DannyC Posted February 13, 2012 Share Posted February 13, 2012 Hi there, just joined the forum to ask this question...have there been any biographies written about Zep that the various members HAVEN'T vehemontly objected to? I recently lost all of my music so I've been re-accumulating my Zeppelin collection, and in the process I've noticed that it seems every biography that was ever written was met with "Well I've never read it because it would piss me off, but it's wrong!" When Giants Walked the Earth (Mick Wall): "Wall’s just writing a book designed to cash in on something he didn’t have anything to do with. He wasn’t a creative force in Led Zep. I’m at something of a disadvantage because I haven’t chosen to read that book, but I hear it’s totally distorted from people who do know about Led Zeppelin." - JP Hammer of the Gods (Stephen Davis): "I think I opened [the book] up in the middle somewhere and started to read it, and I just threw it out the window. I was living by a river then, so it actually found its way to the bottom of the sea." - JP "The guy who wrote that book knew nothing about the band. I think he'd hung around us once. He got all his information from a guy who had a heroin problem who happened to be associated with us. The only thing I read was the "After Zeppelin" part, because I was eager to get on with the music and stop living in a dream state." - RP Stairway to Heaven: Led Zeppelin Uncensored (Richard Cole): "There's a book written by our former road manager, Richard Cole that has made me completely ill. I'm so mad about it that I can't even bring myself to read the whole thing. The two bits that I have read are so ridiculously false, that I'm sure if I read the rest I'd be able to sue Cole and the publishers. But it would be so painful to read that it wouldn't be worth it." - JP So my question is this, has there been a book written that the remaining members have conceded to be (mostly) true? Or do you think, even if there was such a book written, the members would deny the accounts given out of embarressment? If this has been discussed before I apologize, but the search function did me dirty in this case... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
