Robert Plant Feels 'Naughty' Defying Florida Gig Ban
Robert Plant feels like a "naughty boy" whenever he performs in Florida - because he was once banned "for life" from playing in Tampa after a Led Zeppel;in show went awry.

The singer took to the stage at Tampa Stadium with the legendary band back onJune 03, 1977, but the gig was called off half-way through after heavy rain lashed the venue. The crowd became agitated, forcing police to move in to keep the peace - and Plant claims officials told the band to never return to the city.

Plant has since played in the state as a solo artist, but admits he feels like he is breaking the rules everytime he steps on stage there.

He says, "I feel like a naughty, naughty boy. I was banned from there for life. It was a Zeppelin concert and the weather turned. In those days, there was nothing to stop electrocution from water and power. So we had to stop the show, the crowd got restless and the police moved in.

"The authorities decided it was our fault and that would be the end of it. But I can creep in on my own now, under cover."
