Led Zeppelin: The Oral History of The World’s Greatest Rock Band.

Publicado el 31/08/2012 | por Perem | Led Zeppelin

Tampoco es exactamente el movimiento que muchos de los seguidores del grupo esperan, pero cualquier cosa que haga referencia al “the World’s Greatest Ronk Band” siempre es cuestión de prestarle atención.

Y sí, estamos hablando de un nuevo libro que pretende hacernos entrar dentro del Universo Zeppelin, y si bien, seguro que esas 576 páginas y esas más de 200 entrevistas realizadas a los miembros del grupo y a los diversos personajes que en aquella época rodeaban al grupo, darán mucho juego, se hace difícil que nada nuevo pueda aportar después de que Stephen Davis nos obsequiase con el imprescinidible. Hammer of the Gods.

Este Led Zeppelin: The Oral History of The World’s Greatest Ronk Band, firmado por Barney Hoskyns, saldrá a la venta el próximo día 6 de Noviembre.

Por cierto, sin duda, el título es de lo más acertado.

Detalles del libro, tal como se describen en Amazon:

The definitive oral history of the iconic, bestselling rock band Led Zeppelin

With Robert Plant on lead vocal and Jimmy Page on guitar, Led Zeppelin is one of the most iconic, legendary, and influential rock bands in musical history. Tales of their indulgence in sex, drugs, and excess have swirled for decades. In this definitive oral history of the band, Barney Hoskyns finally reveals the truth about Led Zeppelin, paring away the myths and describing what life was really like for four young men on top of the world, enjoying fame on a scale that not even the Beatles experienced as a touring live act. Through fresh new interviews with the surviving band members, close friends, their tour manager, and scores of other fascinating characters, Hoskyns provides deep insights into the personalities of the band members and chronicles the group’s dramatic rise, fall, and legacy.

Based on more than 200 interviews with everyone from Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones to road manager Richard Cole, their late manager Peter Grant, and many others central to the Zeppelin story

Features striking photos of the band both on and offstage, many published here for the first time

Takes a fresh look at Led Zeppelin’s music, cultural significance, and legend, as well as the highs and lows of the sex, drugs, and rock and roll lifestyle on the road

Analyzes the way the band wrote, arranged, and recorded, from how they created the stupendous sound and dynamics on “Dazed and Confused” and “Whole Lotta Love” to the group’s folk-suffused acoustic side embodied in songs like “Friends” and “That’s the Way”

Written by Barney Hoskyns, contributing editor at British Vogue who is the author of the bestselling book Hotel California and the co-founder of online music-journalism library Rock’s Backpages
