The band is on hiatus. They are all home enjoying their time with family and friend. For some they frolic down by the stream. Some drive around in their fancy little cars. Some play make believe with the wife. Then it all comes crashing down when band manager Peter Grant says lets go to America.
Led Zeppelin, the rock band is mad up of John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, and Robert Plant. When this documentary was made the band was the best in the world. Their shows were always sold out and the music in a stadium or large auditorium was best of the best. No one could match it. Robert Plants vocals could send you to nirvana and back. Jimmy Page's guitar licks could take you to outer apace and depending on what drug you were on for the show you probably thought you were out there.
The film shows the talent of the band with songs but what also goes on behind the scenes during the show. Peter Grant as manager was a no nonsense kind of guy. He wanted all the money to be going into his and the bands pockets. He did not want anybody trying to boot leg the bands likeness in any way.
The film does show how the band would be almost human to us the viewer. The laughter, the caring of the families, and truly how the band would react to the fans themselves. The songs from the album and others they had put in were of the highest quality you could ask for. No Quarter was so beautifully done. Stairway to Heaven made you feel as if you were right there in the audience. This has to be one of the best music documentaries ever made.
Directors Peter Clifton and Joe Massot brought us probably one of the greatest bands to have ever taken the stage and brought them into our homes. For me the Houses of the Holy tour at Tampa Stadium was where I first saw the band. I will say this watching Led Zeppelin as the first band to see that very few bands could compare. I saw one of the best and to watch this film so will you. Enjoy.
