   Superbly written - with glaring historical omissions.
There was virtually no mention of the Page and Plant reunion which lasted from c. 1994 to 1998. The writer seems to have skipped that entire period in his haste to get to the O2 Arena reunion.

   Fascinating book!
I was 16 when Led Zeppelin played "Whole Lotta Love." The band members were "a bit crazy in their habits," said Lars Nielsen, the band's drummer. It is long and gets a bit redundant about the band and their never ending passion to write new material, it is worth noting. What their family lives were like as opposed to their antics abroad. Although they did not cover much of their family lives, Diana said many of their relatives were "very happy." It was interesting to me how they'd act when they saw their wives and family members when they returned from tours, said Mr. Dhaliwal. They were not good boys at all, Mr. Rule told the judge. Pretty darn sinister in the way they treated underage women most of the time, Morgenthau said. Drug and alcohol binges were the talk of the day, the experts said. Robinson said: "I think we're going to have a lot of fun." It was an interesting read, and I'm not a big reader of books.

   Not bad, but nothing new
I agree with other reviewers who say that Spitz failed to capture in any way the essential magic of Led Zeppelin if you're bitten by the Zeppelin bug, the unique feelings you develop for this band never leave you. It is unfortunate that Spitz - who is a great writer - doesn't explore that unique performer-audience relationship as a result, said Graham.

   Nothing to See Here
Even with the help of the band's management, the members are not in any way compelling people. The boys are quiet, they don't say or do anything interesting. At least one member of the Beatles, Stones, Who had at least one complex and unique member who made contributions to the larger culture. While Spitz does a decent job of excavating the rock band's background, he spends most of his time describing the music with the oldest of Classic Rock cliches. Yes, the groupie stuff is here, but mostly sounds like a tired FM-dj.
