29 October 2009 2,949 views No Comment


J.J. Jackson Remembers Led Zeppelin: The Music and The Guys Who Made It is a brand-new e-book to be released this week by Enzepplopedia Publishing. It’s comprised of six interviews that Frank Reddon, author of Sonic Boom: The Impact of Led Zeppelin. Volume 1 – Break & Enter, conducted with the late DJ and pioneering VJ who was instrumental to Zeppelin’s early success and a trusted friend of the band members. Five of these interviews have never been published in their entirety anywhere before.

J.J. Jackson attended all four Zeppelin gigs at The Boston Tea Party, January 23-26, 1969. Reddon shared with him live concert recordings of those performances prior to interviewing him. The result? An unprecedented and fascinating eyewitness account of how Led Zeppelin improvised night after night.

Musically astute and well versed in the blues, Jackson also compared their live renditions to what had just come out on their official release, the debut Led Zeppelin LP – an album whose early success was credited to J.J.’s enthusiastic on-air endorsement by Led Zeppelin and manager, Peter Grant.

This e-book is a downloadable PDF, over 80 pages. It includes some photos from J.J. Jackson’s personal collection as well as some anecdotes about his personal association with the band members. It can be printed out for easier reading. For details or to purchase online, please visit: or
