It isn't every day that you get the chance to talk with rock royalty but that day is coming Friday when Bob and Coe speak with the incomparable Robert Plant. The team will be asking Robert about his unprecedented career with Led Zeppelin, and his new album Carry Fire. They'll also and what it's like to receive accolades like "The Greatest Metal Vocalist of All Time" by Hit Parader, "The greatest voice in rock," by Planet Rock, and being ranked #15 on the Rolling Stone list of 100 best singers of all time.
With a career spanning 5 decades, the former lead singer of Led Zeppelin and the Honeydrippers is now working solo. His latest album eleventh studio album, Carry Fire, melds unusual rhythms with naturalism. As with his 2014 album, lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar, it features his band The Sensational Space Shifters. They are also joined by special guests, including Chrissie Hynde. NPR called the album "Transfixing. Plant and his collaborators create music that overflows with irrepressible life force ... Carry Fire is rivetingly intimate." Check out the "New World" video from the album below.
Interesting tidbit: while Robert Plant is not knighted (and therefore cannot be called "Sir"), he has been honored as a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) by Queen Elizabeth II in 2008.
