1975 AMERICA TOUR BAND & CREW HOCKEY SHIRTS

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know anything about these shirts or have any pictures of any Band and/or Crew Members wearing these shirts? I think only 8 or 12 were made.....4 for the band and 4 for VIP Swan Song or Crew Members,and each had their names embroidered on one of the sleeves.

I believe Jimmy wore one onstage on the final date of the 1975 USA tour on 27th March at The Forum in Inglewood,Los Angeles.

Here`s a picture of Jimmy`s one from the "Vintage Swag" section of the official website  http://www.ledzeppelin.com/photos/memorabilia/vintage-swag?page=2

Not much info.... I don't think I've ever seen a member of the band wearing one, but I do recall a photo of Jason Bonham wearing one in the late 70s.

Just as an aside, I absolutely love this one on the 'Vintage Swag' page of the website.

Product Description

In 1975 Led Zeppelin released Physical Graffiti a double-LP. It was very popular as it hit #1 on the charts. A super size American tour was played to feature the music on the album.

This American style red, white and blue custom hockey jersey is just like the one guitarist Jimmy Page wore on the last night of the 1975 tour. It features stitched white cursive lettering across the verso nameplate area, “Jerry Weintraub – Concerts West Presents”. Large block letters (sewn-on) present,  “Led Zeppelin American Tour 1975.” The front chest sports two white patches with blue lettering including a circular Swan Song and other art design on the opposite side.

The original crew member’s (owner) name “Jeff” is stitched on a patch on the right sleeve. These jerseys are extremely rare as they were a limited edition from the promoter (Concerts West). They were only given to the band members and a few of the VIP crew.

Black lacquer engraved plaque (as provenance) reads, “JEFFERY P. BENNETT – 1975 – SEX, DRUGS & ROCK N’ ROLL – 1995 MAYOR CITY OF CORONA.”

The provenance letter from Bennett details the origin, “I received my 1975 Tour Jersey from John Bonham who I worked with and the other members of the band from 1972-1977. It was a gift for all I had done during my tenure. A few more were also given out I believe a total of 8 were made.”

I believe that is Danny Goldberg, to whom the photo is credited.

Anyway, Jeffery Bennett is not known for his honesty: http://activerain.com/blogsview/2361764/ex-corona-mayor-found-guilty-of-lying-to-the-fbi

However, he did apparently post a comment concerning another jersey, which he called a fake:

The profile photo of the commentator does match that of Bennett: http://unclejoe.com/onair/miller2.htm

That is definitely Danny Goldberg.
