Présentation de l'éditeur

A unique look at the history, adventures, myths and realities of this most legendary and powerful of bands, it is a labour of love based on hours of first-hand and original interviews. What emerges is a compelling portrait of the four musicians themselves, as well as a fresh insight into the close-knit entourage that protected them, from Peter Grant to Richard Cole to Ahmet Ertegun, giant figures from the long-vanished world of 1970s rock.

Featuring many rare and never before seen photographs, it is also the first book on Led Zeppelin to cover such recent events as their triumphant 2007 O2 Arena gig and Robert Plant's Grammy-winning resurgence of recent years.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Led Zeppelin - When dinosaurs ruled the earth. 26 septembre 2012
Par Red on Black - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
Led Zeppelin bestrode the 70s rock world like a colossus and perhaps it is right that any book about them should have equally epic proportions. This latest "reveal" by Barney Hoskyns sometimes borders on the obsessional yet for Zeppelin aficionados it is a hugely welcome addition to the bands colorful history from a first class rock journalist who has previously taken on such luminaries as The Band and Tom Waits. In another setting he also charts the rise of fall of the cocaine cowboys of Laurel Canyon scene in "Hotel California". His new book "Trampled Under Foot: The Power and Excess of Led Zeppelin" does revisit some of the themes of the latter book since it is the city of Los Angeles which casts a huge shadow over proceedings as the "default" base for Plant, Page, Jones and Bonham during their all conquering American Tours. This witnessed them take residency in the legendary "Riot House" (Continental Hyatt House) on Sunset Strip where they occupied the top floor of the hotel and created a modern day bacchanalia. Their infamous and lurid excesses has formed the basis for previous books not least Stephen Davis "Hammer of the Gods" a tale of a band "drenched in sex, drugs and psychic abuse". In truth Davis relied much on the wild and often-unreliable recollections of tour manager Richard Cole whose later "Stairway to Heaven" repeated much of what had already been published. Clearly while Cole was an untrustworthy witness he was at the heart of the Zeppelin juggernaut particularly with his friendship to the brilliant but often brutish Jon Bonham. Hence the protestations of Jimmy Page and other band members about his "ridiculously false" account may fall into the "me thinks they doth protest to much" category. Whatever the case it evident that the more mature ex Led Zep members have been keen to put considerable distance between their former hellraiser exploits and current status as Grammy winning wizened old bluesmen.

Hoskyns book draws on a much wider evidential base and attempts to get to the heart of the matter by extensive interviews of over 200 people producing what is the definitive oral history of the band. Hoskyns stated purpose was to peel away the myths and legends. As he states most existing books "recycle tales of groupies and mudsharks and chucking TV sets out of windows. For me, this is terribly boring. I wanted to demystify the band". And yet the reality does not allow a complete revision for as he states "at the same time, I uncovered stuff that's even more shocking". These include the fact that the Zeppelin machine constructed by Peter Grant was so big and powerful that it was virtually above the the law" and could "pay our way out of any trouble, any scandal'. In the last analysis however is this a great shock to any Led Zeppelin fan? They came at a time when the a new and aggressive breed of British managers fought tooth and nail for their artists including through physical violence. They were an "albums" band in a pre internet/download area when record sales were stratospheric and money almost unlimited. They conquered the US at the time in terms of tours and album sales which the Beatles could only dream of. But most of all they were the most exciting thing on the planet in terms of rock music, despite the derision of nearly every rock critic at the time including Hoskyns house magazine the NME.

In the last analysis if you love Zeppelin you will adore "Trampled Underfoot". It is brilliantly written (if a tad long) and charts the story of a singularly unique band of brilliant young musicians with the world at their feet, woman on every arm and unassailable repertoire of hard rock and metallic funk. In short if you own "Physical Graffiti" buy it. For the curious Hoskyns does an interesting list of his top Zeppelin songs marked by the absence of the "usual suspects". Here is his top 15 (No Stairway!) -

1. Ramble On' (Led Zeppelin II)
2. The Lemon Song' (Led Zeppelin II)
3. `Friends' (Led Zeppelin III)
4. `The Ocean' (Houses of the Holy)
5. `Bring It On Home' (Led Zeppelin II).
6. `Gallows Pole' (Led Zeppelin III)
7. `Over the Hills and Far Away' (Houses of the Holy)
8. `Communication Breakdown' (Led Zeppelin)
9. `Black Dog' (Led Zeppelin IV)
10. `Kashmir' (Physical Graffiti)
11. `Since I've Been Loving You' (Led Zeppelin III)
12. `In My Time of Dying' (Physical Graffiti)
13. `Immigrant Song' (Led Zeppelin III)
14. `The Girl I Love She Got Long Black Wavy Hair' (BBC Sessions)
15. `Whole Lotta Love' (Led Zeppelin II)

What do you think? (Personally "Since I've been loving you" would top my list)

Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I've read everything I could get my hands on and this book was no exception. What surprised me at first was the way it was written. The book is made up of quotes and exerts from different people all throughout the Zeppelin World, and placed in chronological order. I wasn't a fan at first, but I quickly realized that each quote gave the perspective of that individual without being dramatized by an author. Instead of the book being persuasive and opinionated from one view, it offers several different views of events that occurred in the Zeppelin world.
I personally found this even more interesting. Instead of a "he said, she said", the quotes come from out of the horses mouths. I think it's great the band has had that mystique about them from tier inception and continues to gain new generations of fans. This book was a great read for the fans who want to get a little deeper into their world. Quotes come from groupies, engineers, managers, record label executives, other musicians as well as the band themselves. I found the book fascinating, but at the same time didn't really learn anything new. It re-emphasizes the fact that John Bonham was really respected throughout the music community, but equally feared for his hard-partying ways and how Jimmy Page was the mastermind behind the helm. John Paul Jones was the most underated musician basically building the groove behind Page, while Robert Plant brought that Black Country Middle-Earthness to the band. Led Zeppelin Rules! What a great time for this book to come out a month before the O2 reunion release on Blu-ray!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must read Zep book 18 novembre 2012
Par A. M. Fornaro - Publié sur

Even after reading countless Zep books and every Mojo/Uncut article- this is a must read !
Barney's intro describing his initial meeting with Jimmy Page was worth the price alone.
Written in a journal-style with many quotes from Zep insiders ( many speaking for the first time )
is an easy read. Sprinkled with rare photos too!
5 out of 5 stars !! Excellent

Is how I can best describe it the first time I ever heard Led Zeppelin back in 1969 or 70. I was very fortunate to have seen them perform at the Forum in Los Angeles. They are my favorite rock band and always will be, even 40 years later. I never knew much about the band so that it why I purchased this book.
So we have four nice looking young men, all extremely talented, that form a band under the carefully orchestrated guidance of one Jimmy Page.
What I gathered from the book is that one was an alcoholic with serious underlying mental health issues, another a serial adulterer, one who likes young girls and a mystery man. This information is brought to the reader in quotes from a multitude of sources. It wasn't an easy read because I found it difficult remembering who was who. Fortunately the author had an index of these people and who they were. After reading the book I was exhausted. What a journey!
I had no idea the music business was so seedy. It was a miracle they lasted as long as they did. They made a huge amount of money but they also lost a great deal of money. It seemed that it leaked out of every pore. Once hard-core drugs entered the picture it was only a matter of time before the empire collapsed.
There were moments of absolute hilarity mingled with the stench of absolute depravity. There is nothing like hearing someone dish the dirt about another person. I loved it. I do wish that one of the band members would do a tell-all book. Now that would be really interesting.
My favorite quote was from Michael Des Barres. He said Robert Plant was Marilyn Monroe and Jimmy Page was Hedy Lamar with a Les Paul. That was priceless.
All-in-all I really enjoyed the book. factual or not, it was a wild ride.

This book detailing the life of Led Zeppelin is excellent in that it traces all the main characters involved in the formation of the band.

The story is told through their experiences .
