When Robert Anthony Plant was performing this version of “Communication Breakdown” back in 1969, he would never have imagined that he would one day be dubbed a Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) for “services to music” — some 60 years after his birth in West Bromwich, Staffordshire, England, on this day in 1948. But hey, hey mama, that’s what happened. Perhaps his passionate advocacy for a “Whole Lotta Love” is what sealed the deal.
