Treasures of Led Zeppelin relives the greatest story of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll ever told—complete with 21 pieces of facsimile memorabilia!
Sell-out tours in packed stadiums, records going platinum on pre-orders alone, three-hour long concerts night after night, women, booze, drugs . . . Led Zeppelin did it all. Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and John “Bonzo” Bonham created a sound that has never been equaled and will never be bettered in the annals of hard rock. Though it ended with the death of their drummer, along the way the band made magic as they mixed blues and rock with Celtic, African, and Asian influences. Written by a man who witnessed many of their most legendary performances, Treasures of Led Zeppelin recounts Led Zep’s history as they played their way to musical glory. This unofficial publication features images from the cream of contemporary photographers, and captures an era when the group conquered the world with their heavy riffs and pioneering songs. And 21 pieces of facsimile memorabilia take you there, putting ticket stubs, programs, beautiful posters, superbly designed contemporary flyers, and more in your hands.

As a reporter on UK music weekly Melody Maker, Chris Welch went on the road with Led Zeppelin during the early 1970s. Chris has since worked on a variety of music magazines and written more than 20 books on rock music. He also contributes to UK newspapers. His finest hour was “Playing conga drums, live on stage in Germany with Led Zep during ‘Whole Lotta Love.’”
