Led Zeppelin Filmmakers Raising Funds To Finish Documentary

A fundraising effort has been launched to complete Fleecing Led Zeppelin, a documentary about how the band had $200,000 stolen from them in 1973. The filmmakers need $35,000 to bring the project to completion and are hoping fans can help raise the money.

"We need your help to finish the film - we need $35,000 for editing, sound design, music rights, DVD, advertising and film festivals, which ain't cheap," say screenwriter Jackie May Tolliver and director Gabe Tolliver.

Of the documentary, the filmmakers said that "it's a fan movie, for lovers of history, or for folks who just want to know what happened to that money." They continued, "there's no sign of the money. But somebody took it. Was it manager Peter Grant? Road manager Richard Cole? Housekeeping?"

The $200,000 disappeared from the vault of the Drake Hotel in New York City, while the band was in town to perform at Madison Square Garden.

Fans are being offered a range of incentives for donating money to the project via Indiegogo. The benefit closes November 3.
