LED ZEPPELIN THEN AS IT WAS – AT KNEBWORTH 1979 – REVISED EDITION – PRE ORDER NOW!
THE NEXT TBL BOOK – DUE FOR PUBLICATION LATER THIS YEAR
LED ZEPPELIN THEN AS IT WAS AT KNEBWORTH 1979
COMPILED BY DAVE LEWIS
The first hardback edition is now sold out. However - a second revised limited edition hardback edition is in progress
PLEASE NOTE PUBLICATION OF THE SECOND EDITION IS NOW PLANNED FOR 2013
This is the current TBL book project which I am working on now – with publication for later in the year.
This is a major revamp of the first edition – in effect it will be a new book.
We are totally re designing it, adding photos and images mostly in colour. There’s also an additional 25,000 words of text being adding in. This includes ‘I was there’ accounts from a cousin of Ronnie Wood, the experiences of a member of the stage crew, on stage transcribes, TBL interviews, a Back To Knebworth 2009 chapter, additional statistics etc. I’m well excited about this one – I think it’s going to be a very worthy companion to the Feather In The Wind book
All pre orders are logged and will be fulfilled with the lowest numbers in the limited edition being allocated as pre ordered.
The second edition will feature:
*Revamped cover and new layout design
*Increased colour content and additional text
* All copies will be individually numbered, certified and signed by the author.
This edition is a major revamp on the first run – even if you have the first book this new improved edition is an essential purchase!
You can pre order a copy now - All pre orders will be allocated the lowest numbers as received.
DON’T MISS OUT – THE SECOND EDITION IS A STRICTLY LIMITED RUN
HERE’S WHAT’S IN STORE:
Thirty two years ago over two weekends in August 1979, thousands of fans came to pay homage to Led Zeppelin as they performed what would be their last UK shows at Knebworth.
Dave Lewis chronicles this milestone event in rock history with the full story behind the band’s triumphant return to the stage – the build up to the event, the concerts themselves, the aftermath and the accompanying impact of their final studio album In Through The Out Door.
The book’s centrepiece is a collection of over thirty unique first hand recollections from fans who attended the Knebworth shows.
These vivid, humorous and often moving accounts capture the true spirit of the occasion.
The book includes:
*Foreword by Ross Halfin – who photographed Led Zeppelin at the August 11th 1979 Knebworth show and their 2007 reunion at the 02 Arena.
*Preface overview by Chris Charlesworth former Melody Maker Editor who had close access to the band in the 1970s.
*Build up to the event, the gigs themselves and aftermath summary.
*Over thirty unique first hand accounts from fans who proudly boast ‘’I was there…’’
*Original Knebworth review from the Tight But Loose magazine.
*Transcribes of interviews from the Knebworth era with Robert Plant and John Paul Jones including contents of the lost promo interview album.
*American retrospective view of the Zep Knebworth saga by Larry M Bergmann Jr.
*Detailed Knebworth bootleg discography by Graeme Hutchinson.
*Detailed In Through The Out Door world wide discography by Nick Anderson.
* Memorabilia focus with spotlight on Knebworth collectables from the Brian Knapp collection.
Hardback format 240 x 170mm
It all adds up to an engaging account that tells how Led Zeppelin came out to meet their post punk audience and reclaim their crown as the worlds number one rock attraction. These nostalgic recollections from out in the field capture the final days of a legendary band and the simpler more innocent times of the last great British festival gatherings of the 1970s.
