John Bonham and Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin hated flying and soon talked their label into renting┬áthe band its own plane so they could fly without having to deal with other people on the flight. Page in particular needed a larger space and made himself a private room on the plane so he could deal with his fear, vertigo and self-described “psychosis.” Bonham on the other hand used to drink whiskey until he passed out before the plane even took off. Bonham died in 1980 after a drinking binge that saw him digest more than 40 shots of vodka. He passed out and choked on his own vomit. He was only 32 years old.
