Led Zeppelin legend Robert Plant gave up school to form a rock band because he wanted an escape from his deluge of homework.
The rocker was spending several hours every night completing his schoolwork, but he was distracted after seeing the success of musicians including Elvis Presley.
And Plant became so enthralled with rock 'n' roll that he quit school when he was a teenager to take up music.
He says, "I was looking for a way out as I was a grammar school boy and doing three hours of homework a night and at that time it was 1961. On the one hand, you had Eddie Cochran and Elvis telling us of another world and on the other hand I was doing trigonometry and Latin and algebra."
