When the book came, and I opened the package and started looking through this book, it took my breath away. It is visually stunning, and the commentary is really entertaining/enlightening. I feel like I have been taken back to my lost youth.
I am buying another copy just to have, and definitely buying my nephew a copy as well. He grew up listening to Led Zeppelin right along with me (I was 11 when he was born in 1968) so we both "grew up" with Led Zeppelin.
This book is for young fans, old fans, new fans, diehards.....I could go on forever. This is a must have for all Led Zeppelin fans (past, present, and future) and THE Led Zeppelin curious.
This diehard Zep fan-addict found this book a great addition to my "top ten LZ books to own. By now I can recite LZ history from breakup up of Yardbirds to end of Zep - then of course the solo years one off reunions. "Whole Lotta LZ" includes great photos , accurate history then interviews from other musicians influenced or who actually were connected with the band/solo member(s).If ya see this book on Amazon grab it - it appears books are fetching TOP dollar "Ten Years Gone".
As prior reviews have stated this is a superb hardback book with over 200 pages of rare photographs and articles that chronicles the history of this great band from how they were formed through the recent reunion concert in London. This book also contains wonderful pictures of many collectable items including concert tickets, posters, back stage passes, promtional releases, magazine covers, etc....if you collect any of these items you will probably see many of them in this book - that is how complete it is! The book follows the history of the band in chronological order from 1968 to the present - simply outstanding. It includes a complete discography listing of all songs published on LP, 45, CD and DVD. If you like this band and have collected items over the years this is simply a must have.
I needed reference for painting a resin sculpt of Page and Plant... I've found this book to be full of great concert images and background info on the band and their antics. It highlights the full 12 years of Zeppelin and each of the albums. Great material for my needs!
