Led Zeppelin 1968-1980

Top 

Musical Artist cd reviews and discography
Led Zeppelin may have disbanded in 1980, but their legacy lives on. Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and John 
Bonham always insisted that the music they made, onstage or in the studio, was the most important thing. This meticulous 
book turns away from Zeppelin's well-chronicled antics on the road to explore what made them the biggest rock band of 
their day and an enduring influence on generations of musicians.

Keith Shadwick, author of the acclaimed Jimi Hendrix: Musician, has written an in-depth assessment of Zeppelin's greatness and their central position in the history of rock music, as recognized by their recent "lifetime achievement" Grammy award. With many rare and seldom-seen photographs, this is the definitive vindication of Led Zeppelin's place at the pinnacle of 20th century musical achievement.

Led Zeppelin: Dazed and Confused: The Stories Behind Every Song

Top 

Musical Artist cd reviews and discography
Book Description
Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham make up Led Zeppelin, one of the greatest hard rock bands ever. This heavily illustrated book gives readers an in-depth examination of everything that inspired the songs of Led Zeppelin. What was the "House of the Holy"? Where was the "Stairway to Heaven"? Which strange encounters led to such classics as "Kashmir" and "Trampled Underfoot"? Was it an earthquake that inspired "Going to California" on their untitled fourth album? 

Dazed and Confused 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 break-up in 1980, including Unledded: No Quarter and the BBC Sessions album. You are invited to explore the inspiration behind the sound of four brilliant musicians who defined the concept of hard rock, and yet imbued their work with passionate magic and mystery. That mystery is heavily explained in Dazed and Confused.

Led Zeppelin: The Origin of the Species: How, Why, and Where It All Began

Top 

Musical Artist cd reviews and discography

Book Description
Proving that a band is truly the sum of its parts, this music history traces the influences and experiences that would later converge to form Led Zeppelin. Every recording and live session made by the future band members is traced and woven into a rich and insightful web of influences that contains a complete family tree of their musical and professional colleagues as well as a massive discography and list of live performances. Staggering insight into the workings of this period's big wigs and foot soldiers accompany details on bands and records that were recently discovered to have featured Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, 
and John Paul Jones. Rare photographs of the bandmates in their pre–Led Zeppelin 
incarnations are included along with original interviews with their friends and colleagues.
