Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Excellent! It's one of the very few guides that gets under the skin of the music and interprets what was in the mind of its creators." —Bruce Dickinson, vocalist, Iron Maiden

"It was refreshing to see Martin's enthusiasm for sort of the less popular Zeppelin albums. Cheery reading." —John Paul Jones, bass player, Led Zeppelin
