"The Principle of Moments", Robert Plant's second solo album, first convinced us forty years ago that Plant could sustain a viable solo career outside of the legendary Led Zeppelin, which he fronted for twelve fabled years. But for me personally it was "Shaken 'n' Stirred" in 1985, served pre-release on a Walkman at 40,000 feet over the Atlantic Ocean,  that began my professional relationship with the complicated singer. And then with 1988's "Now and Zen", Plant scored with his most popular effort to date, "Now and Zen". Robert Plant is my guest In the Studio.
