    I give 2 1 2 stars This review is for the Kindle first edition I don t know if any changes were made, but I wouldn t think they would be very substantial.At 49%, I finally gave up This is not the type of book I was expecting it s a glorified scrapbook than anything else It s a collage of quotes and full length articles from previously published sources, all duly acknowledged I m positive that a lot of Zeppelin fans out there might have done something similar at home, or even better It s informative in a very superficial way in what I ve read so far, I learned that John Paul Jones seemed like a very nice man the band members got along well which is unusual , and that Jimmy Page liked very young girls ugh Oh and everything about Page s guitars in yet another article which didn t interest me in the least Apart a few pages, Jon Bream whom I shall not refer to as the author, since he authored very little also includes some of his own articles, again previously published It makes for disjointed and uneven writing With all the quotes taken from Hammer of the Gods by Stephen Davis, I should have picked up that book instead.WHOLE LOTTA LED ZEPPELIN is slightly interesting when it comes to the music and the recording process Even though some books about bands and rock stars are poorly written, I had never come across one that was so uninteresting It was a chore to read I kept picking up other books, not wanting to continue with this one I m not quite sure how such an influential band could be written into such a dull book, but there you have it I started the book in early January, read several other books in between, didn t touch it in March, and I figured I was done with it At least, for now maybe I ll try to finish it eventually Hopefully, the second half is better, but somehow I doubt it.

    This book contains quite a few errors wrong years for tours songs albums, typos, etc and a surprising amount of material excerpted directly from discredited by most serious Zeppelin fans, anyway works by Stephen Davis and Richard Cole, and then includes a section about how Page and Plant have dismissed those accounts.On the other hand, there are some interesting short quotes and a couple longer pieces with various musicians relating their feelings about Led Zeppelin, from Joe Perry of Aerosmith to Chester Bennington of the loathsome to me anyway Linkin Park and Tad Kubler of The Hold Steady There is also a great essay from Charles Shaar Murray that I had not previously read many of the other magazine excerpts were not new to me It s an Illustrated History so I suppose the main point of the book is the photos, which are nice, although most are fairly common if you have a few other Zep tomes.

    I would give this a higher rating if all the text of the book hadn t been copied from every other biography article published elsewhere Nothing in this book was original to it, even most of the photos were reprints from elsewhere However, these were the best quality images tons of them If a Zeppelin fan wanted to buy just one book that collated everything together, I d recommend this one to replace all the others But if a fan already owns the rest, this won t add anything new That lack of originality is the main reason for the lower rating.

    Great Photos I learned than I thought I ever knew about Zeppelin It s fascinating to hear about their lives, and what they were going through during the 70 s and 80 s Life was just different then, the world was different Of course, I was fascinated by Robert Plant, he was Rock n Roll But, learning about Jimmy Page, that was interesting, to say the least Led Zeppelin definitely surpassed anyone of their time, and continue to be an influence on the business.

    3 1 2 starsWas hoping for history of the band, rather than testimonials from other musicians It is also quite disingenuous to not mention all of Zeppelin s plagiarism Their ripping off Whole Lotta Love is mentioned, but most of the lifted songs aren t mentioned until the Discography in the back of the book and even then, the Dazed and Confused steal isn t talked about at all You can read all about that here

    Led Zeppelin and I go way back so what can I say about this book I really enjoyed the pictures, can t have enough pictures, and read some of the summaries about the members of the group and the albums they produced and concert tours.

  7. says:

    Definitely just for fans of the band I enjoyed reading the reviews of their albums, and about the band s tour exploits It made This is Spinal Tap seem all the brilliant in retrospect.

    This book is truly great For anyone interested in a band that really made its own rules while creating some timeless and never equaled rock music, this large book will satisfy you on many levels.This is a comprehensive, lavishly illustrated history with all the bases covered tour diaries and dates, memorabilia shots, complete reviews of their recordings by various writers, interviews, timelines, recollections and fascinating stories The band members certainly have their say through various excerpted interviews as well.The picture of Jimmy Page ordering at a Howard Johnson s restaurant circa 68 is priceless alone, but this book also filled in many gaps in my Zep knowledge, including manager Peter Grant s involvement in many incidents, the source of their early bluesy material, and how their music continued to evolve up through 1980 It also includes a close look at their film The Song Remains the Same and covers their 2007 London reunion performance with Jason Bonham on drums as well as an extensive discography.I can remember when an older brother put headphones on me around 1973 and boggled my mind with the solo from Heartbreaker when I was about 10 years old While we can t go back in time this book will take you through the years with many excellent guest writers and critics, sound engineers and fellow musicians who share personal recollections Like the band and their career, an enthralling tour de force
