Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin released the final episode of his long-time Digging Deep podcast and shared an untold conversation he had with legendary band manager, and his old-time friend, Ahmet Ertegun.
Here is what Plant said:
“I remember one night I went out with [Ertegun] and Phil Spector in New York, and we were in a club somewhere. We decided it was time to sing the outros of famous vocal music from the late ‘50s and early ‘60s. So we only sang the ends of the songs, and you can imagine how hysterical it would be.”
Plant said that once in a while, Ertegun told him that to stop all this ‘weird’ music and do the ordinary stuff that can get anybody in the studio to play.
“Ertegun kept saying to me, ‘Man, why don’t you stop all this weird shit and just do some of those songs? … I can get anybody in the studio to play ‘em, why don’t you sing ‘em?’ So I did.”
