Robert Plant: Ramble On

Mark Petracca, Creem, September 1993

ROBERT PLANT, looking very fresh with only 27 years of rock 'n' rolling under his belt and leather jeans, is seated in the lone hotel in the market town of Street, Somerset, waxing poetic about the legend of King Arthur and Camelot, the pursuit of the Holy Grail, and the famous "rocks" of Stonehenge. For a moment, I swear I hear the distinct refrain of days long gone; Zep days that brought us these stories via 'Ramble On' and 'The Battle of Evermore'.
