What's with Plant's fingernail length?

Recommended Posts

Flamenco guitar lessons? Leading part in "Vlad Dracula in the Black Country woods"? Nope.

When he hadn´t  a credit card at hand, he still could shovel mountains of coke easily.

Cocaine nails?

Dunno... wasn't that usually done with just 1 fingernail long, usually the pinky/little finger? Only saw that in movies.

Exactly right.  A guy where I worked back in the early 90's had a Cocaine Pinky.

Robert Plant's got some long, uncut fingernails, Earls Court, London 1975.

I'm 99% sure they would be for finger picking guitars.  I've seen many guitarists who have fingernails glued on for that reason.  John Butler has very similar ones to Robert and he is a finger picking guitarist...

That would make sense as I believe Plant is left-handed.

You folks know Led Zeppelin like Trump knows foreign policy.

I don't know if he is left-handed as fact, just that he usually carries the mic in his left-hand, whereas I think most right-handed people use their right-hand to hold a mic.

And ANYBODY knows more about foreign policy than that guy...

He's right handed , writes with his right hand , and in pics where he has a guitar he holds it righty.  That long thumb nail is puzzling, could be a blow thumb spoon. 😬
