During a new interview with Dan Rather, Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant shared a story about how he had problems with his voice when he was performing a live show in Australia.
He said “I went to the doctor and hit me with a bit of adrenaline and other things.” Here is the whole story:
“I had a lot of trouble with my voice. I was in Australia once, I was in Melbourne. I remember we sold out some huge stadium. The stage was on wheels so if we had 10,000 people that was fine, but if it was 12,000 they could wheel the stage back with a tractor pulling in. As the day went on, more and more people arrived, and I couldn’t speak.
I went to a doctor and he hit me with some adrenaline and stuff. I turned several shades of different colors and slid down the wall, and I sang the gig. Now that’s the last thing a singer needs to do, the damage that you can do.”
