A new Led Zeppelin book is due next week.
"Trampled Under Foot: The Power And Excess Of Led Zeppelin," written by British music critic Barney Hoskyns, will be published September 6.
Hoskyns meticulously tracked down everyone involved with the band during its early years, at the height of its power, and during its dramatic decline.
The book is billed as the inside story of what went on behind the music, lifting the lid on the parties, the fights, and the unmitigated, unapologetic bad behavior of rock gods at the pinnacle of world stardom.
"Led Zeppelin was unobtainable and unattainable and we very seldom talked about it,” Robert Plant told Hoskyns in May 2003. “Basically, the myth propagated itself."
“Trampled Under Foot” will present a unique look at the history, adventures, myths and realities of this most legendary and powerful of bands, 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.
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, it will also feature many rare and never-before-seen photographs,
