There’s a sort of mystique about Led Zeppelin that even other insanely huge bands do not have. (Pink Floyd had it and Aerosmith kind of had it until Steven Tyler signed up for American Idol.) A band could practice and practice, blowout speakers and shred guitar strings and never capture what Led Zeppelin captured. Reading When Giants Walked the Earth is like sneaking into the band’s dressing room after a show in the 70’s and seeing it all for yourself. The detail Mick Wall provides through countless interviews gives an insight into the band you won’t find elsewhere and a look back to a time when rock stars really were untouchable icons. It will be like you were a groupie!
