Dave Thompson, author of If You Like Led Zeppelin..., joins Patrick Phillips on The Patrick Phillips Show to talk about the band's influence and the bands who were influenced by the mighty Zep. Not to mention really odd things about band nicknames, where the name of the band came from, and playing records backward.

About the Book
If You Like Led Zeppelin... is the unique story of how Led Zeppelin came together not just as players, but as influences and ideas. It unearths the music that the musicians themselves were listening to, to open up an entire new world of experience and excitement for both casual and committed fans. It then travels beyond Led Zeppelin, to the bands and artists who in turn took their own lead from the Zep.
