Annotation:
This biography of pioneering heavy metal band Led Zeppelin offers fans a glimpse of what really went on backstage during the decade of over indulgence. The 1970s spring back to life as Plant and crew relive their moments of gluttonous sex and drugs escapades.A book that as time goes by increasingly appears to be more of a cultural and historical document than the racy tell-all it started out as, HAMMER OF THE GODS is a blow-by-blow account of the Led Zeppelin story, from its start as Jimmy Page's vision of the New Yardbirds to its messy dissolution in a fog of drugs, violence, and death. Stephen Davis does an excellent job of keeping the narrative moving through an increasingly sleazy succession of anecdotes involving the band and its young female admirers, but he's at his best when charting the convergence of sex and rock & roll that was Led Zeppelin at its peak. Davis's depiction of the band members' beleaguered status as pariahs among the rock cognoscenti, even at the height of their creative powers, will be instructive to those who assume Zeppelin always had the legendary standing it maintains today; his portrayals of the chaos and frequent outbreaks of violence (often at the instigation of the band's thuggish manager Peter Grant and his henchman, tour manager Richard Cole) that attended a Zeppelin show vividly capture the mayhem and the madness at the core of this influential rock phenomenon.
