Led Zeppelin: Good Times, Bad Times: A Visual Biography of the Ultimate Band

Led Zeppelin: Good Times, Bad Times: A Visual Biography of the Ultimate Band It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. If that is true, then this book is worth at least 200 thousand words. Led Zeppelin: Good Times, Bad Times: A Visual Biography of the Ultimate Band by Jerry Prochnicky and Ralph Hulett is an amazing and eye-opening look at Led Zeppelin from their first performance in Denmark on September 7, 1968 through their reunion concert at the O2 Arena in London, England on December 10, 2007.

Over 60 photographers have contributed their photos and stories to give a full look and perspective into an amazing history. From photos at the Rose Palace in Pasadena, California and the Boston Tea Party in Boston, Massachusetts in May 1969 and February 1972 photos of Jimmy Page bending the D string during Heartbreaker at the Sydney Showground to Robert Plant in the San Diego Sports Arena on June 19, 1977 with clenched fist and the band performing their last song at the last concert before John Bonham died, you truly get everything in-between.

In addition to photos of live performances, you also get candid and private photos of the band members at home with their families, like John Paul Jones playing mandolin outside on the steps of his country estate in Hertfordshire, England for his wife Maureen and two of his daughters, Tamara and Jacinda, in August 1970 and Robert Plant, curled up in a wicker chair with his daughter Carmen.

Also captured are early shots of the band in the studio, working on tracks for upcoming albums as well as backstage shots before and after live concerts.

This hard covered, 216-page book is a perfect visual companion to Prochincky and Hulett's 2005 book Whole Lotta Led: Our Flight With Led Zeppelin. Whether this book ends up on your coffee table or in your bookcase library of Led Zeppelin-related books, it should be a required addition.
