They never released any singles; most of their albums have no lettering or titles of any description; they spent their early years touring in America -- but all that aside, Led Zeppelin remain probably the greatest, biggest- selling heavy rock band of all time. Their early sound was heavily blues-influenced, but every schoolboy (and many a schoolgirl) can immediately identify 'Stairway to Heaven' from Led Zeppelin IV, the record that cemented Led Zep's place in rock's hall of fame. Equally famed for their legendary rock'n'roll excess, their seventies tales of debauchery on the road were well documented in the 1986 book Hammer of the Gods. There has been little published of any authority on the band since, and nineteen years on Hammer of the Gods feels dated. Enter Mick Wall, who's had the ear of Jimmy Page and Robert Plant on and off for the last two decades, and recently wrote a Mojo cover story on the 25th anniversary of John Bonham's death. He's interviewed the band and their inner circle countless times and has a wealth of previously unpublished material. The time is now right to weave all this into a definitive volume: the final word -- an epic 150,000 word doorstop -- on Led Zeppelin.
