Robert Plant has a lifetime (and then some) of memories from the road, but one of his favorite memories comes via performing with Willie Nelson and his very generous ways.
Plant was asked on his Digging Deep podcast what his most cherished memory of his career was, and after some hemming and hawing, he said, “We were invited to play with Willie Nelson three months ago and he was traveling through his tour with his big bus giving away weed to everybody…Just for free. ‘Here! Have some of Willie’s weed!’ He just gives it away. It’s a truckload from here to the mirrorball and beyond. Free. With doors to go in, get your little hit and go out the other side.”
Plant also details Nelson’s road ways of how he doesn’t actually stay in hotels on the road. Instead, he just stays on his tour bus and uses hotels to just take a shower.
Sure…it’s likely due to the fact that most hotels are non-smoking now, and Willie does his fair share of smoking, but the whole fascinating anecdote can be heard below.
