Robert Plant sends Wolves fan special 50th birthday message

A rock legend has sent a well-known Wolves fan a special message for his 50th birthday.

Happy birthday from Robert Plant

Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant put together the message for Neil Taylor, the landlord of the Fox at Shipley and a well-known fundraiser for Birmingham Children's Hospital.

Neil recently spent several weeks severely ill at New Cross Hospital with Covid-19 after being admitted in March, but went on to make a full recovery.

He has since worked to raise funds for the NHS, with more than £5,000 raised by the sale of a match-worn Conor Coady shirt.

Robert Plant, who has been a vice-president of Wolves and lives in Kidderminster, sent the message to wish Neil well while playing the guitar.

Daz Hale, who co-hosts the Sam and Daz at Breakfast show on BBC Radio WM, posted the video on Twitter.
