Led Zeppelin rose to become one of the biggest-selling rock bands of all time. Mick Wall, respected rock writer and former confidant of band members Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, unflinchingly tells the story of the band that wrote the rulebook for on-the-road excess and eventually paid the price for it, with disaster, drug addiction, and death.

Wall also recounts, in a series of flashbacks, the life stories of the five individuals that made the dream a reality: Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, John Bonham, and their infamous manager, Peter Grant.

Finally, the full, shocking story is told from the inside. Download and start listening now!

    " I was not a fan of the narrative gimmick employed. "

    " Some good facts about what these guys were doing before getting together to become Led Zeppelin.Didn't really tell me any facts that I did not know.Not as gossipy as "Hammer of the Gods" which is another Led Zeppelin biography.Probably only for hardcore fans. "

    " I'm not too far in this, but already this is a pretty insightful book into the group. The whole thing is pretty informal, which is almost a detriment-- but it gets at what rules and what is lame about Zep, all at once. It's nice to read something that gets both sides-- esp. w/r/t the band's habit of not acknowledging the source of its songs. "

    " A must if you're a Led Zeppelin fan, but I doubt any non-fan would get to the end. They are just not nice people! Lots of detail. "
