You are Jimmy Page. It is the summer of 1968 and you are one of the best-known guitarists in London--and one of its least famous. (from the first line)
From the Publisher:
Draws on interviews with surviving members to reveal previously undisclosed details about the creative drive and antics that marked the iconic band, discussing such topics as the occult interests that shaped their music and their struggles with addiction. Simultaneous.
Annotation:
In this well-researched biography of the English band Led Zeppelin, Mike Wall relies on a plentitude of interviews to give a balanced look at the legendary antics and status of these giants of 1970s rock. Particularly in the United States, where the band earned insane amounts of money on tour, the members of Led Zeppelin--guitarist Jimmy Page, drummer John "Bonzo" Bonham, and vocalist Robert Plant--could get away with nearly anything. (Apparently bassist John Paul Jones eventually stayed in different hotels to escape the madness.) Physical assaults on random bystanders, unabashed misogynistic behavior, and rampant drug use were normal--and with a manager like Peter Grant, who previously worked as a heavy for a notorious slumlord, nobody much complained about the band's excesses. Wall even takes on the rumors of Page's Aleister Crowley-inspired Satanism with remarkable intelligence. This book has plenty of salacious and shocking hotel-room stories, but it also takes a serious look at the impact of one of the most important rock bands of all time.

Praise

"Anybody interested in learning more about the turbulent circumstances of its making should definitely consult Wall's book. Unlike most heavy-metal specialists, he writes clearly and with authority." - Robert Sandall
