On the fiftieth anniversary of the band's founding, the 10th anniversary edition of our classic Led Zeppelin biography, featuring rich and substantial new material Rock writer Mick Wall draws on insider access, as former confidante to both Plant and Page, to craft the definitive biography of the world's most legendary rock band-Led Zeppelin. In When Giants Walked the Earth, Wall audaciously tells the story of the band known not just as one of the biggest-selling bands of all-time, but also as the one that set the mark for on-the-road excess. Detailed and revealing, When Giants Walked the Earth bores into not only the disaster, addiction and death that haunted the band but also into the real relationship between Page and Plant, including how it was influenced by Page's interest in the occult. Comprehensive and yet intimately detailed, When Giants Walked the Earth literally gets into the principals' heads to bring to life both an unforgettable band and an unrepeatable slice of rock history. This edition celebrates 10 years since our original publication and includes approximately 35,000 words of new material about the band and the last decade, featuring fresh interviews and newly unearthed context.
