Cameron Crowe
On getting Led Zeppelin on the cover
Matthew Perpetua and Eric Helton

Sigur Ros frontman Jonsi recently teamed up with Cameron Crowe to create the soundtrack for the director's new movie, We Bought a Zoo. Backstage at a special event promoting the film in New York City, Crowe told his collaborator about the time when, as a 15-year-old writer for Rolling Stone, he managed to convince Led Zeppelin to appear on the cover of the magazine despite their overwhelming bitterness about having their first album panned in the review section. "They had memorized it, word for word," says Crowe.
