It’s one of the most recognizable album covers of the ’70s. Led Zeppelin‘s ‘Houses of the Holy’ features a group of naked youngsters roaming a stone-laden earth.
TheFW has managed to track down the child models from that shoot. Samantha Gates, now 46 and the mother of a daughter named Tallulah, went on to enjoy life out of the spotlight in Cape Town. However, the same can’t be said for her younger brother Stefan.
He went on to become a celebrity chef and hosts BBC2′s ‘Cooking in the Danger Zone.’ He’s also hosted another series called ‘Eating Insects with Stefan Gates.’ The younger Gates says even though he and his sister appeared on the cover, he’d actually never heard the Led Zeppelin album until a few years ago. After declaring during a 2010 BBC Radio 4 documentary on the making of the disc that he had never heard it, he was presented with the opportunity.
