    Led Zeppelin : Celebration day

    Led Zeppelin require no introduction – amazing records, blueprint setting concert tours and the ultimate in hotel worrying rock n’ roll antics. The band’s legend grows yearly, and a brand which is stronger today than its ever been has grown up around them. There have been many biographies and studies, but Celebration Day is the first to explore the group’s world and career in this fashion, being an exhaustive A to Z reference work that deals with every song on each of their albums, every major gig they ever did, background information and relevant people, venues, contemporaries, incidents and articles. This meticulous study unearths numerous facts and figures that even the most ardent follower will have missed and takes a more in-depth look at areas that might only warrant passing mention in a typical biography. The authors have recently worked on very well received similar titles on Metallica and AC/DC, and we anticipate great sales potential on this title and are delighted to be working with these two authors.. Both Malcolm Dome and Jerry Ewing are names which will be very familiar to the informed rock reader, both having written for the essential Metal Hammer and Classic Rock magazines, among others. Malcolm has also done a lot of radio work and is actively involved with the online radio station TotalRock, and the pair have previously collaborated on other similar and very successful titles.

    Aerosmith : In full flight (limited flight case edition)

    A pictorial document as seen through the lens of British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines. As was often the case, only one photo ever got published. In the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped. Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums Done with Mirrors, Permanent Vacation and Pump. As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage with Jimmy Page. This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

  • Deep Purple : Wait for the ricochet

    Deep Purple In Rock is not only the band’s most important album but proved to be a milestone in the history of rock music, influencing countless groups and musicians in the four decades since it first appeared. It not only defined the band’s new direction, but firmly established Deep Purple as one of the biggest rock bands of the seventies (and beyond). It also laid the groundwork for the successful and artistically creative period which followed. Upheaval within the group in mid-1969, coupled with indifference to their earlier work had left them almost unknown in Europe. It was only with a change in personnel and a determined period of intense rehearsing, writing and gigging that they managed to reverse their fortunes. With this insightful new book, you can get an insider's perspective on the formation of the Deep Purple line-up that created "In Rock"

  • Deep Purple : The road of golden dust, the deep purple story 1968-76 (jerry bloom)

    A comprehensive story of Deep Purple's golden years 1968-76, which saw the band come from nowhere to have a top 4 US hit with it’s debut single. Within two years the band was in the throes of potential dissolvement when the record company went into liquidation. Fortunately, focussing on their homeland in Britain they re-launched their career with the ground breaking In Rock LP in 1970 - the platform that ensured by 1973 Deep Purple was the biggest selling album artists in America. Band break-ups and in-fighting continually rocked the boat before finally calling it a day in 1976 after a brief UK tour. The Road Of Golden Dust documents the ups and downs, drawing on the author’s interviews with various band and road crew members including founding members Ritchie Blackmore, Jon Lord and Nick Simper, as well as interviews with Roger Glover, Glenn Hughes, roadie Ian Hansford, tour manager Colin Hart plus co-operation from the management company Deep Purple (Overseas) Ltd, that all help to unveil some new stories that help to explain the whys and wherefores that shaped one of Britain’s greatest and most influential rock bands of all time.

    Scorpions : Wind of change (martin popoff)

    No question Scorpions, Germany’s loudest and proudest rock band ever, have been one of that country’s most successful musical exports. Wind of Change documents the band’s career with analysis of every song on every album the Teutonic tone-masters ever crafted. Beginning with Lonesome Crow back in ‘72 through to the triumphant "retirement" album Sting In The Tail, and beyond into Comeblack - the stories of their making are all here. Wind of Change draws on the authors interviews with all of the principals and beyond, including Klaus Meine, Uli Jon Roth, Herman Rarebell, Rudolf Schenker and Matthias Jabs, along with the likes of legendary manager David Krebs, Ralph Rieckermann and Francis Buchholz.

    UFO : Lettin' go: ufo in the 80's & 90's (martin popoff)

    Having written the first book ever on UFO, 2005's long out-of-print Shoot Out the Lights, Martin Popoff, author of over seventy rock books, has now greatly expanded and rewritten the later years material from that title, bringing us now Lettin' Go: UFO in the `80s & `90s. Popoff brings to the project new interviews with the key members throughout the decades, along with a substantial amount of new research to offer what is now the only book to focus on the eighties and nineties era of the band that saw huge turbulence amongst the ranks. Utilising his celebrated one album per chapter method, Popoff analyses the complete catalogue from the period of the band where initially Paul Chapman takes over from the departed Michael Schenker for the albums. No Place To Run, The Wild, the Willing and the Innocent, Mechanix and Making Contact. The journey takes us through the albums following the departure of Chapman and bassist Pete Way and concludes with 1995's Walk On Water that sees the classic line-up reunited with Schenker back on guitar before he sensationally walked out on the band after just four shows of the supporting tour. In and around Popoff's famed meticulous analysis of the catalogue, look for lots of tour talk, revealing nightmares surrounding the band's business, and warnings about how the twin demons of drugs and alcohol can slow a band's progress on the way to the top.
