Logan Plant

Logan Romero Plant (born 21 January 1979) is an English singer-songwriter and lead vocalist for the Black Country Bandits, and the Sons of Albion. Plant is the youngest son of Maureen Plant and Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant.

His birth came after two years of grief for the Plant family following the shock death of Karac Plant, and Robert Plant wanted to spend more time with his family rather than tour as a result. Logan Plant was a student at the University of Wales, where he graduated with a Diploma in Sports Massage. He was a teenage football player before deciding on a career in music. In 2000 he was centre-half forward for League of Wales team Inter Cardiff. Plant had started playing for Inter Cardiff in December 1999 after moving from Halesowen in the West Midlands League, and West Bromwich Albion. Plant also worked for a number of years as a male model for Boss Model Management. Since starting his singing career, he prefers to go by the name Logan Romero instead of Logan Plant in order to avoid being constantly compared to his famous father. In 2004 he joined local West Midlands rock band the Riot, before they changed their name to Black Country Bandits. The band performed at the Bergen Blues Festival in Norway and the 2004 Lollapalooza tour, before splitting up and Logan relocated to London. In 2006 he joined hard rock band Sons of Albion. The band made their US debut in March 2009 at SXSW, and have released four singles and one album.

On 4 September 2005, Plant married Bridget E. Smith in London. At the wedding reception, Robert Plant sang a number of rock standards with rockabilly band Restless.
