According to the Toronto Sun, Robert Plant was once banned from hanging out with wildman John Bonham because the drummer's wife thought the singer was a bad influence. The late Bonham's wife Pat didn't care for Plant and tried to stop her husband from spending time with him.
Plant recalls, "his wife Pat had banned me from being anywhere near John, because it meant financial doom and distress on all levels. In her Black Country brogue, Pat would say, 'Don't go near Planty, it's all gonna go tits up'."
