Classic horror, 40s film noir and modern sci-fi came together in the company’s latest rare poster event.
|A Jimmy Page Jack Daniels poster is a poster featuring a photograph of Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page drinking from a bottle of Jack Daniels bourbon whilst backstage at a concert during the 1970s.
The poster features a photograph of the band taken backstage before a concert in Indianapolis in 1975. It was taken by the celebrated photographer Neal Preston, whose candid images of the band were later reprinted as the book "Led Zeppelin": Photographs by Neal Preston.
Preston is renowned for his portraits of musicians and performers from the 1970s to the present day, and has captured artists such as Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones and Madonna.
The Jimmy Page Jack Daniels poster
The photograph shows Page leaning back in his chair and swigging heavily from a bottle of Jack Daniels, as other members of the band can be seen eating and smoking in the background. The image is iconic in its portrayal of the hard drinking excesses of the band during the mid 1970s, and is one of the most famous photographs ever taken of Page.
How much is a Jimmy Page Jack Daniels poster worth?
Posters of the image have been printed in large numbers since the 1970s.
As with other posters which were printed specifically for the retail market (as opposed to commercial posters which were never offered for sale to the public), there is little or no value in vintage copies as they were printed in huge numbers.
Modern prints of the poster can be bought on a variety of websites for around $10 - $15.
