Product description

Review

"Sensational." --New York Times

"Entertaining, thoughtful." --Los Angeles Times

"His access and attention to detail make this a definitive work...an essential source for anyone eager to learn about the era when rock stars ruled the world." --Publishers Weekly

"Wall does well to shine light on the myths and music magic of Led Zep--rendering what could have been cartoonish real and sincere." --TimeOut Chicago

"[T]hat Wall can add so much fresh detail to the Led Zep story is in itself an extraordinary achievement...(and) he manages to humanize these planet-striding giants while doing so..." --Classic Rock Magazine

"It deftly strikes the balance between lofty authority and finding a way to get inside the heads of its subjects." --The Guardian (UK)

"[T]his is the big one: a fat, juicy biography of the biggest band ever." --Daily Telegraph (UK)

About the Author
