Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin: Good Times, Bad Times, A Visual Biography of the Ultimate Band captures the public and private lives of the legendary band through rare and iconic photographs, accompanied by insightful commentary. The book arrives in the 40th anniversary year of the group's first two albums, Led Zeppelin I and Led Zeppelin II, as well as their first four U.S. tours.

Led Zeppelin embodied the fabled rock star lifestyle of sex, drugs, and rock & roll, but much more than that, they came to define the music and culture of the 1970s. Now, four decades later, Led Zeppelin — Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham (1948-1980) — continue to draw the fascination, admiration and awe of legions of fans, young and old.

A general overview of the band's history leads readers into the core of the book, a collection of 200 striking photographs, more than half of which are rarely or never before published. These images offer views of the band onstage, backstage, recording in the studio, on tour and at home. From their very first performance in Denmark on September 7, 1968 (as the New Yardbirds) to their last performance in London on December 10, 2007, this volume captures Led Zeppelin in all their electric glory.
