He has come a long, long way since his lemon-squeezing days.

Honestly, I have always appreciated that he never agreed to do a Zeppelin ‘reunion’ tour, regardless of how lucrative it would have been for all of them. In his later years, he has written songs that suit his voice as it is, rather than as it was- and he seems to have kept true to his mantra of ‘Ever onward’.

Happy birthday, Percy!

Even today, in the world of Big Money music tours, for some artists, some things are still more important than money.  :ebert:

He certainly has come a long way from that picture.  :(

HB just the same.  I'm sure he'll be peeking in here to see who sent good wishes his way.  :)

What is there to not be ok with? If someone was born X amount of years ago then that's their age.

It was a joke question.  :)  

It pokes fun at us fans, who don't want our beloved rock stars to age, because that means WE are aging, too.  :boohoo:

With Robert Plant's birthday being today, and he's had to turn 71 because of it, there isn't, and hasn't been anything wrong.  Wherever you are, and whatever you are doing, Robert, "happy 71st birthday".

I barely made it ro 52, so, yes 71 is an awesome bonus. Being an icon is icing on the cake.

Fortunately, I've never been that type of person...I think it's funny the way some people think that way.

Just so you all know, he's been really into playing tennis for quite a number of years and all that time in the sun has likely taken a toll on his skin.

I’ve seen him live four times- Manic Nirvana and Fate of Nations tours, in 1990 and ‘93, respectively- and twice with Jimmy Page, in 1995.

And even though it has been awhile since then, I’ll say that in seeing clips of his performances I’ve seen in the years since- he has always seemed to bring an appropriate level/degree of energy to the music he and his band are performing, also. He has always been an incredible frontman.
