Celebration Day: The Led Zeppelin Encyclopedia

Everyone knows that Peter Grant was Led Zeppelin's manager, that he was often called the fifth member of the band and that Olympic Studios was the location that tracks from Led Zeppelin, , Houses Of The Holy and Physical Graffiti were recorded at. Do you know the connection between Led Zeppelin and Glynis Johns is? How about Rushcock Parish Church? What is the significance of the University of Surrey for Led Zeppelin and who is George Hardie?

Answers to these questions and many more can be found in Celebration Day: The "Led Zeppelin" Encyclopedia >, an unofficial publication written by rock journalists Malcolm Dome and Jerry Ewing, available in bookstores on June 23, 2010. While other types of books on Led Zeppelin have saturated the market, this is the first real encyclopedia-style book spanning the entire time of Led Zeppelin and the members solo careers.

Reading through this book, I was constantly amazed at the information contained within, becoming as wide-eyed as I was when I dropped Led Zeppelin II onto the turntable at my buddy's house for the first time in high school.

This book holds a very important permanent place in my library, one that cannot be replaced. It is both an excellent read and an excellent all-around reference manual for the band Led Zeppelin and everything related.
