ROBERT PLANT Granted U.K. Civic Honor

According to the BBC News, former LED ZEPPELIN singer Robert Plant was among the 966 people granted civic honors yesterday (Tuesday, December 30) in the U.K.

The honors are bestowed in the name of Queen Elizabeth II and are recommended by a panel that considers suggestions from government departments and political parties as well as from members of the public.

Plant was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire, or CBE, which is one rank below a knighthood.

The singer reunited with his former LED ZEPPELIN bandmates for a one-off London show last year. Plant also won a Grammy in 2007 for his collaboration with American bluegrass singer Alison Krauss.
