Ten best rock biographies

At the Independent, Simon Jablonski named the ten best rock biographies.

One title on the list:
When Giants Walked the Earth
Mick Wall

Imaginatively laid out, Mick Wall's thorough account of Led Zeppelin's rise. As well as a guts-and-all account of the band's antics -- with appreciated attention paid to their infamous manager, Peter Grant -- it examines each band member's individual struggle and inspiration covering feuds, booze, women and the occult.
Read about all ten titles.
