Former Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant has shot down rumors about his supposed legendary drug intake during the band's 1970s heyday, according to ContactMusic.com.
Plant admits to enjoying marijuana and sedatives, but claims he never took hallucinogenic drugs to the extent people assumed. He says, "I smoked quite a bit of dope and I used to like Quaaludes (potent sedatives legal in America until the 1980s).
"I have three Quaaludes from 1977 still in a jar somewhere, but I know they'll be poison now. I call them Tom, Dick and Harry.
"It was a treat to take half a Quaalude and then ride in on the elevator to see if I could still be standing up when it stopped because my knees would buckle joyously. It improves the giggle."
