Whole Lotta Led Zeppelin, 2nd Edition: The Illustrated History of the Heaviest Band of All Time

Whole Lotta Led Zeppelin, 2nd Edition: The Illustrated History of the Heaviest Band of All Time

This second edition of the history of rock’s heaviest band gives you even more reasons to rock!

This all-star tribute features many of today’s top rock journalists from Rolling Stone, CREEM, Billboard, and more, as well as reflections on the band from some of rock’s greatest performers, including members of the Kinks, Aerosmith, Heart, Mott the Hoople, the Minutemen, the Hold Steady, and many more.

Glorious concert and behind-the-scenes photography cover the band from the first shows in 1968 as the New Yardbirds through today. More than 450 rare concert posters, backstage passes, tickets, LPs and singles, t-shirts, buttons, and more illustrate the book. A discography and tour itinerary complete the package, making a book as epic as the band it documents.

Created from the ashes of the Yardbirds by guitarist and session wizard Jimmy Page, Led Zeppelin featured virtuoso bass player John Paul Jones, gonzo drummer John Bonham, and Robert Plant, a vocalist like no other before him. The band single-handedly defined what rock ‘n’ roll could be, leaving in their wake tales as tall or as real as we wanted them to be.

All of that, plus exclusive commentary from Ray Davies of the Kinks, Steve Earle, Kid Rock, Ace Frehley of Kiss, Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty, Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes, Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora, Lenny Kravitz, Dolly Parton, and many more make this book one that no fan of Led Zeppelin will want to miss!

    This review is from: Whole Lotta Led Zeppelin, 2nd Edition: The Illustrated History of the Heaviest Band of All Time (Paperback)
    Really informative, definitely a “one-stop shop” for Led Zep fans that want a concise history in one book. The new/added chapters in this 2nd edition are especially informative, as they document the Atlantic Records reunion, the tantalizing signals and possibilities of a reunion tour after that show, and the details on re-issues. And the photos throughout the book are amazing, especially the ones of that aforementioned reunion show.

    Loved the original 2008 book, and this fully updated edition includes the band’s album Celebration Day, the will-they-or-won’t-they rumors of a reunion tour or album, and the activities of the surging band members in recent years. This is the best book ever published on Led Zep.
