No one knew Led Zeppelin like Richard Cole. The band's tour manager for more than a decade, Cole was there when they burst onto the music scene, achieved cult status, cut platinum records, and transformed popular music. Second only to the Beatles in sales for years, Led Zeppelin was rock's premier group. But unlike the boys from Liverpool, the excitement of this band"s music was matched by the fever pitch of their antics on and off the stage....
In hotel rooms and stadiums, in a customized private Boeing 707 jet and country estates, Richard Cole saw it all -- and here he tells it all in this close-up, down-and-dirty, no-holds-barred account that records the highs, the lows, and the occasional in-betweens. This revised edition brings fans up to date on the band members' lives and careers, which may be a little quieter now, but their songs remain the same.
Solid read and great look into Zeppelin during their touring days
Very entertaining and a great look into touring with the band and their personal life. You'll like this book if you can answer yes to either of these statements: 1) you liked the behind the scenes feel of "Almost Famous" or 2) you read the sample and liked it... if you answered yes to either question you will thoroughly enjoy this book. Robert Cole (the author) has one helluvah story to tell!
Stairway to Heaven
While not as lurid as "Hammer of the Gods," I am still waiting for a more objective analysis of the Led Zeppelin. The barroom chat narrative works well though.
