If the power of Robert Plant‘s singing could be described in analogies …

It hits you like a runaway Mack truck that’s on a steep downhill slope with no emergency ramps.

It packs the wallop of Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, and George Foreman.  Combined.  In the primes of their careers.

It makes Chuck Norris look like one of those guys on the beach getting sand kicked in his face before deciding to get into that Charles Atlas bodybuilding program.

If there were a way to harness its raw energy, you might be able to light up a small town for a night.  Yeah, this one’s a bit too cliche.  I’ll try to do better on the next one.

It’s like that 2012 Shelby Mustang GT 1000 coupe — as in a 1,000-horsepower beauty that puts you way back in the seat for one whale of a ride and tests those cushions you’re sitting on.

Okay, maybe I’m getting a bit out of control here, but I could go on.  Don’t think of Robert Plant just as a singer and songwriter and blues harp player from a classic rock band that had the initials LZ.  Take a look at what he’s done since then, and maybe even a touch before.

There’s enough power in him just in what he’s done in his solo work, or with his creations since then, to knock us all over.

My cowboy hat’s off to you, Robert!
