    Plant Family Tragedy / Remaining Dates Cancelled

    Newswire: LONDON (AP) — The rock group Led Zeppelin has canceled the last 10 concerts of its trouble-plagued U.S. tour following the death of singer Robert Plant's 5-year-old son Karac,  speaker for the band said yesterday.

    Plant, 29, flew to his farm near Kidderminster in the English midlands Wednesday from New Orleans after his wife Maureen telephoned him with news of the tragedy.

    Moira Bellas said Karac was stricken by an unknown illness last week and collapsed Monday. Doctors decided to hospitalize him, but he died before they could do anything.

    Plant's father said: "Karac was the apple of Robert's eye. They idolized one another."  Plant's other child, 8-year-old Carmen, was not affected by the illness, the spokeswoman reported.

I remember that day. I wept for Robert Plant and his family. It broke my heart someone so young passed away. Parents always hope that the unthinkable of having to bury one of their children never occurs. Parents always expect their children will outlive the parents. I never belived in all the conspiracy theories told about Led Zeppelin. Bad things can happen to good people and this was the way it turned out for Robert Plant and family. God bless Robert Plant and family. Rest in peace Karac.
