Earlier this week, a Led Zeppelin book by British music writer Barney Hoskyns was announced for release next week.
"Trampled Under Foot: The Power And Excess Of Led Zeppelin," by Hoskyns, will be published September 6 – read more about it here.
Now, a second Zeppelin effort by Hoskyns has been announced for November.
"Led Zeppelin: The Oral History Of The World's Greatest Rock Band" is set to be published November 6.
The 576-page hardcover is 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.
With Plant on lead vocals and Page on guitar, Led Zeppelin is considered 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, Hoskyns 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.
* Features striking photos of the band both on and offstage, many published here for the first time
* Takes a fresh look at 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 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"
