"When Giants Walked the Earth: A Biography Of Led Zeppelin "

June 13th, 2011 No comments
Hands down my most favorite rock group of all time. Forget The Stones, forget The Beatles... nothing says hedonistic creative inspiration like Led Zeppelin. This 500-page biography recounts their separate beginnings, their once in a lifetime chance meeting, and every album broken down in detail from what was going on in their lives, and the formation of the tracks included...

This is some serious Led Zep nerd shit. It's a story of their rise and eventual fall from heaven, directly told from the members themselves and the assistants and friends who surrounded this juggernaut through it all. I have to admit, you always hear the stories of 70's rock bands and their drug induced craziness but to read the stories is a true eye opener on what was the "norm" back then. You also find out just how much artists "borrow" from older artists, makes Elvis look like a saint at times... Timeline runs all the way through Bonzo's unfortunate death and the many attempted tries at a reunion tour until their 2008 farewell concert... Load up your iPod and press play cause there is only one way to read this...
