Since their spectacular appearance last year, the rumours about a tour by Led Zeppelin have not stopped. This, it seems, will actually take place. As a prelude to this historic concert tour we bring you an excerpt from the wonderful illustrated book "A Tribute To Led Zeppelin". The recordings from the famous REX collection presented there celebrate the biggest rock band of all times.

Myth of the Resurrection
What would The Doors be without Jim Morrison? Or the other way around, what would Jim Morrison be without The Doors? Morrison is an icon, the Doors are a legend. A myth that is refreshed every few years with a new compilation. 40 years after the release of their cult debut The Doors now let all their samplers lead into a "The Very Best Of". But who needs a new Doors compilation? After all, no new material has been added for 35 years, and the only two albums without Morrison were never released on CD.
ECLIPSED IN BERLIN
"We were in a transitional phase as a band: from a bunch of kids in a van hunting for a record deal to a band that finally had that deal in their pockets and was now trying to record the follow-up to a successful debut album This is Fish's assessment of the situation Marillion found himself in a few months after the release of "Script For A Jester's Tear" in spring 1983.
In April 1983 Marillion and drummer Mick Pointer had sent the band founder into the desert almost overnight due to his blatant technical weaknesses. At the same time "Script For A Jester's Tear" had hit the somewhat dull rock scene of the early eighties like a bomb, and Marillion had become the spearhead of the still young neoprog scene, to which bands like IQ, Pendragon or Pallas gradually joined. After the expulsion of Pointers the search for a new drummer began. And this one turned out to be a real nightmare for the band.
