Robert Plant (Pre-Zeppelin) Stole This Harmonica

Blues legend Sonny Boy Williamson II toured Europe in the mid-60's. While in England, according to author Stephen Davis' book "Hammer of The Gods," Sonny Boy accidently set his hotel room on fire, trying to cook a rabbit in a coffee percolator! And the book also alleges that future Led Zeppelin lead singer Robert Plant stole one of Sonny Boy's harmonicas during one of his British performances! Robert and the other Zeppelin guys would steal more than just harmonicas down the road, including one of Sonny Boy Williamson's II songs, "Bring it on Home" on Zeppelin II! There were 2 Sonny Boy Williamson's in Blues history. #2, the one we're talking about here, died today in Arkansas in 1964. (Wonder if he ever got his harmonica back from Robert Plant??)
