Think about ZEPPELIN LED and the image that comes to mind would be of the band straddling the world as the archetypal “rock gods”, defining the 1970s like no other artist has. Dig deeper though, and there’s plenty more to ZEPPELIN nothing but hard rock and bluster, with folk and blues that have been strongly anchored in their catalog since the very beginning. This book explores each ZEPPELIN LED track recorded during their existence from a decade before John BonhamThe death of brought down the curtain, going through facts, anecdotes, analyzes and a small dose of humor here and there.
Tastes of “Cashmere”, “Stairway to Heaven” and “Full of Love” and their ilk, which have entered the public consciousness, to the deeper cuts only fans will know, this book covers them all, while peeking into the stories behind the often groundbreaking cover art, and the way albums just recorded.
Celebrating triumphs and questionable low points, it’s an alternate history of the band, told through the most important element – the music itself – that has influenced so many over the years. The story of ZEPPELIN LED is a wild ride. This book shows you why.
