The legendary rock band will finally tell their story in their own words.

The so far untitled project covers the band's early years, following the rise of all four members through the '60s until 1970 when ‘Led Zeppelin II’ knocked the longstanding Beatles' 'Abbey Road' off the top of the US charts. 

Directed by ‘s Bernard MacMahon, the film has interviews with Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, as well as previously unseen interviews with the late John Bonham.

This will be the first official time the band have taken part in a documentary about their story.

The film is currently in post-production, so we hope for news of a release date (and title!) soon.

The documentary was written by Bernard MacMahon and Allison McGourty, edited by Dan Gitlin, with sound supervision by Nicholas Bergh, and produced by Allison McGourty, Bernard MacMahon, Garbage guitarist Duke Erikson and Ged Doherty.
