Robert Plant – How I Got Into Rock And Roll

CNN’s Becky Anderson recently spoke to former LED ZEPPELIN frontman Robert Plant to find out how he got into rock and roll.

“I was looking for a way out as I was a grammar school boy and doing three hours of homework a night and at that time it was 1961,” Plant said on Connect the World.

“You had Elvis telling us of another world. I don’t know how much more expressive you can get than being a rock and roll singer.”

Plant went on to say that although he was interested in trigonometry and foreign languages, he could not have chosen a path in life that didn’t include music.

“Band of Joy”, the new album from Plant and BAND OF JOY — a new version of his pre-LED ZEPPELIN group which also featured the late John Bonham — will be released on Tuesday, September 14.
