In 1974 Crawdaddy magazine commissioned William S. Burroughs to attend a Led Zeppelin concert and interview the band’s guitarist Jimmy Page. Charles Gatewood, who had previously photographed Burroughs and Brion Gysin, documented the occasion. In their transcribed conversation, Burroughs and Page discussed subjects including magic, infra-sound, and trance music.
