Another Zeppelin Book Lands

A book that chronicles the 1975 Led Zeppelin tour of America goes on sale October 28.  LZ-'75 has been compiled by Stephen Davis, author of Hammer Of the Gods.  It is being touted by his publicist as loaded with inside info on the band and the tour, including interviews the author was able to do with band members after being granted extraordinary access to the band that, according to the press release, even included a reserved seat on The Starship, the group's private tour jet.  If you're like us, you are thinking all the good material from the interviews has already been printed and reprinted several times over.  Not so, according to the PR, which claims that Davis lost the three notebooks he had recorded all of his notes in, only finding them after '...three decades of searching.'  He must have a lot of amazing shit. I lose stuff all the time, but I'm pretty sure that if something as rare as first-hand notes from interviews with a band as notorious for not granting interviews as Led Zeppelin went missing, I'd either find them a lot faster than he did, or tear apart my home looking. It will be interesting to see whether the '...amazing amount of information from the tour' includes any amazing information - or just stuff Davis did not think was worth including in the 1975 magazine article he put together using the interviews.  Of course, over time, some things not worthy of printing in 1975 may have gained in significance. The book also promises 40 never published pics of the group.
