More than 30 years after disbanding in 1980, Led Zeppelin continues to be celebrated for its artistic achievements, broad musical influence, and commercial success. The band's notorious exploits have been chronicled in bestselling books such as Stephen Davis's Hammer of the Gods . Yet none of the individual members of the band has penned a memoir or cooperated to any degree with the press or a biographer. Iconic guitarist and Led Zeppelin founder, Jimmy Page, is both the band's most reticent member and the one who most fascinates its huge fanbase. For the first time and in his own words, he opens up to journalist Brad Tolinski, exploring in-depth his remarkable life and musical journey.

Amazingly brilliant. Now when I listen to Led Zeppelin I will not only enjoy their music but also appreciate their creative talents. Not to be missed for avid music fans.

This book is full of data, but if you're seeking insights into Page the human being, forget it. This is not particularly engaging - it isn't well written, and Page's "co-operatrion" is laughable. Page is a secretive, almost pathologically guarded individual. This book is probably fine for musicians who are only interested in technical details, but if you are a fan of biographies, and you are thinking of choosing this one to learn more about the mind behind Led Zeppelin and scores of session recordings - a man with a truly impressive career - you will probably be as disappointed as I was.
