Walsall-1965

Roger Beamer bass guitar
John Crutchley guitar
Robert Plant vocal
Geoff Thompson drums

Robert made his first public performances as a teenager
at Stourbridge’s Seven Stars Blues Club.
He had spells with several local bands including
one called the Crawling King Snakes,
where he first met John Bonham.
In 1966 Robert was in a group called Listen
when he attracted the attention of CBS Records.
His first recording contract was to make three singles
for CBS, but none of these made any significant impact.
