Happy 65th to Robert Plant! Is this why I couldn't access the site earlier...too many people wishing Mr. Plant happy birthday?

From the Vintage Los Angeles site today...Robert Plant, Balboa Park, Encino, CA...June 1977.

post-1470-0-61967100-1377037152.jpg

Photo taken by Brad Elterman: "I was living with my parents in Sherman Oaks and one day I got this frantic message from my pal and fellow photographer Richard Creamer telling me that Robert Plant from Led Zeppelin was kicking a soccer ball down the street from me in Encino! Plant was in town with Led Zeppelin playing a string of sold-out concerts at The Forum in Los Angeles. I showed up and there he was right in front of my eyes glaring right into the lens of my camera. He was prancing around the field in a pair of Speedos and clearly NOT happy that I was taking his photo! He came up to me (with his surly roadies acting as bodyguards) and demanded my business card. "I want your business card," he screamed and then threatened me that I would never work again in Los Angeles; but hey, it was my town. It is an incredible rush when a major star tells you that you will never work again. I really hope that one day we can meet for a coffee and have a laugh about this afternoon and our good friend, Richard Creamer"

Oh let the Sun beat down upon my Face - Stars to fill my Dreams

I am a traveler of both Time and Space - to be where I have been.

To sit with Elders of a gentle race, this world has seldom seen.

They talk of Days for which they sit and wait - when All will be Revealed...

Happy Birthday (Elder) Robert!
