Description by OLDIES.com:

Led Zeppelin was formed in the summer of 1968 as a vehicle for the ambitions of ex-Yardbird Jimmy Page. In just over a year, the band - Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham - had become one of the biggest acts in rock. They remained at the top until their disbandment in 1980 following the death of Bonham.

This exhilarating new book by Keith Shadwick, author of the accaimed Jimi Hendrix: Musician, could not be more timely. With dozens of black-and-white photographs of the group onstage and backstage this book turns away from Zeppelin's well-chronicled antics on the road to explore what made them the biggest rock band of their day.

Now with successive generations of musicians rediscovering Zeppelin's inspiring work, and the band themselves recently being awarded a rare "lifetime achievement" Grammy, Led Zeppelin is long overdue for an artistic re-evaluation - and this book does just that.

Product Description:

Led Zeppelin was the biggest band of the 1970s and a key contributor to the history of rock. Though the group disbanded after the 1980 death of drummer John Bonham, its stature among fans and its influence on musicians has continued to grow. Despite the band's prominence, no book has fully explored this beloved band’s incredible musical legacy — until now. Led Zeppelin is a detailed and insightful look at the how, where, and why of Led Zeppelin’s greatness. The band is examined within the historical context of the 1960s and '70s. Also examined are the musical and cultural events during all stages of each member's career, providing fascinating details about how the band created its revolutionary music.
