Finally, presenting...the day I met Robert Plant


Recommended Posts

ha, I wish, I was lucky enough for just the one time....but maybe that will give me some pull....ooh what I sleaze I would be. :)

I agree, they will tour....and I will be oh-so-broke.

I need my next job and pronto....start saving....

I'm going to start a Zeppelin Tour '08 jar and take donations in the NYC subways. Might be the best damned idea I've ever had.

Neat story. I wish I could sit with him over tea, talk about music and life philosophies and people, etc. Has always sounded like someone one could do that with. Very excellent for you to have met him.

...So when he was done with the show, he went back into the makeup room and Gina waved me in, so I came in, and Robert Plant started undressing!!! Just his shirt, changing back into his other clothes, but still, I walked in on Robert Plant changing. And I must say, and only the girls would care about this….but he still looks good. <3

So after he got his shirt on, the make up artist started talking for me, cause she knew I couldn’t get out any words, and she just told him how much of a fan I was and how much his music meant to me, etc. She didn’t lie once…I’m obsessed. So she asked him for a picture, and he grabbed me, put his arm around d me, leaned in, and smiled! I was so happy, but then it just got even better….he said, “Thank you sweetie,” and then leaned in and kissed me on one cheek, and then went over to the other!!!! I kissed him back the second time…I was so damn giddy after that I grinned the rest of the day. I know he has kissed many many many women in his time, and I am happy to be one of them!! Haha. So then I walked them back out to their cars and they left.

Still grinning...months later.

Here's the larger pic

Locarno Ballroom - December 9, 1971 / Coventry | Led Zeppelin Official Website

On March 17, 1988 Robert performed in Coventry at the University of Warwick Arts Centre. He was interviewed by W963 Warwick University Radio. Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of it but he very well may have mentioned to them that he had performed in Coventry way back in 1971.
