Legendary Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant was refused dinner at one of Glasgow's plushest hotels, a new book reveals.

The band was performing in the city at the height of their fame in the early 1970s.

But that cut no ice with staff at the Grand Central Hotel who refused to serve Plant – because he was not properly dressed.

The story of how Glasgow brought Plant back to earth is revealed in a book about the hotel and how it played host to some of the biggest celebrities of the 20th Century, including Laurel and Hardy, Bob Hope and Gracie Fields.

But the book, which is subtitled “Glasgow's most-loved hotel”, reveals that Plant got short-shrift for breaking the strict dress rules in the dining room. The group were in Glasgow for a gig at Green's Playhouse in December 1972 as part of a world tour.

According to the book, Plant and a group of his friends turned up in the dining room to enjoy some fine dining.

Despite being one of the most celebrated rock stars on the planet, touring by private jet, unyielding staff flatly refused to serve Plant and his friends because none of them were wearing ties.

The aggrieved singer and his entourage eventually gave up and stomped off in to the Glasgow night to find somewhere else to eat, reveals the book.
