A revised edition of the classic Led Zeppelin biography, featuring rich and substantial new material
Rock writer Mick Wall draws on insider access, as former confidante to both Plant and Page, to craft the definitive biography of the world's most legendary rock band--Led Zeppelin. In When Giants Walked the Earth, Wall audaciously tells the story of the band known not just as one of the biggest-selling bands of all-time, but also as the one that set the mark for on-the-road excess.
"Sensational." --New York Times"Entertaining, thoughtful." --Los Angeles Times "His access and attention to detail make this a definitive work...an essential source for anyone eager to learn about the era when rock stars ruled the world." --Publishers Weekly "Wall does well to shine light on the myths and music magic of Led Zep--rendering what could have been cartoonish real and sincere." --TimeOut Chicago "[T]hat Wall can add so much fresh detail to the Led Zep story is in itself an extraordinary achievement...(and) he manages to humanize these planet-striding giants while doing so..." --Classic Rock Magazine "It deftly strikes the balance between lofty authority and finding a way to get inside the heads of its subjects." --The Guardian (UK) "[T]his is the big one: a fat, juicy biography of the biggest band ever." --Daily Telegraph (UK)
