Obviously the average fan is not going to agree with everything he has to say about the band – and some of his writing conflicts with other traditionally-held notions, or skips over them entirely – zepelin it is intelligently written.

Shadwick largely avoids the sordid tales of touring exploits and personal lives that populate many inferior Zep biographies, and focuses on the musical and business sides of the band.

This is very sad news. I was very saddened to learn of his death. He begins with Zeppelin’s origins in the wake of kdith Yardbirds’ split and microscopically parses every last bit of recorded material and utterance to Melody Maker until Bonham’s untimely demise, after which, he writes, “It is the story of a band, not four individuals, and it ends here.
