Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant 'Flattered' To Be Wolverhampton Wanderers Vice-President

Robert Plant, the rock star who fronted the legendary Led Zeppelin, has revealed that Wolverhampton Wanderers' decision to make him an honorary vice-president has left him feeling a little strange.

Plant, 60, has been watching Wolves for 55 years, and received his honour on the pitch during half-time in Saturday's game against West Ham United at Molineux from chairman Steve Morgan.

"First of all, I’m flattered, but I’m embarrassed to be honest," the singer told The Express & Star.

"
There are so many other people who are so important and relevant to the club, especially the people I sit next to at Molineux in the Steve Bull Stand.

"They’ve seen so many more games than me and they’re able to keep a closer eye on what’s going on."

Plant is a West Midlander through and through, having been born in West Bromwich and now living near Kidderminster in Worcestershire. He was linked with a director's position twice before.

In the 70's he ruled out a move into the boardroom because he felt that the atmosphere was a little stuffy for him. He was also linked with launching a takeover for the club in 1982, along with former ELO drummer Bev Bevan.

A home and away season ticket holder, Plant has reportedly ruled out changing his seat at Molineux and sitting in the director's box.
