Robert Plant Says he Almost Gave it All up to be a Teacher

I talked about this earlier this week but I thought it was worth posting more about it here. Robert Plant was interviewed in GQ recently.

He talks about staying creative as an artist. He also opens up about about how he almost gave it all up to be a teacher after his son died in 1977.

I just thought there was something far more honest and wholesome about just digging in and putting the ego away in the closet. Because no matter what we say, entertainers are usually quite insecure, wobbly characters underneath, and maybe that bit of glory or that bit of expression or whatever it is compensates in some area. But I thought I should be rid of it. Yeah, I thought it was not a bad idea. Sometimes I still feel like that.

The interview gets less serious when asked about those curly locks that he still sports at the age of 63.

Well, I don’t know. We could be quite serious about it. I just have been very lucky. My mother was a gypsy, and she had a lot of dark blood in her, and her hair was very, very thick—she couldn’t even get a brush through it. So I have been very fortunate. And every time I go to cut it off, hairdressers refuse to do it.

I don’t think I’m alone in giving a special thank you to his hair stylist for refusing to cut his hair! :)
