Page Chained To Toilet For Calm

LED ZEPPELIN star JIMMY PAGE was once chained to a toilet seat by his bandmates to prevent him trashing a hotel room. The guitarist was restrained by bandmates Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham in a bid to stop him from carry out a post-concert ritual in their luxury suite. He says, "As far as the myth goes, there's no smoke without fire. "When you come offstage after three-and-a-half hours of intensity, it was not really on the cards that you want to put you slippers on and have a cup of cocoa. "What's the point of staying in a hotel and just ordering room service?"

They need to do it again to keep him from breaking any more fingers. Of coarse the Zeppelin folklore is entertaining, but we should remember that the only reason Led Zeppelin remain quite possibly the most popular band in the world is because they were the greatest rock band that ever stepped on a stage, creating an astonishingly brilliant body of work that sounds even better as the years roll on.
