Editorial Reviews

"A to Zeppelin: The Story of Led Zeppelin" chronicles the colorful and controversial history of rock's heaviest band. Through candid interviews with long-time tour manager Richard Cole, members of the Yardbirds, Vanilla Fudge, Bad Company, The Ramones, Foreigner, record engineer Andy Johns, and ex-girlfriends Lori Mattix and Pamela Des Barres- the compelling saga of this enduring rock institution is explored. Literally hundreds of rare photos and archival Led Zeppelin interview footage produces a visual barrage to illustrate their fascinating story.

This documentary is not endorsed by Led Zeppelin and contains no Led Zeppelin music or performances.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good overview of Zep's history June 16, 2004
I wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered this DVD but when I watched it, I was pleasantly surprised. I provides a good overview of Zep's history from start to finish.
It starts by showing how the band was influenced (American blues) and then shows how the band was formed. The documentary then goes into the history that mostly all Zep fans know about.
Another interesting thing about the documentary is that it shows how the musical "kings" of the 60s (the Beatles) gave way to the musical "kings" of the 70s (Led Zep). Bonham even talks about going to see that Beatles and being annoyed that he couldn't hear them.
One drawback of the DVD is that it doesn't contain any actual Led Zep music. This is because the DVD is unauthorized but the content makes up for it.
I gave the DVD 4 stars because once the documentary gets to the point where Zep is an established band there is not as much attention to detail as there was at the beginning. Still, I did learn somethings about Zeppelin that I didn't know so the DVD was worth it. Besides, there is plenty of information out there about Led Zep from 1971-1980.

5.0 out of 5 stars RARE PHOTOS, FOOTAGE- INTERESTING INSIGHT July 6, 2004
By A Customer
Yes this unauthorized DVD on Led Zeppelin is void of any Led Zeppelin music but it nonetheless is a very interesting alternative perspective on the career of the band. There are loads of old photos going back to even the "New Yardbirds" era of the band that I've never seen. Also we get to see and actually go inside HEADLEY GRANGE in the English countryside where Zep wrote and recorded so many classics. This isn't your typical unauthorized deal where the only people interviewed are journalists and roadies, this has long, excellent interviews with many people who were there like Zep road manager, Richard Cole, Page's legendary girlfriend, Lori Mattix, Carmine Appice who was on the first Zep tours playing with Vanilla Fudge and more. I really liked this DVD. Any Zep fan would.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but not that exciting October 13, 2005
I enjoyed this DVD as a relatively new Led Zeppelin fan. It was interesting hearing about the band and how they came to be, but I would have liked to have heard from the 4 geniuses themselves. A little blurb here and there of past interviews was good, but it would have been better to hear from them present day. We didn't get to hear any of their music and that was unfortunate. A little bit of history to this great band, but lacking in content.

1.0 out of 5 stars No Zepplin Music October 7, 2005
I expected something like those VH1 behind the scenes kind of rockumentary but was sadly disappointed. There was no Zeppelin music during the film. No live footage and no interviews with any of the band members for this film. The only footage from band members were from old news or other sources from 30 years ago. Although this should be included, they apparently had no cooperation from Paige or Plant for this film. If the artist decided not to support it, it may be for a good reason. There must be something better out there, avoid this film!
