Dazed and Confused : the Stories Behind Every SongBook - 2005
Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham make up Led Zeppelin, one of the greatest hard rock bands ever. This heavily illustrated book gives readers an in-depth examination of everything that inspired the songs of Led Zeppelin. What was the House of the Holy"? Where was the "Stairway to Heaven"? Which strange encounters led to such classics as "Kashmir" and "Trampled Underfoot"? Was it an earthquake that inspired "Going to California" on their untitled fourth album? Dazedand Confused reveals the roots and origins of the songs on all eight of the band's celebrated studio albums, together with all the stories behind material released after Zeppelin's break-up in 1980, including Unledded: No Quarter and the BBC Sessions album. You are invited to explore the inspiration behind the sound of four brilliant musicians who defined the concept of hard rock, and yet imbued their work with passionate magic and mystery. That mystery is heavily explained in Dazed and Confused."
