We knew it was a game changer. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this collection of interviews with Led Zeppelin band members. Highly recommended. -- Russell DaShiell, writer, producer, lead guitarist When Hank first approached me about my Led Zeppelin coverage from 1973 -- back when their gig at Tampa Stadium was crowned the biggest show by a single band in rock history -- I knew this wasn't gonna be just another Zep potboiler. Hank is a tenacious researcher, an obsessive rock fan, and serves a mean lunch. It's all good. --Arthur Levy, rock historian and archivist
