Rolling Stone once labeled them 'the heaviest band of all time' and with more than 300 million albums sold worldwide, Led Zeppelin is certainly the '800 pound gorilla in the room' that can't be ignored. Nor would anyone really want to overlook the musicians who hold the distinction of being the only band to have had all of their albums reach the U.S. Billboard Top 10.

It is also not surprising that Led Zeppelin's appeal hasn't waned over the years. The group's albums still sell well and when they do make an appearance they sell out the venue, as they did three years ago for their reunion concert at London's 02 Arena.

Finally available in paperback and just in time for holiday gift giving, Whole Lotta Led Zeppelin: The Illustrated History of the Heaviest Band of All Time traces the remarkable rise to stardom of this iconic band.

Founded in 1968, the group's meteoric ascent ended in 1980 with the band's break-up. You'll follow the ins and outs of Led Zeppelin's musical history plus the band's reunion in 2007.

Author Jon Bream, with the help of an all-star cast of writers, photographers, and rock 'n roll insiders, presents a captivating portrait of the careers of the band members. The behind-the-scenes glimpse into key concerts provided by a wealth of photos and narrative material is augmented by a colorful display of 200 rare concert posters, backstage passes, T-shirts and other memorabilia.

All of this for a cover price under $20 makes Whole Lotta Led Zeppelin a must purchase for any of the band's many fans. As a Christmas gift, this book will hit a high note with any rock 'n roller!
