"Led Zeppelin" Signed German Teen Magazine Spread, Signed by all Four Members Around the Time "Led Zeppelin III" Album Was Released

A magazine spread from the German language teen magazine "Bravo" signed by all four original members of the English rock band "Led Zeppelin." The magazine page, in full, vibrant color, shows members of the group around the time that their third studio album, "Led Zeppelin III," was released in October 1970. Framed and matted behind glass. Not examined out of the frame. The sight size of the magazine spread is 10.75" x 7.5" while the overall framed size is 25.5" x 19.5" x .75." Accompanied by a Letter of Authenticity from PSA / DNA Authentication Services dated June 29, 2016.

The magazine page is displayed at the center of an aesthetically pleasing montage showing reproductions of the band's first seven album covers, from "Led Zeppelin" (1969) through "Presence" (1976) (along with an unidentified eighth cover at lower right.) The magazine insert is signed by, from left to right:

- John Bonham (1948-1980), drummer
- Robert Plant (born 1948), vocalist
- Jimmy Page (born 1944), guitarist
- John Paul Jones (born 1946), guitarist and keyboardist

"Led Zeppelin" enjoyed twelve years of significant commercial success (1968-1980) before it was disbanded following the accidental death of John Bonham. The group's third studio album "Led Zeppelin III" ranked No. 1 on U.S. and U.K. music charts after its release in the fall of 1970, and anticipated the intense celebrity which came from their next album's instant classic "Stairway to Heaven." Critics remarked on the shift in musical tone found in "Led Zepellin III," as the band experimented with mixing rock, folk, and blues.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
