New York (ANI): 'Led Zeppelin' singer Robert Plant was almost beaten up by Allman Brothers legend Duane Allman, when the former played in the US for the first time with his band. The revelation came from Allman drummer Butch Trucks during an interview for a magazine.
"Robert Plant starts running all over the stage with his velvet pants on, and we were all looking at each other, [like] ''What the [bleep] is this?" the New York Post quoted Allman drummer Butch Trucks as telling Relix.
"It was as much about the ballet and the costumes as about the music, if not more so. Duane got up and said, I'm either going to go up there and kick the [bleep] out of that guy or we're leaving. And we all got up and left. It just infuriated Duane. He was so let down by one of his gods," he added.
