Neal Preston is one of rock’s most celebrated and iconic photographers. Neal’s relationship with Cameron nearly goes back to the beginning of his illustrious career. We chatted with Neal on location in Hawaii about his career, his new iBook Led Zeppelin: Sound and Fury and much more.

When did you first meet Cameron? I know you guys worked together at Circus magazine and Rolling Stone, but had you met earlier while he was writing for the San Diego Door or Creem?

You know, I actually don’t recall the very first time we met — but I know that around the time we met he was definitely writing for the San Diego Door. I remember my girlfriend Bobbi (who was a publicist with rock p.r. agency Gershman, Gibson and Stromberg) shoving a copy of the Door in front of me, virtually demanding that I “read this kid’s stuff!! He’s only 14 years old!!!!”

Yeah, he could write, but what was far more astounding to me was that he was a really good ping pong player.  There was a ping-pong table in the rec center where he lived.  I was 5 years older than him, yet he probably beat me 80-90% of the time.  I hated losing to him, more than he ever knew.  In fact I’m still upset about it.

Led Zeppelin Flashback

Cameron with Jimmy Page

I thought today would be a great day to share some Led Zeppelin. First up is a piece entitled I Love Led Zeppelin that Cameron did for UK’s The Telegraph back in 2007 to honor the Zeppelin reunion. The article surrounds a 1972 encounter that the band had with The King and is new to the Journalism section. Enjoy!

It might also be a good time to point out the Rolling Stone cover story that Cameron did in 1975, along with the small piece on Presence and the mysterious object on the cover of the LP from summer 1976. There’s also the 1973 Circus magazine article that focuses on the band’s non-stop touring.

Oh yeah, and don’t forget his liner notes for the Zeppelin box set and his introduction on the Led Zeppelin Portraits book by longtime friend Neal Preston. Whew! That should keep you busy for awhile getting your fix, but more Zeppelin articles/interviews are coming.
