Providing a wealth of information on the icons, culture, and mythology of America's most beloved music, this biographical encyclopedia will serve as an invaluable resource for students and music fans alike. Illustrated with both rarely seen and classic photos, this, finally, is the rollicking story behind the turbulent and celebrated band that came on fast and furious and finally flamed out, chronicled by one eyewitness who was always at the periphery of the storm, and often at its eye.

Fifty years after their first practice in a Soho basement, Led Zeppelin continues to fascinate new generations of listeners. While their legendary back-stage debauchery has been written about extensively in other books, All the Songs is all about the music, detailing the studio magic and inspiration that made all nine albums go platinum, including Led Zeppelin IV which was certified x23 platinum and has sold more than 37 million copies worldwide.

Eddie Trunk's Essential Hard Rock and Heavy Metal Volume II
In the first book I already knew a lot about the artists covered. By reading this book I learned more about artists I have heard songs from, but did not really know that well.
I like the format where Eddy gives his favourite playlist of each band, discography, have a fun-fact section and tells about an underground classic album, live album, dvd connected to t I actually liked Volume II better than Volume I. I like the format where Eddy gives his favourite playlist of each band, discography, have a fun-fact section and tells about an underground classic album, live album, dvd connected to the band.
In the main sections for each band he describes the music, how the band got popular, his meetings with the band through the years, his opinion of their music and what the band members are doing today. This book is especially good if you are a fan of 80s hard rock and heavy metal. I recommend it to all fans of rock. For me that will be even more interesting. It is till a lot of influental bands Eddy has not given coverage yet in his Essential-books. Sep 11, Kinksrock rated it really liked it. I'm still browsing Trunk's books, and I am admittedly not going to read every word.
I am not interested in all of the bands and performers.
Eddie Trunks Essential Hard Rock and Heavy Metal Volume II
Trunk provides information, stories, and his insight about the top players in hard rock and heavy metal. His enthusiasm comes through. Fans can debate about which performers should have been or should not have been included.

Personally, I am annoyed that Poison is in volume 1 and Ratt a superior band IMHO was relegated to a footnote, only to get full treatment in volume 2. But these are Trunk's books, so the evaluations are necessarily subjective. Apr 09, Harry Sahl rated it it was ok.
Sadly, this is not as good as the first book which only got a three star rating from me. The book contains another 35 essential hard rock and heavy metal bands and I was disappointed that one of my all-time favorites couldn't crack Eddie Trunk's top Eddie has a section in the back of the book called 'More Essentials' that lists another 23 bands which get a paragraph dedicated to them. One of my very favorites - Savatage is included there. Still, no Bulletboys?
Eddie includes Great White but here's their introduction -"Great White is often erroneously called a metal band, when, in reality they have very little to do with that genre of music. Early on, they dabbled in edgier fare, and once even toured as an opening act for Judas Priest. But for me, the band's sound has always screamed blues. Another big difference in our opinions of his selections is he choose to include single artists like Lita Ford and Ace Frehley as essential. There's a nice pic of Eddie with Lita Ford and the Wilson sisters and I would have preferred Heart as being essential, but it's okay to chalk it up to our musical tastes varying.
The real problem with the book is that Eddie's ego is so huge that much of the book was wasted space with him patting himself on the back. He says space is limited but repeats himself. We get it, Eddie! You were at Rocklahoma - you mention it another dozen times in the book!
He's lifelong friends with everybody.
