Led Zeppelin - charismatic front man Robert Plant and Guitar innovator Jimmy Page, backed by the superhuman rhythm section of John Bonham and John Paul Jones - produced some of the most timeless and distinctive music in rock 'n' roll history. From their first rehearsal in 1968 through their last concert in 1980, the band chased their muses fervently, rigorously touring and producing a hooky, hard-rocking catalog along the way. Unprecedented inventiveness and fierce ambition guaranteed high album sales and sold out concerts, but their massive popularity came at a cost when drugs and alcohol abuse in the last few years of the band's existence started to stifle the creative force and the untimely death of drummer John Bonham signaled the end of the band.
In Led Zeppelin, Day By Day, Marc Roberty chronicles this legendary group's illustrious career. The book covers all the concerts the band has performed and includes setlists (where known) along with reviews of many significant shows. The music is covered at great length: recording sessions for each album and session projects undertaken by individual members are listed in chronological order, alongside studio location details, release dates, performance credits , and oral history from studio insiders. The book also corrects previously undetected mistakes in Zeppelin history and provides new information. Filled with rare images and rich detail, this volume is a must-have for readers across the spectrum, from curious casual fans to longtime devotees.
