Led Zeppelin FAQ

Led Zeppelin FAQ
You think you're an expert on Led Zeppelin? You think you know it all? Wrong. You be well-advised to pick up Led Zeppelin FAQ: All That's Left To Know About The Greatest Hard Rock Band Of All Time by George Case.

Released in paperback on November 01, 2011 and for Kindle on January 31, 2012 by Backbeat Books, LZ FAQ is the be all and end all fountain of information on Led Zeppelin. You might remember George Case from his epic 2007 book Jimmy Page: Magus, Musician, Man: An Unauthorized Biography. Clearly Mr. Case ate his Wheaties while doing the research on LZ FAQ and it shows. It's the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the Encyclopædia Britannica and the Gutenberg Bible all in one. It's King Kong, Godzilla and that thing from the movie Cloverfield.

It's completely astounding the level of research and organization that was put forth to compile this LZ FAQ. In the Ackknowledgement, Mr. Case said that it took over two years to complete it. I don't doubt this. In addition to a similar set of FAQ on Led Zeppelin that's been floating around on the Internet for years, LZ FAQ takes it beyond the stratosphere by exploring popular topics and themes for discussion and runs with it.

If you can commit this knowledge contained within LZ FAQ to memory, I am sure that you would be an excellent contender at the American game show Jeopardy. You could be a one-person ZepFest. You would make your parents proud.
