about

In this exhaustive and insightful reference text, rock writer and cultural critic George Case details the key names, dates, figures, and features of one of the biggest and most mythologized rock-and-roll groups of all time: Led Zeppelin. Here, finally, are the answers to the puzzles that have haunted fans for over four decades - puzzles such as the meaning of Led Zep's enigmatic album covers; the truth about leader Jimmy Page's involvement with the occult; a breakdown of the sometimes murky roots of their greatest songs; firm data on their musical instruments, live performances, and studio productions; and sordid specifics of the band's infamously debauched private lives.But here, too, is a deeply reflective analysis of why Led Zeppelin's music has endured as long as it has, and of how Led Zeppelin's mystique has only grown in the years since their official disbanding. Placing the group in the context of their time and place, Case scrupulously compares and contrasts their achievements with those of their influences, rivals, and followers. Led Zeppelin FAQ is not only an indispensable listener's companion to a classic rock act, but a considered history of rock and roll as a business, an art form, and a worldwide social phenomenon.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not worth the money this is nothing new, very disappointing. the only good thing is he has collected bits and pieces from others (all those that have written a book with any mention of Led Zeppelin) and rehashed the rumours and put it all in one book. not worth reading if you have read everything else, or have access to the internet because it seems that's where mr. case gets most of his info.  save your money and buy a different book. there are no new stories about Zeppelin and no books with interviews from the band that are current.
