Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Led Zeppelin, who bestrode the world of rock like a colossus, have continually grown in popularity and influence since their official winding up in 1980. They exasperated critics and eluded classification, synthesizing blues, rock, folk, rockabilly, funk, classical, country, Indian, and Arabic techniques. They performed the alchemical trick of transmuting base led into gold—and platinum—and diamond. They did what they would, finding wisdom through personal excess and artistic self-discipline.

“Not a coda to Zeppelins legacy, but a blast of metaphysical graffiti as relevant today as the first time we heard the opening chords of ‘Stairway to Heaven. From Kant to ‘Kashmir, from Freud to ‘Fool in the Rain, Calef and company explore Zeppelins music in an introspective, suggestive manner worthy of both a blistering Page solo and a bawdy Bonham stomp.”

—BRANDON W. FORBES, co-editor of Radiohead and Philosophy

“Led Zeppelins albums, personalities, live performances, art work, myths, influences, and more, all come under the microscope. Compelling insights and observations add more depth to a subject that continues to thrill and inspire. Each chapter is driven by an unquenchable thirst for Zeppelin knowledge and pulls the reader deeper into the world of Led Zeppelin . . .”

—DAVE LEWIS, editor, Tight But Loose

Book News Annotation:

American scholars of philosophy, English literature, and other fields, explore philosophical dimensions of the primordial heavy metal band. Among their topics are when all are one and one is all, with flames from the dragon of darkness, celebrating the agony of life, and a bootleg in your hedgerow.
