Led Zeppelin: Shadows Taller Than Our Souls - The Albums, Concerts, Memorabilia and Biography of the Gods of Rock
Led Zeppelin retain one of the biggest followings of any band on the planet, even though it is decades since they were still together, touring and recording. Their one-off reunion at the O2 a couple of years ago was the hot gig ticket of the decade, and confirmed by those lucky enough to be there as the greatest gig they'd ever seen. The simultaneous Mothership CD reissue of their greatest hits reinforced the massive explosion of interest in them. This illustrated biography of the band - by top Hendrix and Kurt Cobain biographer Charles Cross - is a visually stunning record of the band's tumultuous career: epic live photos, counterpointed by an informed, lively and trenchant text - and complemented by a rich range of facsimile memorabilia: set lists, concert posters, backstage passes. In the archaeology of rock music Led Zeppelin's American tours of the early seventies, and their final giant Knebworth gig in 1975, have entered legend for their grandiosity, excess and sheer elemental force. They are fully commemorated in this volume, which every Led Zep aficionado will need to have.
