Looking for photos of Led Zeppelin's Showco road crew

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am currently working on a book about Led Zeppelin's sound and lighting company Showco. If anyone could please assist me

in finding photos of the Showco crew at work or backstage I would appreciate it. Please check out my original Led Zeppelin Showco

shirts in the vintage swag section. I look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Planet Page! Wow!!!!! Thank you so much. These are truly beautiful. I personally know a few of the gentlemen in these photos. It's so cool to see them as

young men conquering the US with Led Zeppelin on the mammoth 1977 tour. Thank you!!!!

I've liked your page at FB. Looking forward to SHOWCO the book (in 2019). I have always wanted to read such a book. I wish you well on your Kickstarter campaign. This story needs to be (finally) told. Behind the scenes are interesting... But Led Zeppelin 'behind the scenes' is doubly so!

I enjoyed this artifact of a list of Zeppelin related equipment from 1973 posted on the FB page:

Hello, I have a barn full of the original Showco speakers used by Led Zeppelin, 3Dog night, and The Who in their early years. I have a letter from the President of Showco, Charles Kitch of authenticity.

If you are interesting contact me for pictures or a visit. I have had these for many years and these are the only remaining units left that I know of. Mid bass chambers, tri-flex horns, JBL horns, and other assorted enclosures all used by these groups.
