Relatively normal upbringing of a vocalist Robert Plant's Led Zeppelin in the West Midlands was far from the alluring glitz and glamour that had suffocated him throughout his adult life... Plante spent most of his childhood looking out the window and dreaming of an escape, or at least a bike ride to the picturesque Welsh borders from his home... Plante was an only child in the family until he was 11 years.and he really had a lot of free time.

Every week. at Stourbridge Town Hall concerts were held, and it gave Plantu the opportunity to see many of the stars of that time and place... The future frontman Led Zeppelin loved spending time in the crowd watching the incredibly talented musicians! At the same time, he knew in his heart that one day he too would take his place on that sacred stage...

"I pushed my stamp collection aside and found myself cycling to Stourbridge in the West Midlands at night and working at Woolworth's every weekend so I could buy a ticket to Stourbridge Town Hall for five shillings... There, on stage, real magic was happening! The curtain would come down and Gene Vincent, Screaming Lord Sutch and others would appear... Everything seemed so otherworldly, even the gels used in the spotlights...". - the singer told The Guardian.

Those life-affirming nights spent at the town hall, when artists such as Gene Vincent and Screaming Lord Sutch tear your brain apart, made Plante take the microphone and repeat their greatness... When he finally got a call from a friend and offered to sing in his band, Plante not nervous - it was what he was born to do, and by the end of the show everyone in attendance was in agreement with that statement...

"I was obsessed with it all!" noted Plante. "One night my classmates asked me to sing in their band The Jurymen at some concert in Swadlincote. I looked into the audience, into the eyes of the real love in front of me: to my right, to my left, and a blonde standing somewhere in front... Oh my God! From that moment on, I knew what I wanted to do!"

Youth and formative years Planta were built around the concerts he attended throughout his youth, which gave him reason to believe there was much more to life than Stourbridge. Growing up on a diet of the greatest showmen, Plante was more than ready when the time came for him to go on stage... And the singer has never looked back since.
