6 THE WHEELCHAIR RECORDING
The famous saying in the entertainment industry tells us that “the show must go on.” That was the case for Led Zeppelin as the band was preparing to record the album Presence. Robert Plant had been involved in a serious car accident the year before the band was in the studio, and thus he was relegated to a wheelchair or crutches as the band produced the album. Things did not go perfectly for the front man, as Plant did take a hard spill during one recording session. Plant fortunately did not suffer a serious injury on that day, and he and the band were able to continue recording that tremendous piece of work.
