BANG Showbiz is reporting: Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant had a car crash with a drugs counselor. The rocker was driving his Audi A8 car when he collided with driver Richard Grant at a junction in North West London.

Grant - who is a counselor for charity Turning Point - was knocked unconscious and suffered whiplash in the smash, but came round to find the singer standing nearby.

Plant – whose car was damaged beyond repair in the accident - said: "My Mercedes is smashed up and I'm not in a good way."

Plant, 60, is not thought to have been seriously hurt in the accident.

Plant says "my mercedes is all smashed up..." I thought he was driving an Audi A8........is he just kidding or does he have a concusion?..........man I do hope all is well in "Zeppelin" land......maybe you (Robert) should go and get a cat scan...............oh, and having a drug counselor for a passenger is just too funny, that would have never been the case back in the early 70's....Hee, hee!!!

Let's get the facts straight. The quote is from the other driver, not Plant. Plant was driving an A8, not a Mercedes. And he was NOT injured in the accident.

OR, his dearly beloved Mercedes got smashed up recently (most likely by a girlfriend of a wife) and he was so upset that he ended up in an accident while driving his spare Audi A8.... It all makes sense now :) Well, in any case, I hope Mr. Plant is ok

This thing keeps on getting more comical all the time. I meant to say "a Girlfriend OR a wife". But I bet a girlfriend of his wife smashing up his... ok, I´ll stop here. I´m making even less sense than usual.

Either this reporting of the event isn't accurate, or Robert Plant was driving two cars at once. I think the former is much more likely.

Anonymous829, are you sure that Mr. Plant wasn't driving two cars at once? I wouldn't put it past him, he's pretty awesome.

Jimmy Page may have cut Plant's break lines. Somewhere Allison Krauss is waiting by the phone for news of his condition, thinking "I knew something like this would happen".
