Maureen Plant appeared uncredited in the 1976 film The Song Remains the Same, on the family property in Wales.

She was also filmed for the 'castle maiden' scene being rescued by Robert at Raglan Castle but this was eventually cut from the final release. She was also the driver in the hired Austin Mini, with Robert in the passenger seat, which was involved in an accident on the Greek island of Rhodes on 4 August 1975.

A LOSS INSPIRES "American Kid" proves to be Griffin's most soulful and pensive album yet, owing to the life circumstances that inform it.

"My dad was getting ready to pass away and I was just kind of writing for myself; he was a big influence for a lot of the record," Griffin recalls of her father, a World War II vet and high school teacher who died in 2009. But it was good to have that outlet, to be able to write songs about it." Meditative, but not somber, the album kicks off with "Go Wherever You Wanna Go," in which Griffin imagines a carefree afterworld.

That's the question Patty Griffin set forth to answer when recording her seventh solo album, "American Kid," out May 7 on New West Records.

The cult singer/songwriter already connects with a legion of fans through songs detailing all manner of heartbreak and joy.

But for her first album of new solo material since 2007's "Children Running Through It" (2010's Grammy Award-winning "Downtown Church" was a live recording), she says, "I wanted it to sound like I was in the room with you." To that end, she and producer Craig Ross hired her stage sound engineer Roy Taylor to rig up "a bunch of old microphones to get that local sound," while hunkered down at the "funky, lived-in" Zebra Ranch Studio located an hour outside of Memphis, owned by Luther and Cody Dickinson of the North Mississippi All-Stars (both of whom play on the record).

"Studios are designed to pull out all of that beautiful ambience you get from singing in a room, and then the engineer puts it back in digitally or through whatever machinery you've got," says Griffin, speaking from her home in Austin.

During much of the mid-1960s Plant struggled through a series of bands such as Listen, Band of Joy, and solo projects, and later acknowledged that Maureen had helped him survive when financially strapped, even briefly working for her father in his steel factory. Robert Plant and Maureen later married on 9 November 1968 in West Bromwich, with their reception was held at the Roundhouse where Led Zeppelin had performed that evening.
