He launched his page just in time for his birthday Friday 8-20-10 and fans have been wishing him happy birthday, comment after comment you can feel the love for the Golden God is as strong as ever!

Here is a short Bio from his page:

Robert Plant made his first commercial recordings in 1966. In 1967, he had also formed a group called the Band of Joy, with drummer John Bonham. Soon, Bonham, Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page, and bassist John Paul Jones assembled to become The New Yardbirds which became Led Zeppelin. The Led Zeppelin era ended in 1980 when John Bonham died. Since that time, Plant has put his wide-ranging musical fascination to good use on solo albums, with Jimmy Page, and in recordings with bands like The Honeydrippers, Priory of Brion, and Strange Sensation. His performances have reflected his embrace of West Coast psychedelic rock, roots blues, African music, and traditional folk.

For Band of Joy, Plant enlisted his Raising Sand bandmate Buddy Miller as co-producer. "I approached Buddy Miller because he had been lighting every room that I played in when I was with Alison - and his knowledge and his gaze; he's like a curator of a rock and roll museum packed away in three or four guitar cases and you could take these guitars out and tune them accordingly...and create some juju." Why give the album the name of one of his earliest bands? "In the Band of Joy, when I was seventeen, I was playing everybody else's stuff and moving it around, and it's kind of...time to reinvoke that attitude and sentiment."
