Robert Plant Gave My Sister a Noogie

He said, "Yes, I play with Lawrence Welk," at which I laughed nervously.

So my sister and I and my boyfriend at the time were in a Peabody Hotel elevator in Memphis when my sister decided to hit every elevator button on the way down. We were stopping at every floor, and on the 12th in walked Robert Plant.

I froze up for a minute and then said, "You look familiar—are you in a band?" He said, "Yes, I play with Lawrence Welk," at which I laughed nervously. By then, he had figured out that we were stopping on every floor and asked my sister what was going on. She was only 12 at the time and started laughing. She told him she had hit every button. He threw his arm around her, laughing, and said that was rather funny. Then he gave her a noogie. And that was _really_ funny.
