When guitarist Jimmy Page, singer Robert Plant, bassist and keyboardist John Paul Jones, and drummer John Bonham first got together back in 1968 in London, they couldn’t have known that they band they would form—Led Zeppelin—would become one of the most famous and celebrated rock bands in the history of the world. But that’s exactly what they did. Record-breaking tours and albums that were significant commercial successes marked a career that spread from the late 60s to December 4, 1980, when the band dissolved after Bonham’s death.
In Led Zeppelin, you’ll find the only official illustrated book that chronicles the band’s storied history. Covering 50 years, the 400 page book tells the tale of starting out in a tiny club to selling out venues like London’s O2 Arena, where 20 million fans broke the world record for the highest demand for tickets for a single concert.
Making this book even more unique, it represents a collaboration between Page, Plant, and Jones. The more than 300 photographs not only include journalists and photographers, but photos from the band members’ personal collections and depict the band both on and off stage. The book also includes rare and unseen artwork from the Led Zeppelin archives as well as imagines and documents from Atlantic Records.
With Led Zeppelin, you’ll get the real story as only those who lived it can tell.
