Описание: This all-star tribute features many of today's top rock journalists from Rolling Stone, CREEM, Billboard, and more, as well as reflections on the band from some of rock's greatest performers, including members of the Kinks, Aerosmith, Heart, Mott the Hoople, the Minutemen, the Hold Steady, and many more.
Glorious concert and behind-the-scenes photography cover the band from the first shows in 1968 as the New Yardbirds through today. More than 450 rare concert posters, backstage passes, tickets, LPs and singles, t-shirts, buttons, and more illustrate the book. A discography and tour itinerary complete the package, making a book as epic as the band it documents.
Created from the ashes of the Yardbirds by guitarist and session wizard Jimmy Page, Led Zeppelin featured virtuoso bass player John Paul Jones, gonzo drummer John Bonham, and Robert Plant, a vocalist like no other before him. The band single-handedly defined what rock 'n' roll could be, leaving in their wake tales as tall or as real as we wanted them to be.
All of that, plus exclusive commentary from Ray Davies of the Kinks, Steve Earle, Kid Rock, Ace Frehley of Kiss, Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty, Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes, Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora, Lenny Kravitz, Dolly Parton, and many more make this book one that no fan of Led Zeppelin will want to miss!
Of the legendary names in the history of the Ford Mustang, one stands apart: BOSS. Originally created to homologate the new Boss 302 engine and option package for SCCA Trans-Am racing, the Mustang Boss 302 debuted for the 1969 model year and was built in limited numbers for the street through 1970. Designed by the legendary Larry Shinoda, the Boss cars were easily distinguished from their less potent stablemates by their race-bred powerplant, standard front spoiler, and bold graphics. For the 2012 model year, Ford has at long last revived the most revered of all Mustang models: BOSS. With a new racing counterpart and a modern street version that delivers more than 440 horsepower, the Boss is truly back To mark this historic occasion, Mustang historian Donald Farr has written a complete history of the Boss 302, from its late 1960s origins in Ford's boardrooms, through its Trans-Am successes and untimely demise in 1970 up to the conception and development of the spectacular new 2012 Mustang Boss 302. Packed with brilliant photography and first-hand accounts from the people who created the original Boss as well as the team that resurrected Ford's most iconic Mustang, this is the story every Mustang enthusiast has been waiting to read
