The name Robert goes back far, being introduced by the Normans to the English and having been derived from German. That takes in a large section of northern Europe, an area from which many Americans have hailed. The name has been the handle of numerous kings and other rulers. The Roberts in this list are just a sampling of musicians bearing that name, hailing from England (Plant), Germany (Schumann), the Netherlands (Long), and the U.S. (the rest).
