The Time Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant Was the Backup Singer for Dee Snider

Led Zeppelin will likely never regroup. Robert Plant started his lengthy and successful solo career soon after the band broke up. His solo songs did what Zep never could — win Grammy awards — and he’s not too keen on revisiting the past. Except for when Plant sang backup to Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider on Led Zeppelin’s “Rock and Roll” after tricking Snider into singing at a wedding.

Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant was Dee Snider’s backup singer at a wedding

Plant called into Snider’s radio show in 2014 (available on SoundCloud) amid a move. He promoted his new music with the Sensational Shape Shifters and their world tour but finished his call by saying he liked the songs Snider “sang at that wedding.”
