Richard Drew, the man who created the cover art for Led Zeppelin's "III" album, has died.

Bing: More on Zacron

The reclusive artist, known professionally as Zacron, lost his battle with cancer in January, but his family members announced his passing only recently. He was 68.

Drew studied art with Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page at the U.K.'s Kingston College of Art and created a book with Page in the mid-1960s, according to Classic Rock magazine.

He created groundbreaking album art for Led Zeppelin when he inserted a picture-filled rotating disc under the cover image.

Sorry to read about this.
I have this LP and it's the original pressing with the metal ring in the center. This is supposed to be more valuable.
Also have the 8track tape which isn't valuable at all.

R.I.P. Richard Drew.
