Happy Birthday to Robert Plant, who turns 72 today (August 20th)!!! Although Plant has enjoyed a successful solo career since 1982, he will always be best known for his years fronting Led Zeppelin and co-writing the majority of the band's songs with Jimmy Page. In October 2018, Plant released his latest solo set, Carry Fire, which peaked at Number 14 on the Billboard 200.
Coming on October 2nd is Digging Deep, Plant's double-disc solo compilation. The 30-track collection ties in with the third season of his critically acclaimed podcast of the same name, and includes three previously unreleased songs. The set features such Plant favorites as “Big Log,” “Heaven Knows,” “In The Mood,” “Ship Of Fools,” “Hurting Kind,” and “Angel Dance,” among others.
Among the guest appearances on the various tracks, which span Plant's now-38-year solo career, are Jimmy Page, Buddy Miller, Patty Griffin, Phil Collins, Nigel Kennedy, Richard Thompson, and his side band Strange Sensation/ the Sensational Space Shifters.
