Led Zeppelin scored another Number One album, this time at
the expense of one of Plant and Pages heroes, Elvis
Presley. The two band members had met Presley in Las Vegas
in 1972. A year later, in its second week on the chart,
May 12 1973, Houses Of The Holy knocked Presleys Aloha
From Hawaii Via Satellite from Number One on the Billboard
Album Chart. For the cover artists, Hipgnosis, this was
indeed a landmark year, as that Elvis album had previously
stolen the Number One spot from Pink Floyds The Dark Side
Of The Moon. Storm Thorgersons artwork for that Pink Floyd
album is also available as a hand-signed limited edition
fine art print.
I became totally obsessed with Led Zeppelin, they were
the first band I actually listened to. I put on Houses Of
The Holy and just sat there. Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters, Q
Magazine, March 2003.
Arguably one of the most intriguing pieces of sleeve
artwork, Houses Of The Holy was also one of the most
difficult to assemble. With Led Zeppelins US tour breaking
box office records previously held by The Beatles, the
music press had to concede that they were now officially
the biggest band in the world. In this respect, at least,
they no longer had anything to prove. Toby Manning, Q
Magazine, 2003.
At the end of the book, (Arthur C. Clarkes Childhoods
End), all of earths children gather together to be taken
off into space. I suggested we take a family to the Giants
Causeway in Northern Ireland and photograph them climbing
the octagonal steps there so it looked like they were
climbing up to be taken away. I decided to take a black
and white photograph and hand tint it in the studio. I shot
the children in various positions then cut them out of the
photos and made a collage. Aubrey Powell, Q Magazine,
