Led Zeppelin played their last outside UK date at Knebworth Park on
August 11 1972. To celebrate this event, and the 40th anniversary
of the formation of the band, Knebworth is holding a Led Zeppelin
Memorabilia Exhibition from August 1st until September 3rd 2008.
The exhibition was the inspiration of Annie Hollinshead, a lifelong
supporter of the group, and is in support of the ABC Trust for the children
of Brazil, of which Jimmy Page is the patron.
Zacron, who has contributed Archival Edition Prints remastered from his
artwork for the group, was invited to adress a select invited assembly of
serious enthusiasts and collectors of memorabilia.
The artist was met by press cameras following a dramatic arrival, he was
welcomed by Annie Hollinshead and was presented with a book,
'Knebworth, 30 Years of the greatest rock venue in the world' by
Martha Lytton Cobbold, the current resident of the great house and the
host of the exhibition.
Zacron, who was interviewed for national radio, was also presented with
a specially printed brochure produced by by Annie Hollinshead and already
highly collectable as it is a limited edition.
The address included the artist's time with the group in 1970, the stories behind
the art and comments about the way technology has expanded techniques
available to artists. Zacron also rose to the challenge by speaking of intractible
British attitudes the need for creative people not to be type-cast and restricted
by prejudice. He announced that he was a fellow supporter and enthusiast
of Led Zeppelins music. He was met with great enthusiasm and cheering from
all those present.
