The Power and Excess of Led Zeppelin [contains audio interviews]
Author: Barney Hoskyns
Pubpsher: Faber & Faber
This edition contains over two and a half hours of audio interviews with members of Led Zeppelin. A unique look at the history, adventures, myths and realities of this most legendary and powerful of bands, Trampled Under Foot is a labour of love based on hours of first-hand and original interviews. What emerges is a compelling portrait of the four musicians themselves, as well as a fresh insight into the close-knit entourage that protected them, from Peter Grant to Richard Cole to Ahmet Ertegun, giant figures from the long-vanished world of 1970s rock. Featuring many rare and never before seen photographs, it is also the first book on Led Zeppelin to cover such recent events as their triumphant 2007 O2 Arena gig and Robert Plant's Grammy-winning resurgence of recent years.
No One Ever Chooses to Be Trampled Underfoot . . . Or do they? The effects of Fate were immediately felt by the Benedict family after their move in 1968, from New York City to New Jersey, and reverberate far into the future in this dramatic and fast-paced, stand-alone follow-up novel. Trampled Underfoot takes us on one more nostalgic journey through the 1970s and, once again, Ms. Good blurs the lines between true life events and fiction-seamlessly picking up the story from when we last saw Lia Benedict at the crossroads of life. It's spring of 1976 and Lia, the hopeless romantic, is now 23 years of age and, whether by choice or by the hands of Fate, had recently become Mrs. Vic Somers. She'd adopted the same controversial beliefs first introduced by her mother, Marie, upon her father's untimely death in 1970. This latest development creates a deeper rift in relations within the Benedict family. Vic Somers followed his bride's footsteps in her quest for righteousness and God's blessing, but has Vic's defective heart really changed from the cheating ways it once possessed? Downtrodden, Lia's faith is shaken and her confidence crushed, but what can she do? Nothing. "My life's been set in stone and the cement is hardening around my feet." Immobilized and in denial, the dogma of a strict religion places an unhealthy fear of The Judgment Day if she makes any missteps in the here and now.

How can YOU help bring hope to our nation? At a time when it seems that our nation is toppling over—morally, culturally, economically, and politically—you may be asking this question: Is there any hope for America? Dr. Tony Evans says YES. In America: Turning a Nation to God, Dr. Evans helps Christians understand that at the core, America's problems are spiritual. And, God and His rule are America's only hope. As His people, God is calling us to return to Him in humility and repentance, to submit to His rule and authority. Only as we commit to doing so, individually and collectively, will we realize that hope. We hold within the collective body of Christ not only the power but also the capacity to put our country back on the path of ascendancy. This straight-forward teaching, when embraced by believers in our nation, will usher in the greatest revival in American history.
