Plant siempre tuvo claro que quería ser cantante y a los 13 años ya había formado parte de varios grupos, todos ellos con un estilo tendente al blues. En 1966 formó la banda Listen con la que grabó tres sencillos. Su siguiente proyecto fue The Band of Joy, donde también tocaba Bonham. Durante un concierto de una de las numerosas bandas en que recaló, Hobbstweedle, conoce a Jimmy Page y se une a los The New Yardbirds, posteriormente Led Zeppelin. La banda estaba engrasada a la perfección y su primer disco fue grabado en una semana con apenas 30 horas de estudio y sin casi ensayar. En Estados Unidos, la prensa calificó al álbum como Heavy Metal, cosa que no satisfizo del todo a la banda. Plant always had the clear idea of being a singer. When he was thirteen years old he had allready played in some bands allways with a blues style. In 1966 He took part in a band called Listen, where he had the oportunity of recording three sigles with no great sucess. His next project was called The Band of Joy, band where also played his friend Bonham. Later on while he was playing and touring with the band Hobbstweedle he met Jimmy Page who invited him to join The New Yardbirds, band later called Led Zeppelin. The band worked perfectly, so well that they recorded their first album in less than a week and nearly without rehaearsal, and so nice that they became a legend. In the USA, this album was taged as Heavy Metal, cualification that aparently diden’t completely appeal the band.
