    Rock Royalty This book is geared towards music historians rather than the casual reader. I was alive and kicking during "Z" reign and don't recognize many of the bands and musicians mentioned.

    Through the 550+ pages this book has, I definitely got a very clear picture of Led Zeppelin- through Mick Walls eyes, who I guess were more focused on Jimmy Page. Aside from that, for someone that does not live and breathe music, especially in the 1970s scene, the amount of detail can definitely be tiresome. Add to that the guesstimates of band members POV excerpts, which really pissed me off by the end. However, I still had to finish it, and you will too if you get hooked in better understanding Through the 550+ pages this book has, I definitely got a very clear picture of Led Zeppelin- through Mick Walls eyes, who I guess were more focused on Jimmy Page.

    I enjoyed this book enough to rate as 5-star but it was disappointing to frequently experience significant editing errors in a tenth-anniversary edition. However, I can overlook that in what I thought was a fascinating and well-paced story about one of my favorite bands. I enjoyed listening to the music as I progressed through the book.
