Hardcover and DVD >
Relive the amazing story of Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham—the four original gods of heavy metal—in this ultimate tribute to the greatest rock band of all time: Led Zeppelin.
Written by an award-winning authority on the band, Led Zeppelin documents the incredible journey of four talented rockers as they achieve musical glory. It takes you deep into the world of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll in the heady days of the 1970s, revealing the personal stories behind the recordings. Iconic rock photography and spectacular images of rare memorabilia capture the excitement of the era, including posters, art prints, tickets to the biggest concerts, invites to after-parties, superbly designed flyers, and even “The Object” from the cover of Presence. Led Zeppelin is an exhilarating celebration of a group whose unique sound has never been equaled and will never be bettered.

Chris Welch was a journalist at Melody Maker who was there to witness it all first-hand throughout the ‘70s and has interviewed all the members of Led Zeppelin many times. He is the author of several Led Zeppelin books including Led Zeppelin: The Ultimate Collection (Carlton), Led Zeppelin Treasures (Carlton), John Bonham: A Thunder of Drums (Backbeat Books), and Peter Grant: The Man Who Led Zeppelin (Omnibus Press).
