Rare Artwork Turns Up In Zep LP

Sometime before his death earlier this year, Rick Hobbs, a long-time personal assistant to Jimmy Page, tucked some rare sketches by artist John Everett Millais in 1848 into one of his Led Zeppelin albums for safe keeping.  The pencil artwork is thought to have been a gift to Hobbs from the former Zeppelin guitarist, who has amassed an impressive collection of Victorian art.  Pressed and protected from light, the four pieces remained in excellent condition.  They go to auction Saturday (8/14) in Honiton, Devon, UK.  Perhaps Page will be among the bidders.
