In the summer of 1980, Led Zeppelin undertook what would be their final tour –a low key 14 date trek taking in Germany, Belgium, Holland, Austria and Switzerland. With a radically streamlined stage presentation and set list, the aim was to get back to being a working band after all the lay offs of recent years and grand scale of their 1979 Knebworth appearances.

This air of rejuvenation would inspire plans for a full scale tour of America in the autumn that would be sadly curtailed with the untimely death of John Bonham. Vastly under reported at the time, the Led Zeppelin Over Europe 1980 tour has taken on something of mythical status over the years. It found the band anxious to stamp their authority on a changing musical landscape as their reputation tethered like a feather in the wind.

Dave Lewis brings a fresh perspective in chronicling this final Led Zeppelin tour ,setting the scene with the build up to the tour, combining on the spot reports of the gigs from the time and retrospective views from those that were there both out front and backstage. The book includes an in depth gig by gig analysis of the 14 shows full bootleg, memorabilia and statistic appendix section and is illustrated throughout with many rarely seen photos and images.

The book also offers a unique up close and personal fans eye view of the era as re-told through Dave Lewis’ diaries of the time and his experiences of being in close proximity to the action during the tour. It all adds up to an illuminating volume that offers clear light on the final days of Led Zeppelin as they attempted to rejuvenate their career by doing what they did best – performing live on stage.

This is the Led Zeppelin tour that time forgot…until now – remembered and re-assessed in greater detail than any other single rock tour.

* Full colour design throughout with over 250 rarely seen photos and memorabilia images.

* Limited hardback first edition –each book individually numbered, certified and signed by the author.

Here’s some feedback from satisfied readers: 

 ‘’Dave Lewis is an incredible archivist and chronicler, and is an asset to rock journalism. He is a fan above all else, but a shrewd and passionate one at that. Feather In The Wind is a hefty tome and a worthy addition to any rock library.’’ Neil Daniels Fireworks rock magazine 

‘’A brilliant dissection of the tour that time forgot. What emerges is an intriguing chronicle of the biggest band in the world contemplating their own vastness and legacy. But this is no obituary; instead Dave Lewis has skilfully woven a passionate celebration of a group who may well have been on the verge of an altogether different kind of greatness.’’ Terry Staunton Record Collector 

‘’This book is incredible . Not only is it a road journal of the final Led Zeppelin tour in 1980 but it’s also a sentimental thesis of the beginning of an era that was never realized. It took five hours of my life last evening alone! I can’t wait to dive back into June of 1980 again tonight! Thanks again for doing what you do.’’ Daniel Neal/ France 

Important Note: Signing of books: I will dedicate and sign each book to the name of the book purchaser as listed -unless informed otherwise (Dave Lewis).
