Robert Plant is known for his charity work and everything that he does to make the world a bright and shiny place. Not only has Plant made his mark on music, but now he insists of making his mark as an overall incredible human who will stop at nothing to ensure that all are recognized.
It was noted that back in September, Robert Plant handed out awards to runners who took place in a marathon charity race in Worcestershire. As you can see below, Plant looked very happy to be part of such a great event.
Plant is no stranger to giving credit where it’s due. In fact, he went on record to give credit to who he feels is the ‘queen’ when it comes to their singing, and that would be none other than Joni Mitchell, to whom Plant often dedicated the heavily Joni indebted ‘Going to California’ by crying out her name in concert.
While sitting down with the BBC Radio 2 program, ‘Tracks Of My Years’, Plant listed out some of his favorite songs and artist of all time. Inevitably, Mitchell’s name made an appearance as Plant opted to focus on her Hejira cut ‘Amelia’. The song selection also came with some high praise from the former Zeppelin frontman.
Plant would state: “[She’s] the queen of all that beautiful music that was written around that time for the late ’60s on through,” Plant gushed about Mitchell. “Her catalogue is incredible, and her concerts were really beautiful, incredibly moving. The whole Laurel Canyon music scene up there in Sunset Boulevard was something really special.”
You go, Mr. Plant. Keep spreading the word of positivity and love.
