In a series of more than 50 interviews that span seven decades, many never before seen in print, this is the story of Led Zeppelin told by the people who knew it best - the members of the band. This book shoots down the folklore and assumptions about Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham, and presents the band's full history, from when Jimmy Page was playing skiffle to the day the band was honoured by the Kennedy Center for their contribution to American and global culture. Led Zeppelin on Led Zeppelin captures the ideas of all of the band's members at the time they created classics like Whole Lot of Love, Stairway to Heaven, and Kashmir, but also captures the idea of the band itself as it created the music that changed popular culture.

Reviews for Led Zeppelin on Led Zeppelin: Interviews & Encounters

Bordowitz brings CCR's complex story to life. . . . [He] never takes sides or passes judgment yet brilliantly illuminates the tragedy of CCR's lost potential. -- Library Journal on Bad Moon Rising If Bad Moon Rising isn't 'the saddest story in rock 'n' roll, ' . . . it certainly comes within kissing distance. --USA Today on Bad Moon Rising Bordowitz provides evenhanded treatment of highly charged issues . . . persuasively demonstrating that CCR has earned their reputation as one of the most important bands in rock history. -- Publishers Weekly on Bad Moon Rising A very thorough book. -- Mojo on Bad Moon Rising A great read for casual readers and longtime fans. -- Library Journal on Every Little Thing Gonna Be All Right An intriguing collection . . . absolutely fascinating. . . . Every entry tells the reader something of interest. -- Goldmine on Every Little Thing Gonna Be All Right Offers a rich variety of angles on the Marley legend. -- Relix on Every Little Thing Gonna Be All Right Often illuminating . . . never dull or boring. -- Nashville City Paper on Every Little Thing Gonna Be All Right I still remember listening to Led Zeppelin's debut album for the first time, the same year we recorded Spirit In The Sky. 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
