UK, 1973, hard rock

Led ZeppelinHouses of the Holy: So I put this on the record player that night, sit back and watch the record spin as I’m listening, and then I look across the table and see my teenage daughter sitting there with a sketch pad and pen, inking out this intricate piece of abstract art. I ask her what she’s doing, and she smiles, “I’m drawing my response to the music.” Then she flips back and shows me all her other art-responses, to albums like The Sunlandic Twins and Exile on Coldharbour Lane. Oh my goodness I was so happy and proud in that moment.
