  1. Great photo! The man in the black hat that Plant is talking to is John Bonham. He wore that suit throughout their 1975 tour.

    • Thanks for the additional info’, Todd, and thank you for visiting my Spectrum blog. Hope you’re enjoying it. More Zep’ will be posted in the future.

    • The suit and bowler hat is a replica of the uniforms worn by Malcolm McDowell and his crew when they went out for a “night of Violence” in the Stanley Kubrick film “A Clockwork Orange.” And John Bonham was one violent MF on the drums !!!
