The Bob Dylan Song That Robert Plant Described As ‘Fantastic’
Undoubtedly, Bob Dylan has been a prominent figure both in popular culture and the music scene throughout his career spanning 60 years. Known as one of the greatest songwriters of all time, Dylan has many well-received works, such as his ‘Blowin’ In The Wind,’ ‘The Times They Are A-Changin,’ ‘Like A Rolling Stone,’ and ‘One More Cup Of Coffee.’
Although Dylan’s most celebrated musical efforts became anthems for the civil rights and anti-war movements in the 1960s, they are still popular now in the current music scene. His lyrics carry some political, social, philosophical, and literary elements, making them timeless and relatable. As it turns out, Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant is also among the fans of Dylan’s work, and he thinks one of his songs in particular is fantastic.
Robert Plant Thought Bob Dylan’s ‘One More Cup Of Coffee’ Is A Fantastic Song
In 2005, Robert Plant joined the television journalist and talk show host Charlie Rose for an interview. During the conversation, Rose talked about Rolling Stone magazine’s top-10 biggest rock and roll songs of all time lists. He then argued that Bob Dylan would probably be at the top of the list.
In response, Robert Plant stated Dylan’s ‘One More Cup Of Coffee’ would be at the top place. He then said it’s a fantastic song and described Dylan as the guy who woke them all up with his contributions to the music scene. So, it is evident that Plant is a fan of Bob Dylan’s work, especially his classic hit: ‘One More Cup Of Coffee.’
During the interview, Charlie Rose told Robert Plant the following:
“If I’d asked Rolling Stone magazine to commission me and tell me what the ten biggest rock and roll songs of all time, they would have ten others. Dylan would be number one probably.“
Robert Plant then responded:
“Well, Dylan’s got to be ‘One More Cup Of Coffee,’ I think. It’s such a fantastic song. I mean, how can I forget about Dylan’s contribution when he was the guy who woke us all up?“
