Overview

Led Zeppelin: The Stories Behind Every Led Zeppelin Song by Chris Welch


From the howling desperation of “Dazed And Confused” to the sonic bombardment and inimitable riffing of “Whole Lotta Love,” Led Zeppelin’s hard-driving mix of blues-rock and funk electrified generations of fans. Superbly illustrated, Led Zeppelin: The Stories Behind Every Led Zeppelin Song delves into the true-life tales and people that inspired one of the greatest bands of all time. What were “The Houses of the Holy”? Was there a “Stairway to Heaven”? Which strange encounters led to such classics as “Kashmir” and “Tramples Underfoot”? This in-depth look reveals the roots and origins of the songs on all eight of the band’s celebrated studio albums, together with all the stories behind material released after Zeppelin’s breakup in 1980—including Unledded: No Quarter and the BBC Sessions album.

A short but satisfying glimpse into the background and artistic process of Led Zeppelin. Some good stories but far too brief and, like the life of the band, leaves the reader wishing there was more.
