Karac's death later inspired him to write several songs in tribute: "All My Love" featured on Led Zeppelin's final studio album, 1979's In Through the Out Door, while "Blue Train" featured on Page and Plant's second and final (studio) album, 1998's Walking into Clarksdale.
The most important thing about Led Zeppelin II is that up to that point I'd contributed lyrics.
Plant gained an interest in singing and rock and roll music at an early age; in an interview with Andrew Denton on the Denton talk show in 1994, Plant stated his desire, as a ten-year-old, to be like Elvis: [W]hen I was a kid I used to hide behind the curtains at home at Christmas and I used to try and be Elvis.
There was a certain ambience between the curtains and the French windows, there was a certain sound there for a ten-year-old.
A powerful and wide vocal range (particularly evident in his high-pitched vocals) has given him a successful singing career spanning over 50 years.
In 2008, Rolling Stone editors ranked him number 15 on their list of the 100 best singers of all time.
Although Led Zeppelin dissolved in 1980, Plant occasionally collaborated with Jimmy Page on various projects through this period, including forming a short-lived all-star group with Page and Jeff Beck in 1984, called the Honeydrippers.
The band's eponymous debut album hit the charts in 1969 and is widely credited as a catalyst for the heavy metal genre. Plant stated that "During Led Zeppelin I, as far as I was concerned I thought that I was going to [leave the band] anyway. I was quite nervous and didn't get into enjoying it until II." Released only a few months later was the band's second album, Led Zeppelin II, which many referred to as a piece-together album.
Plant has commented that it is unfair for people to think of Zeppelin as heavy metal, as almost a third of their music was acoustic. The group worked on this album while on the road, so many of the songs were recorded at separate times rather than in one sitting.
Plant received no songwriting credits on the band's first album, allegedly because he was still under contract to CBS Records at the time.
Initially dubbed the "New Yardbirds" in 1968, the band soon came to be known as Led Zeppelin.
