This awesome rock shirt pays tribute to one of the most beloved groups to emerge out of the 1970s, Led Zeppelin. The band was only active from 1968 to 1980, but during that time they managed to leave a lasting mark on rock and roll history. In fact, when the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, the museum stated in their bio that Led Zeppelin was as influential during the 1970s as the Beatles were during the 1960s.
This shirt features Led Zeppelin's iconic Icarus logo, which they used for their own record label, that they launched in 1974 after their contract with Atlantic Records expired. The original intention was just to use the graphic for their label, Swan Song Records, but over time it came to be synonymous with the band. The image is actually based off of a drawing from the American painter William Rimmer, titled "Evening (Fall of Day)".
This shirt was made after the band dissolved following the death of their drummer, John Bonham. After that point, the remaining Led Zeppelin members collaborated together and also played a few one-off reunion performances, but much of Led Zeppelin's enduring legacy lives on thanks to the numerous compilation albums that began being sold in the 1980s. Despite the band's short career, they still are one of the best-selling musical artists of all time.
Fits like a modern unisex adult large. There's a small hole on the front and several more on the back, see pics.
