Rock Legend Robert Plant Named Vice President of Wolves
Rock legend Robert Plant, frontman of LED ZEPPELIN, has been named of football club and Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers – a club which nearly ruined his marriage.
“First of all, I’m flattered, but I’m embarrassed to be honest,” said Plant, who has watched Wolves for 55 years.
“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.”
The Express & Star says Plant could have gone onto the board twice before.
He refused a directorship in the late 1970s because he didn’t feel comfortable with the stuffiness associated with the boardroom, while he and ELO drummer and fellow Wolves fan Bev Bevan were linked with a takeover of the club in 1982.
