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."

    wtf, its disgraceful burnin plant like that, cant artists like him be good without people asuming he is a complete junkie, of course he took a few drugs, but that was just the culture of the time, he took them because he wanted to have a good time, not because he was a junkie

    Of course he did acid. It's one of his many inspirations. Pointless of him to deny doing it "as often as people assumed". You don't see Cheech and Chong trying to fit in.
