Robert Plant Net Worth: Robert Plant is an English musician, singer and songwriter who has a net worth of $170 million. Robert Plant was born August 20, 1948 in West Bromwich, Staffordshire, England. He is best known as the lead vocalist and lyricist of the rock band Led Zeppelin and has enjoyed a successful solo career spanning more than 40 years. His signature, powerfully wide vocal range and his trademark high-pitched singing have led to Robert Plant being regarded as one of the greatest singers in the history of rock and roll. Plant has been cited as having influenced contemporaries and then-up-and-coming singers such as Freddie Mercury, Axl Rose and Chris Cornell. In 2006, heavy metal magazine Hit Parader named Robert Plant the Greatest Metal Vocalist of All Time. In 2009, Plant was voted The Greatest Voice in Rock in a poll conducted by Planet Rock. In 2008, Rolling Stone editors ranked him No. 15 on their list of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time. In 2011, readers of Rolling Stone placed Plant in the No. 1 slot of the magazine's list of the best lead singers of all time. Plant cites his early blues influences as Johnson, Bukka White, Skip James, Jerry Miller and Sleepy John Estes. Early in his career, Plant cut three obscure singles on CBS Records and sang with a variety of bands, including The Crawling King Snakes, which brought him into contact with drummer (the late) John Bonham. They both went on to play in the Band of Joy, merging blues with newer psychedelic trends. In 1968, guitarist Jimmy Page was in search of a lead singer for his new band and met Plant after being turned down by Page's first choice, Terry Reid, who referred him to a show at a teacher training college in Birmingham—where Robert Plant was singing in the band Hobstweedle. Initially dubbed the New Yardbirds in 1968, the band soon came to be known as Led Zeppelin. The band's eponymous debut album hit the charts in 1969 and is widely credited as a catalyst for the heavy metal genre, though Plant has commented that he felt it unfair for people to think of Zeppelin as heavy metal, as almost a third of their music was acoustic.
