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

The legendary rocker can't quite believe that he's now part of the club he's followed since boyhood...
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.
