Who Would Win in a (Quiz Show) Fight: Robert Plant or Dave Gahan?

British TV can be wonderfully wacky. Witness this 1983 TV appearance by Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode and Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant on Pop Quiz, hosted by BBC radio presenter Mike Reid. By the way, the show also featured Phil Lynott (Thin Lizzy), Bob Geldof, Roger Taylor (Queen), Midge Ure (Ultravox), Cliff Richard, David Gilmour (Pink Floyd), Ian Gillan (Deep Purple) and many others.
