Robert Plant
 
One of the most overrated singers. One of the biggest douche bags. His bulge is the focal point of his performances. He said Black Sabbath was "irrelevant." I've seen him cover Bob Dylan songs and not give him credit as the writer. He was a plagiarist.

I see no problem there.

But seriously, you spewed forth a lot of baseless attacks in such few sentences. Overrated singer? How? Douchebag? How? In what context did he call Sabbath irrelevant? And as far as song theft, I wonder how much of that is actually Page's doing.

Mojo 09-18-2011 04:42 PM

Lots of bands and musicians have borrowed from or ripped off other peoples songs. Big deal.

It's all down to personal preference. You hate Robert Plant? You think he's an overrated singer? Good for you. I, however, while not being a Led Zep fanboy, think he was pretty damn close to perfect.

Everyone already knows that Zeppelin stole way too much material without crediting the original songwriters. And what makes you think that Plant is a douchebag?

blastingas10 09-19-2011 03:26 PM

He's an arrogant douche bag. Look it up, he said sabbath was "irreleavant." He said they just "inspired a few bands from Seattle." Pretty much, he said they sucked. Only a douche bag would say that. He was not perfect and not even close to one of the best singers ever. Aretha Franklin would blow his ass away. What Kind of band allows a bulge to be the focal point of their performances? It's called selling out. Zeppelin was all about selling sex to increase popularity.

He also refused Richard Linklater permission to use the title for the film "Dazed and Confused", but fortunately Jimmy Page gave permission. I'm sure he's declined more of these kinds of things, but has no qualms stealing from others for personal gain.

Couldn't think why he'd want to refuse, aside from being a douchebag, as the OP said. Oh and I agree his singing grates after about 10 minutes of listening.

Maybe because Dazed and Confused is a stupid high school stoner flick, and Plant didn't want the song (about a girl) to be associated with such riff raff? idklol

It's a shame the OP is such a troll, I wish someone more worthwhile had made a thread about Plant. He's got a great folky thing going lately

blastingas10 09-19-2011 05:11 PM

That wasnt the point; Plant has a problem with someone else using the name, but he has no problem stealing from others. Im a troll because i dont like robert plant? Ouch. Freedom of speech jack ass, i can say whatever i want. You think hes got a great folky thing going? Well thats your opinion, ill let you have yours, you let me have mine.

P.S.

Stay off of this thread if you dont like it, stop being a troll. ;)

It's actually a pretty decent film, and a good throwback to the times of Led Zeppelin. How is it stupid? And I doubt Plant would have a problem with the stoner aspect of it, or the content matter in general, seeing as how it's basically focused on the times when Zeppelin ruled the land.

And really? idklol? Drop the dumb gamer cyber talk that you seem to include in 50% of your posts.

I know your a Zeppelin fanboy who's probably touchy about this subject, but cmon, even you should be able to admit that his project with Alison Krauss was crap.

jackhammer 09-19-2011 05:22 PM

I just think your jealous because he has a bigger bulge than you. Just guessing.

Oh and I'm not a big Zep fan at all but he had a great voice, charisma and hasn't traded on past glories for over a decade, instead releasing Pyschedelic, Bluegrass and experimental albums with no thought to commercial appeasement.

blastingas10 09-19-2011 05:34 PM

haha yes, i can see you were taking notes on his bulge. By the way, i saw him a few months ago; good show, good backing band, but i still think hes a douche and i still think hes overrated as a singer.

Did you try to get an autograph? I heard he's a jerk about signing them.

No I was just making a general observation. Why did you go and see him if you cant stand him?

blastingas10 09-19-2011 05:49 PM

Because he was at Bonnaroo and so was I. I wanted to see as much as I could. Also, i like his backing band that hes using these days. I never said I cant stand him, I just dont prefer him, I think hes overrated and a douche. I'm not a very big Zeppelin fan, but i like some of their stuff. He has nothing to do with why I like some of their stuff; I like John Paul Jones. Dont really care for page, but hes good, and bohnam is good.

No, you're a troll because your "opinions" boil down to little else than "PLANT SUCKS WHAT A DOUCHE". You're abrasive, you offer little-to-no evidence for your accusations, and you're coming off as kind of a jackass. I would have no problem with your opinions if you stated them in a less confrontational manner.

Lol whoah there Tuna, nice personal attacks. I threw the "idklol" in there because I do not claim to know Plant's true motives (idk), and was partially joking (lol).

His project with Krauss is hardly crap. I'm not saying it was anything special, I just think it's cool to see him moving on with his career and switching over to a genre we all know he's always been fond of, as opposed to clinging to the glory days like many of his contemporaries.

Of course I cant prove that hes a douche, its my opinion. But my reasons are the fact that he called Sabbath "irrelevant." He doesnt credit other musicians, he just steals from them. And he tries to sell sex like hes brittney spears. Those are my reasons for having that opinion. You cant prove that hes not overrated, you cant prove that he is a great singer; That is your OPINION.

I personally always just tried to ignore his bulge and listen to the music, I will admit its quite hard to miss or not notice the sausage (70s & 80s) at times concerning his/other music videos.:laughing:

"Actually" some grown men were born with three legs to stand on, instead of just two at birth.:yikes:

Wouldn't really call it a personal attack, I just always found this kind of internet talk ("come at me brah", "cool story bro", "mad kid is mad", etc) to be annoying and unfunny. No different from those youtube comments having to do with the number of dislikes. You can't really say much after you just called another poster a jackass either.

Not a fan of what ive heard, especially his 80s music. But i do like this previous album he released with the band of joy. The band is pretty good.

His single "In The Mood" reminded me of sounding a little like Led Zeppelin musically.

blastingas10 09-19-2011 09:02 PM

^^ Yes, i thought the same thing. This is interesting


Led Zeppelin Plagiarism Part 1 - YouTube

Pay attention to the vocals in the song by the small faces in the bottom link. its the second song on the video. The vocals are so similar to robert plants. They not only stole songs, sounds like plant stole his vocal style.

Talk about being a repetitive troll!!! All you keep saying about Plant are the same three things and thats "Bulge" "Overrated" and "Douche". You`ve just jumped on a well known band wagon, about Led Zeppelin being accused of ripping off riffs etc by other artists, when a huge amount of other artists do the same thing, Led Zeppelin just got more flak for it as they were one of the biggest bands in the history of rock.

There`s nothing wrong in coming into a thread and saying why you don`t like somebody and giving your reasons and then debating the point. All you`ve done though, is chucked a few insults about Plant around and put up the odd link in an effort to support your trolling.

Its a pity that a mod doesn`t close this nonsense of a thread down.

Mojo 09-20-2011 12:44 PM

You'll soon learn that expressing your opinion as undeniable fact will only get you abuse here. No surprise really, as it's a dead end. It's pointless. It's frankly an ineffective way to make a point.

You don't like Robert Plant. Well done. Other people do.

You don't like his singing. Well done. Other people do.

Theres not really anywhere else for this garbage thread to go now, is there?

PS I'm off to post "Queen sucks" in the Queen thread again.
