Led Zeppelin – Check Out These Rare, Intimate Photos From Their Early Days

8 images

Almost 50 years since their formation, fascination with Led Zeppelin shows no sign of waning: the ‘Led Zeppelin From The Beginning’ exhibition at Proud Galleries in central London promises to shed new light on the rock pioneers’ early years. Contributors to the photography exhibition include former Yardbirds bassist-turned-snapper Chris Dreja and ex-tabloid hack Michael Brennan, both of whom had rare and intimate access to the band at the start of their career. They will be unveiling their shots – most of which have never been seen before – when the exhibition launches this Friday (August 21). We spoke to Dreja and Brennan to hear the stories behind the pictures.
