Bob Harris Says Robert Plant Helped Him Through Cancer Fight

Former Old Grey Whistle Test host Bob Harris says that his close friend Robert Plant helped him tremendously throughout his recent battles with prostate cancer. He spoke on the diagnosis with the BBC and said he and Plant have always been close.

"I was fortunate - very, very fortunate - to catch it in time. Then it was a question of arresting the growth, and then treatment, two months of radiotherapy. Since then it's been management," he explained.

"I really needed to talk to somebody. I phoned Robert, and he offered such unbelievably good advice. He really saw me through that moment. When we got the all-clear again he said, 'Fine - well, I'm not going to be phoning you every single day now!'"
