Recommended Posts

December 23, 1989 Outrageous and rare clip of Percy performing in a shopping mall with the very same cops who gave him a DUI. This set was his community service. Only Zep tune he does in this set. He covers the Police, ZZ Top, Bryan Adams and more. Obviously the only songs the cops knew.

i can't believe this actually happened....

GO ROBERT!!!

That was at the Swan Centre in downtown Kidderminster. Robert joined the local band Out of the Blue for their Day of Awareness charity show in aid of Barnardo's.

He performed five cover versions and 'Rock And Roll'.

Hadn't heard of any DUI/community service angle before. Hmm...don't know about that.

Barnardo's is a British charity founded by the Irish Doctor Thomas John Barnardo in 1866, to care for vulnerable children and young people. As of 2007, it spends over £195 million each year on 394 projects aimed at helping these same groups. Barnardo's is based in Barkingside in the London Borough of Redbridge in East London.

The charity was established when its founder Thomas Barnardo opened a school in the East End of London to care for and educate children of the area left orphaned and destitute by the recent cholera outbreak. In 1870 he founded an orphanage at 18 Stepney Causeway with the same goals. By the time of his death in 1905, Barnardo's institutions cared for over 8,500 children in 96 locations. His work was carried on by his many supporters under the name Dr Barnardo's Homes.[1]

Following societal changes in the mid 20th century, the charity changed its focus from the direct care of children to fostering and adoption, renaming itself Dr Barnardo's. Following the closure of its last traditional orphanage in 1989 it took the still simpler name of Barnardo's.

H.M. Queen Elizabeth II is the current patron of Barnardo's. Its Chief Executive is Martin Narey, formerly head of the National Offender Management Service[2]. His appointment was warmly welcomed by staff at Barnardo's and in the wider children's sector.

Today, the charity works with disabled children, victims of sexual abuse, mental health problems, homeless children, and children and young people affected by HIV and AIDS. The alleviation of child poverty links most of its work with more than 115,000 children. In recent years it has accompanied its service delivery work with some robust campaigning on Sarah's Law, asylum seeking children, children in care, young carers and, most prominently, child poverty. The combination of service delivery, in which it is second only to NCH in size, and its campaigning voice makes it one of the UK's leading children's charities.

The charity's current tagline is: believe in children.

Cool! Do some last minute Christmas shopping in a mall and be entertained with a free Robert Plant concert at the same time! So what if the back-up band sucks, it's Robert Plant singing!

I never knew Plant ever got a DUI, let alone this thing happening. Thanks, Cowbell666!

If that is in a "mall" I'm Genghis Khan's codpiece and as for the "Police" angle, H E L L O.

Indi.

As already said, it was the Swan Cente Shopping centre in Kidderminster. The rest of the band were police officers based at the local Police Station. there were about 100 people watching but most shoppers were carrying on with their xmas shopping.
