Robert Plant- Nine Lives Best Of

Share/Bookmark

It was Robert Plant‘s second solo album, 1983’s The Principle of Moments, which convinced us that Plant could sustain a viable solo career outside of the legendary Led Zeppelin which he fronted for twelve fabled years. Angular extended songs “In the Mood” and the cryptic “Big Log” became rock radio staples in the States, followed by “Little by Little” from Shaken and Stirred in 1985. ROBERT-PLANT-Shaken_n_Stirred

Not until 1988’s Now and Zen, however, did Plant shed the self-conscious shadow of Led Zeppelin by exorcising his ghosts with the song ” Tall Cool One”, brilliantly sampling the “thunder of the gods” iconic licks and employing Zeppelin mastermind Jimmy Page on guitar. “Heaven Knows” and “Ship of Fools” made Now and Zen a blockbuster, with “Hurting Kind” in 1990 from Manic Nirvana  and the tender heartfelt “29 Palms”  on Fate of Nations completing our  visit with Robert Plant In the Studio for this classic rock interview.- Redbeard
