In ‘Led Zeppelin: The Biography’ this author takes his full measure, for good and sometimes for evil, and separates myth from reality.
From the opening notes of their first album, the band heralded themselves as something else, a collision of great artistic ambition and raw elemental violence, of tender English folk music and hard-hitting African-American blues.
That record sold over 10 million copies and it was just the beginning; Led Zeppelin’s albums have sold over 300 million certified copies worldwide and the dust has never settled. Combined, Led Zeppelin’s discography has spent an almost unbelievable 10+ years on the album charts….
This author takes the music seriously and brings the band’s artistic journey to full and vivid life. However, the music is only part of the legend: Led Zeppelin is also the story of how the 1960s became the 1970s, how playing in clubs became playing in stadiums and flying your own jet, as if out of innocence decadence. Led Zeppelin may not have invented the groupie, and they weren’t the first rock band to tour, but like everything else, they took it to a whole new level. Not all legends are true, but in this careful tally, what is true is astounding and at times unsettling.
