From the Robert Plant homepage:

Robert Plant Nearly Mauled By Duane Allman
Robert Plant dodged a bullet in the form of the late Duane Allman during Led Zeppelin's first American tour. In a new revelation, drummer Butch Trucks says that when the Allman Brothers Band shared a bill with Zeppelin, Duane took strong exception to Plant's "ballet"-like stage routine and attire.

"Robert Plant starts running all over the stage with his velvet pants on, and we were all looking at each other, like 'What the f--- is this?'" Trucks told Relix magazine. "It was as much about the ballet and the costumes as about the music, if not more so."

"Duane got up and said, 'I'm either going to go up there and kick the f--- out of that guy or we're leaving.' And we all got up and left," Trucks explained. "It just infuriated Duane. He was so let down by one of his gods."

However while that story was all over the place this one wasn't...

Dickey Betts Says Butch Trucks Fabricated Duane Allman-Robert Plant Feud

Former Allman Brothers guitarist Dickey Betts has blasted the band's drummer Butch Trucks -accusing him of fabricating a clash between late rock legend Duane Allman and Robert Plant.

In a recent interview with Relix magazine, Trucks recalled Allman's alleged fury over seeing Led Zeppelin rocker Plant prancing around on stage in velvet trousers during a concert in 1969. He claimed his former bandmate had to be held back from attacking Plant after the stage antics,and had lost all respect for his idol.

Trucks said: "Robert Plant starts running all over the stage with his velvet pants on, and we were all looking at each other, (like) 'What the f--k is this?'

"It was as much about the ballet and the costumes as about the music, if not more so... Duane got up and said, 'I'm either going to go up there and kick the f-k out of that guy or we're leaving.' And we all got up and left. It just infuriated Duane. He was so let down by one of his gods."

But Betts, who left the Allman Brothers Band in 2000, is standing up for Allman - insisting the rocker wasn't "narrow-minded".

He tells the New York Post, "I know Duane didn't feel that way and never said that. We loved (Led Zeppelin guitarist, Jimmy) Page and those guys. It's ludicrous. And it's not fair to Duane Allman, who has passed away and can't speak for himself. He had velvet pants himself.

You're kidding, right? Mel Torme, "the Velvet Fog"?!

See, I told you it was obscure. Guess I'm showing my age; watched Johnny Carson too much.

I have commisioned the best velvet portait painter in Juarez to do a velvet painting of Duane chasing Robert Plant around a stage in his velvet pants with a hachet with Bonzo helping Duane in the chase because he also secretly hated Roberts pants for years..... I think Bill Graham told Plant no way those pants on his Fillmore stage, and Richard Nixon even had the "Velvet Wiretap" thing going....

I am hoping Butch sees this thread and we have a Velvet Pants Mud Slinging Battle Royale.....

I bet I watched Johnny Carson more years than you did! I remember Jack Paar! Now, that
is really showing your age!

I will vote for you for that award.

Duane dressed very mod in the Hour Glass days. Velvet would not be unusual. The version I originally heard was Duane wanted to leave when Page began playing with a violin bow, not due to Plants wardrobe. The kick "his ass" comment has been taken to literally. I don't think Duane had any intention of jumping on stage and beating up Jimmy Page.
