Rock God

They were the biggest rock group on the planet - knocking off the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.

Everything about Led Zeppelin was bigger, their sound, their bad boy reputation and that voice of lead singer Robert Plant.

He was the self-proclaimed "Golden God" of Rock.

And 40 years on, still singing and touring, he continues to inspire awe in his devotees, musicians and fans alike.

Some of his antics have mellowed, but his voice is still sublime, and there's still a twinkle in his eye.
