“I sold my first strap to the amazing ROBERT PLANT 1971!” by Jan Nicolas. “I had been working in leather for a while before I started making straps.  I had a few beautiful ones hanging in my studio/office.  Led Zeppelin were in town at the Continental Hyatt ‘riot’ House Hotel.  My friend Linda and I used to spend weekends hanging out in the coffee shop to star gaze.  In the evening, they had a line winding through the lobby to accommodate all the people who wanted to meet Rock Stars.  

“This was a pretty quiet Saturday afternoon, and I grabbed a strap that I thought would suit RP and we found him hanging out in the lobby with body guards, groupies and photographers.  

“I was so shy, that my girlfriend had to call him over to look at the strap.  He loved it, he paid $100 for it and gladly posed for a photo.  Happily, one of the magazine photographers was a friend, and took this picture for me.  I was still in high school, and I was  completely overwhelmed when Mr. Plant cuddled right up to me for the picture.  Now, it is my all time favorite.”

“Music is for every single person that walks the planet.”

Robert Plant, November 1971 (Manchester on the 24th?), backstage with Jimmy’s Giannini Craviola 12-string acoustic guitar. 

Jimmy played it onstage during “Tangerine”, from ZEPtember 1971 in Japan through the end of the US tour in June 1972.

(I can’t pin down the date for this photo of Robert any closer than this because he wore that shirt for several November 1971 shows, some of which we’re not sure we have any pictures for….but there were other backstage photos in Manchester, of Jimmy and Jonesy, so it’s a reasonable guess. I’m happy to be corrected, though!)
