When giants walked the Earth: a biography of Led Zeppelin / Mick Wall.
Review: (Required): 

This is a unique biography. The author Mick Wall weaves in cool fictional
monologues by his main characters to great effect...the tone is sometimes nostalgic,
although more often quite bitter...while I could not begin to say how accurately the
author portrays the complexities of each member's personality, one does get a sense
of the general temperament of these largely mythologized figures. Moreover, the
narratives provide both an informative history lesson on the life and music of this
phenomenal band, and a quite humanizing account of the music industry in 1960's and
70's.
