Detroit, U.S.A. 31 January 1975

This shot is one of a series of captures of the heavyweight rockers, taken by photographer Michael Brennan, lounging in one of the back rooms on their famous Boeing plane, the ’Starship’. It was 1975 and the band were en-route to Detroit to play at the city’s Olympic Arena.

They were chatting and drinking, apparently to calm their nerves as they weren't too fond of flying after experiencing terrifying turbulence on a small plane a couple of years earlier. Although, they found they could cope with being airborne on their palatial chartered plane. Elsewhere on board was a 30-foot long couch and an electronic organ, which was built into a bar and a main bedroom, complete with a white fur bedspread and shower room. Lia Nicholls for Joe

‘My photographs of Led Zeppelin from the winter of 1975 in Detroit had been in hiding for thirty years. I recently visited my film archives in the vault at the London 'Diamond District' of Hatton Garden where they had been stored for decades. Most of my favourite photographs from this turbulent evening have, so luckily, survived the test of time. I travelled with the band aboard their private plane they called the Starship. The Starship was probably the most legendary private plane there ever was.’ Michael Brennan.
