I highly doubt Robert cares about money much. He had repeatedly turned down guaranteed 100 million dollars to do a Zeppelin tour.

This.

I love Zeppelin, but whenever I think of Plant's solo work, Tall Cool One starts playing in my head, and I curl up in the fetal position.

That sounds like low-balling.

The British arm of CBS Records signed Robert Plant in 1967, and he recorded a ballad titled
"Our Song".  Judging by its sales, it was actually nobody's song (reportedly, it sold less than
1000 copies).  I guess you could say that it went over like a led (sic) zeppelin.

Musically, he has certainly been more productive than the rest of Led Zeppelin.  His voice can't handle the old Zeppelin songs anymore and he doesn't want to do something that would just be sad.  Good for him.

His previous release with Alison Krauss and T-Bone Burnett was really good, IMHO. I heard him live this year at New Orleans Jazz Fest and he was playing with a bunch of young guys and doing several Zeppelin covers. The guy gets my full respect for his career as an entertainer. He has totally knocked me out on several occasions. Those high notes are no longer in his range. I'd probably still go see at least one Led Zeppelin show, if they did ever tour again (So much fun during both the previous Page & Plant tours) The Honeydrippers thing was quite nice too, back in the day. His longevity is a real testament to his talent and popularity.

I'm betting this won't be his last anything. At 66 he may not tour all that much, but musicians generally don't stop making music until they die.

I'm not sure he "doesn't care" about money... its just that seeking additional money won't really serve him as he's already worth 120 million.

Saw Page & Plant during the Walking into Clarksdale tour in Minneapolis. Blew my mind. They played pretty much the best of I-IV (minus Stairway which I agree with not playing).

Of his solo career, just gonna leave this:

Also, Dreamland is an amazingly good album! Though quite dark and bluesy.

The little known Robert Plant Tribute CD. Plant Waves

Yes it exists and Plant even did a version of 29 Palms from this album in concert

I have a very cool story bro if anyone wants to hear it.

the last?? think I've heard this before...

The song remains the same.

His last two studio albums, Raising Sand and Band of Joy, are really good. He found good musicians and songs that fit what he seems to enjoy singing. Now and Zen and Manic Nirvana have a tone of "trying to sound contemporary and shift units" that doesn't hold up too well. That stuff made me give on Plant enough that I haven't even really listened to the Page/Plant Clarksdale.

About 10 years ago I help produce a Robert Plant Tribute album (the only one that's been released) quite the project that took years to make because of budget, time and finding bands. The CD was released in 2004 and you can download it off of Itunes. I sent a copy to Plant's management but never heard back. In July of 2005 I was lucky enough to meet Robert after a show and I was going to give him a copy of the CD, he said he already had it and that he liked the version of 29 Palms and his band did that version in concert. I thought he was just being nice but then I came across some bootlegs with audio and less than great video quality but sure enough,he band did THAT arrangement of 29 Palms from the CD. Pretty cool feeling.

Here's the album version

Here's Plant version in 2006.

Yep. He might think he's done, but I'm betting he's not. There are exceptions to the rule, but usually the real dyed-in-the-wool musicians just keep on making music til the end.

I have nothing but respect for Robert Plant. Sure, he's done a few clunkers... but he's done plenty of great material, too. And he's constantly trying new things.. I admire that.

Plant did Shake My Tree while touring with Page.  I always thought that was really cool.  Did you ever see DLR do any Hagar tunes?

Wow, now that is the definition of CSB! That is indeed a VERY cool strory! Thank you.
