I remember that photo of John Bonham when it arrived at Modern Drummer. The original, I believe, was a black & white, taken during Led Zeppelin's first U.S. tour. Maybe the thread starter here will be kind enough to tell us the photographer's name.

Best,

Canyonero -

Thank you. Chuck Stewart! I should have known. What a great photographer. I remember looking at this photo of Bonham with MD founder Ron Spagnardi and Features Editor Rick Mattingly. It's possible the art director was there too.

The dilemma was: it was a unique photo of John Bonham, perfect as a cover photo - but MD didn't do black-and-white covers. Answer: hire someone to hand color the photo. Remember - this was decades before Photoshop.

Best,
Scott K Fish

Very nice Bermuda! I've got that issue, but I wish mine was as cool as yours. Did you meet Ringo? If so, what year and where?

I also found some really cool Musician magazines from the 70's and 80's. The Boss, Jim Morrison, Michael Jackson, Prince, etc...

Does anyone know where to get magazine photos frames? I've looked online and they are $$$!

I didn't, but that came from Todd Trent, who handled the drums used at the photo shoot. I've also got a pic of Todd with Ringo at the shoot as proof, although it's really Todd's provenance, not mine.

I believe the pics were shot exclusively for MD, so that probably would have been early 1997.

That would be extra cool if you could get Zak to autograph it.
