Personalities | Led Zeppelin | After The Break Up (1993) | Key Events



The irony of Jimmy Page teaming up with David Coverdale was that throughout Coverdale’s time with Whitesnake in the late 1970s and 1980s, many people noticed his overt similarities to Robert Plant, which led to him being branded David Coverversion in some circles. Coverdale/Page would be Page’s most successful non-Led Zeppelin related work, though. A collection of co-written originals, it didn’t have the range of a Led Zeppelin album, nor was it as drab as Page’s solo Outrider effort, managing to please hard-rock fans and Page acolytes alike.


Plant’s Fate Of Nations

Since Robert Plant’s earliest, pre-Led Zeppelin days, he had always had a keen interest in folk music. Though that surfaced, with Plant’s input, on Led Zeppelin albums from III onwards, Fate Of Nations is the first of Plant’s solo releases to make his folk influences so obvious. At times his most personal solo album, Plant’s Fate Of Nations was yet another corner turned in an increasingly interesting solo career for the singer, and an album that revealed hidden depths over time (‘I Believe’ addresses Karac Plant’s death), while being and his most political (‘Network News’).
