Joy in 2010] just rolls her eyes and chuckles."We are good at everything you would expect to be good because you could never find more talented musicians than these; playing together or in those passages sometimes when people are dropping in and out, when sometimes one of us will just opt out for a minute and a half.
16I asked Nic [Band of Joy road manager Nicola Powell] if my rambling between songs on stage is getting too obscure. She says no, it's just about mad enough to capture the spirit of the thing.
17It's a two-dimensional gig being a singer, and you can get lost in your own tedium and repetition.
18[on Led Zeppelin's infamous performance at Live Aid (1985)] Live Aid was a fucking atrocity. It made us look like loonies.
19I find ironing helps get me in the mood before I perform. I always have an ironing board in my room before going on.
20[on Roy Harper] The dynamics and drama in Roy's music are phenomenal.
21[on Bo Diddley] His voice and relentless, glorious anthems echo down through my years. This royal shapeshifter continues to influence four generations of musicians on a daily basis.
