Who would ever think? 40 years after the debut of his debut album with Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant is now the Commander of the British Empire (CBE), an honor given to him in London today by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace.
Plant is not the only member of Led Zeppelin that has official royal ranking, for Jimmy Page has an OBE (Order of the British Empire). Apparenly Plant’s CBE is higher in rank than Plage’s OBE, and I’m sure Zep fans will be debating the true meaning of this for years.
