Even though I've long known that RobertPlant has an aversion to celebrating any kind of milestones or socially-sanctioned events, like Christmas, I was foolish enough to ask him the other day if he planned to do anything to mark his rapidly-approaching 40th birthday.
"I don't have to conform to society's expectations of me!" he ranted down the phone.
Well, he's right. But a simple 'no' would have sufficed.
"I've got a great idea for something to get you! Is it okay if I get you something?"
"Oh, yeah. Presents are good."
His heart's in the right place, then.
