Finally, there's some brand-new and exciting information about one of rock'n'roll's greatest bands. After 40 years, it's hard to believe that anything new could be written about British rock super group, Led Zeppelin. But this is it. Essential reading for any Led Zeppelin fan or scholar of popular music history, this book takes an unprecedented approach to the group and its music. More than 40 primary source interviews provide unparalleled insights into what made Led Zeppelin so exciting in concert. The quest to explain why its music endures and continues to dominate the playlists of classic rock radio today is a fascinating journey. Readers will thrill to find out what deejays, promoters, musicians, studio personnel and audience members have to say about the band destined for musical greatness. Contributors to the book include published Led Zeppelin authors Susan Fast, Robert Godwin, Luis Rey and Howard Mylett; rock reviewers Philip Elwood, Rick McGrath, Jeff Miers, Jeffrey Morgan; educators Rob Bowman, Donna Halper and Craig Morrison; broadcasters Don Fitzpatrick, JJ Jackson, JP Piccillo, Redbeard and Jeff Woods. This collectible, commemorative 40th anniversary edition with its gold-foil imprint is a reference book in terms of look, format and information. But the text is so compellingly written and the information so new, it reads like a novel that is difficult to set aside. Hundreds of illustrations complement the text. Many of the pictures -which include photos of the band, the venues they played, related posters and other memorabilia - are published here for the first time. A section of colour plates includes photos and rare artifacts from the group's first-ever tour in 1968 right through its 2007 reunion concert at London's O2 Arena. This is NOT an exposé, tell-all or fanzine type of book. It's hard-core research, compellingly and passionately written for those who know nothing - or everything - about Led Zeppelin.
