" I’m sure you will all join with me to wish Robert Plant a very happy birthday " - Jimmy Page
Jimmy Page photographed by Herb Greene, 1969.
"I took separate photos of all four guys. My whole intent was to make people look smart. All these guys I encountered were pretty charming and intelligent. They were not fools and well they were artists on multiple levels.
(…) I always tell people not to smile.All my portraits reflect that. I tell them to look at the camera and really focus on the lens.”
Amazing vintage pics of the group from the lens of Herb Greene
Photographer Herb Greene had barely heard of Led Zeppelin when they came into his San Francisco studio in the first weeks of 1969 for a photo shoot. The group’s debut album hit shelves that same month and they were in the midst of their inaugural American tour, opening up for Country Joe and the Fish during a four night stand at the Fillmore West. “I knew about the Yardbirds,” he says. “I knew nothing about this new band with Jimmy Page. But they booked a session because they wanted some 8-by-10 glossies, as they used to say in the trade.” Greene estimates he spent less than an hour with the band, but during that time he snapped off an incredible series of photos of ZeppelinGreene shot Zeppelin at a dilapidated, three-story building on the west side of San Francisco that used to house a theater. “I didn’t give them much direction,” he says. “These guys were on the road and really didn’t want to be there. I had 40 minutes, so I took individual portraits and a group shot.. In those days, it was easier to just plop a tripod down and start shooting a band.”
