Former Led Zeppelin star Robert Plant has been named the new vice-president of U.K. soccer club Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The rocker was unveiled as the new official before Wolves' Premier League kick off game against West Ham United on Saturday (15Aug09) and confessed he was "flattered and embarrassed".
A fan of the club for 55 years, the 60 year old told fans, "There are so many other people who are so important and relevant to the club, especially the people I sit next to at (home field) Molineux... They’ve seen so many more games than me and they’re able to keep a closer eye on what’s going on."
Despite his new title, Plant insists he won't be swapping his season ticket for a place in the director’s box.
The rock star previously turned down a directorship at the club in 1970.
Unfortunately, his new official role didn't bring Wolves the luck they needed for their season opener - they lost 2-0 to West Ham.
