Herb Greene’s studio shoot of Led Zeppelin from the band’s first US tour in 1969 still stands as one of the greatest rock photo sessions ever.
In the middle of the shoot, the photographer got a call. The Grateful Dead were downstairs and needed a photo. Minutes later, the two legendary bands crossed paths. It wasn’t pretty. Pigpen pulled out his revolver. Zeppelin, fresh-faced and making its first US tour, freaked out and left without paying. But Herb Greene’s portraits from that session made history.
