John Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Drum Kit  

“Wow Ross …Truly beautiful work … Thanks.”

Robert Plant

 

 

This was a project for Robert Plant to shoot John Bonham’s legendary 1968 Gray Pearl Ludwig drum kit (No 664107) which was used to create the thunderous drums on “When the Levee Breaks” on Led Zeppelin 4 recorded at Headley Grange.

The shots where produced for an auction to sell off the kit to raise funds for a statue of the drummer in his home town of Redditch.

This was a shoot I did with Robert Plant for his new album Lullaby and the Ceaseless Roar. He’d asked me to shoot some concept shots for his new album based on ideas he had in his mind. It was a shoot that involved a wind-up tin mouse, 3 real mice, Nepture, a Moroccan lamp and a fireplace! He used one of the images on the etching of the vinyl album.
