Zeppelin? That will be the day...and it
|The photo shoot was held on July 8th at the
Hit Factory in New York City for Esquire
Magazine and their special 70th anniversary
issue. The idea behind the shoot was to have
current artists portray certain music icons.
Metallica was asked to portray the legendary Led
Zeppelin, and they were all up for it..until the
day of the shoot of course.
|A few times during the take, Lars bursted out
"who ok'd this fucking idea?", with a big grin
on his face. To get in to the vibe they played
the classic "Whole Lotta Love" over and over
again. The guys must have watched a few Led
Zeppelin videos because they all had their moves
locked in pretty good.
|To make sure things were authentic, tour
manager Rex oversaw the clothes and their
performance. Rex has worked with Led Zeppelin
since the early early days. "Wow, I have not had
this long of hair in 10 years, it feels great",
said James with a smile while wearing his Robert
Plant wig. This was definitely one of the most
unique and fun photo sessions the band has done
in a long time.
