The singer has admitted he used to take fuel out of cars and steal milk in the early hours of the morning, reports The Daily Express.
He also revealed that pre-Led Zeppelin he and his bandmates from the group Band of Joy, including John Bonham, were on the 'point of starvation' in the mid 1960s.
He said, "We were better at siphoning petrol out of parked cars than we were at pulling crowds. We all meant it. We were at the point of starvation and would get involved in thievery.
"We would nick bottles of milk off the doorsteps in Manchester at 5am while tenants were waking up."
The name 'Band of Joy' might be familiar to some after the singer announced earlier this summer that he would be taking his new band on the road for a UK autumn tour, under the name of Robert Plant and the Band of Joy, as previously reported by Spinner. Their album, entitled 'Band of Joy', is due for release on Sept. 13.
