In other Led Zeppelin-related news, Robert Plant has joined the droves of celebrities who have taken the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. A video clip, which can be viewed on Robert’s YouTube channel, shows the rock legend standing in a nicely landscaped yard or park, ringing a little green bell. Plant reveals that he was nominated by British comedy group Kiddy Lad, and then calls on “Sir Elton John, Sir Tom Jones, Sir Paul McCartney and my favorite commoner, Peter Gabriel” to take the challenge also. He adds, “Come on lads, get wet. Please don’t forget to donate,” before two men empty buckets of ice water over his curly locks.
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge calls for nominated participants to pour ice water over their heads within a day or two or donate $100 to help find a cure for ALS, the progressive degenerative nerve disease commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. As of Friday, more than $100 million has been raised by this year’s campaign.
