The Power and the Glory: Led Zeppelin and the making of IV

Barney Hoskyns, Rock's Backpages, July 2006

Author’s note: This is the full, unexpurgated version of a piece for Uncut magazine. It is itself a very truncated distillation of the full-length study of Led Zeppelin’s fourth album that I wrote for Rodale Press.

Total word count of piece: 9632
