  • "The Enchanter"
  • "When the Levee Breaks"
  • "Tin Pan Alley"
  • "Shine It All Around"
  • "Somebody Knocking"

Unlike many of his classic-rock colleagues, Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant has continued to push his musical boundaries over the years, experimenting with varied forms such as trip-hop, drum ‘n’ bass and even doo-wop.

Robert Plant has been part of a range of solo and group efforts since the 1980 breakup of Led Zeppelin. hide caption
