Already deservedly in for fronting Led Zeppelin, the consideration for Robert Plant might be rising with his recent Album of the Year Grammy win. The solo career of Robert Plant may be a little uneven, but it is full of an artist who was willing take a few risks and often go against the Hard Rocking image that he developed with Zeppelin. A second induction for Robert Plant may become very possible if he continues on his current path: An interesting comment to make about an artist who is north of sixty.
Country of Origin:
United Kingdom (West Bromwich, England)
Why He Will Get In:
Amazingly, his solo career still seems to have a lot of life left in it.

Plant is already in with Zeppelin so the Hall can feel like they have already sufficiently honored him.
