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.
