I do wish some of the interviews were longer - e.g. with Engineer Eddie Kramer - he must've had a lot more insights...but we get one story about Black Country Woman. Joe Perry from Aerosmith gives a long interview but is fuzzy on many details :) while we manage to hear from Bad Company drummer Simon Kirke about his John Bonham moment and A & R man Phil Carson about working on Swan Song. So there are certainly some nice anecdotes within these pages. Denny Somach doesn't always ask the deepest questions but these are minor quibbles. Well worth the spend.

I purchased this book in 2012 and didn't give it too much thought afterwords. Just today my 14-year old daughter (not a fan yet, but knows something about the band) was browsing through the pages and suddenly asked me something very embarrassing about the book.
There's a large black and white photo on page 81 taken from the double wedding day party of Richard Cole and Simon Kirke According to the photo text, "...in the back row are, from left to right, two unidentified guests..." Well, well, well. Those "unidentified" guests are, from left, Benji Lefevre (Robert Plant's personal aide and a major figure in the Zep camp in the second half of the seventies) and one Robert Anthony Plant (he used to be the vocalist in Led Zeppelin!!!). Even my young daughter knew Robert Plant in the photo! Should I say more?
An editing error? Couldn't be. On the positive side though, among the interviews there are short bits with Phil Carson, Ron Nevison, Mark Stein and Jake Holmes which I found interesting. Better luck next time, Denny!
