Robert Plant Becomes Commander Plant



by Paul Cashmere
Robert Plant CBE has promised he will not pull rank with Jimmy Page OBE after receiving the royal honour at Buckingham Palace this week.

The 60-year old Led Zeppelin singer rocked up to the Palace on Friday with his daughter Carman and sons Jordan and Logan to be handed the medal by Prince Charles.

Plants Commander of the British Empire is a higher honour than Jimmy’s Order of the British Empire but Commander Plant says it will not cause a fight between the Led Zeppelin legends.

"If we can remember each other's phone number at this time in life it's a miracle," he joked during the ceremony. "We're still good friends, we both enjoy a rather dark sense of humor that comes, I think, from being from rather the wrong side of the tracks for all those wild years."

Plant received the award for his “Services to popular music”.

Jimmy Page received the OBE four years ago.
