    I bet someone like Robert would quietly wince if you hit him with a 'funny' Zep reference. Sure, he might be humble and gracious but that sh*t must be getting really old.

    I remember seeing Sting eating breakfast at a hotel. I saw his concert the night before (killer!) and thought "hey, that's Sting, I should..." Then I thought, let the man eat his breakfast in peace, I can at least offer him that respect...

    That's what I would do, too.

    Why would he be with the peasants in the lounge?
    I thought he had his own plane....

    You should run over and ask him if he’s still trying to sing like Steve Marriott.

    You did the right thing. I have total sympathy for a celeb's basic human right of being able to eat in peace.

    Plant is a great artist. He seems to have great courage. I admire him. To mature to an accomplished artist from a pop idol is no small accomplishment.

    That reminds me of the SNL skit where Sting is stuck on an elevator with a couple fans. "RRROOOOOXXXXXAAANNNEE!"

    Unfortunately, I can't find that video anywhere.

    Edit: Found it!

    Robert Plant used to sing about middle earth. Now he looks like he comes from there.

    That's just downright clever. And now probably stolen at least 10 times over. We're musicians after all.

    It was painful. Stern really didn't quite understand that Plant is way beyond Zeppelin at this point.

    I never had the pleasure, but I know two people who have met him and both said he was very grounded.

    So you didn't shout above the din of his Rice Krispies?

    Is that a real airport security person? I think she's beautiful.

    My sister-in-law sold him a necklace at a boho jewlery shop in Williamsburg, BK a few years ago. She had no idea who he was, but she's naturally good natured and welcoming. So she asked him questions like:

    "So what do you do?"
    'A musician'

    "Oh, that must be great. Do you travel a lot."
    'Sometimes, when I feel like it'

    "Have you done it your whole life?"
    'Not yet. But it certainly seems like it sometimes.'

    So she calls my brother and said "I'm checking out a British gentleman, he's a musician and very sweet, but he carries himself like he's someone I should probably know."

    My brother asked who he was and his wife responded 'no, oh wait... I'm holding his credit card.... is Robert Plant famous or important?'

    I think my brother spent 3 days in the hospital from the fall when he fainted.
