Overview

Whole lotta Zep-related info in this definitive reference to one of the greatest bands in the history of rock music

The first exhaustive A-to Z-reference work to explore the group's world and career catalogs every song on each of their albums, every major gig, background information on the four musicians and everyone who worked with them, venues, contemporaries, incidents, and articles. Led Zeppelin is a band requiring no introduction—their fusion of blues, rock, proto-metal, and vivid lyrical imagery ushered in the 1970's heavy rock boom, invented stadium rock, and influenced every would-be rocker from L. A. to Mumbai. This meticulous study unearths numerous facts and figures that even the most ardent follower will have missed, and takes a more in-depth look at areas that warrant only a passing mention in a typical biography. From the classic, untouchable run of self-titled LPs to the legendary U. S. arena tours, everything fans need to know is covered here and the book's item-by-item approach makes it a perfect read to drop in and out of, or to use as a reference point—now what was the name of that third track on Led Zep IV?

From the Publisher
"The whole book is shot through with streetwise humor but its easy style can’t hide the oodles of research that goes into something like this."  —Record Collector on AC/DC: The Encyclopaedia
