Led Zeppelin Was Once Presented with Their Gold Albums at a Live Sex Show in Sweden

Pin it

A rare NSFW photograph of the event.

In one of those rare bits of pop culture ephemera that seems to have slipped through the cracks, a Reddit user posted a unique photograph of the time Led Zeppelin visited a sex club in 1973. On March 5th, the legendary rockers were presented with their Gold albums at a sex club in Stockholm, Sweden following the release of their album Houses of the Holy.

Legend has it that manager Peter Grant suggested to Metronome Records that Led Zeppelin host their Platinum and Gold reception at notorious sex club Chat Noir instead of some dull reception hall. Swedish music photographer Bengt H. Malmqvist was there to capture the spectacular moment when a couple climbed on the stage and starting performing in front of the group. And because they are mere mortals, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Bonham, and John Paul Jones began to giggle amongst themselves during the "performance."

The full collection of photos from the peculiar evening were recently put up for auction by Bonhams, in case you have a spare $34,000 lying around and an urge to find out if Robert Plant really was a back door man.

You now have enough cultural fodder for your next happy hour. You're welcome.
