Tight But Loose: The Led Zeppelin Magazine

Led Zep didn't do fan clubs...

... and outside of the music weeklies there was little way of obtaining information. As a fan craving to know more, Dave Lewis undertook the task of creating a platform of communication between Zeppelin fans across the world. Initially inspired (with some irony) by the do-it yourself principles of the punk magazine Sniffin' Glue, Dave put pen to paper (literally) and rattled out the first issue, placed an advert in Sounds and the magazine was up and running.

Over the past 30 odd years TBL has been an incredible roller coaster ride. While the early issues benefited greatly from direct input from Swan Song, the demise of the band made it difficult to carry on and there was a ten year hiatus. As the solo albums unfolded, Dave's enthusiasm for their work remained intact, leading to the books The Final Acclaim, A Celebration and Celebration II : The Tight But Loose Files, and it was the favourable reaction to A Celebration that inspired Dave to revive the magazine again in 1992.

Since then TBL has gone from strength to strength with each issue evolving as a mini book scrutinising a variety of Zep topics. For more instant news there is this website TBLweb.com which has extended the original premise of sharing information beyond all expectations.
