About the Author
After forming a band with a high school buddy (Jeff played bass guitar) and turned him on to Led Zeppelin via his mother’s vinyl records, a light came on. Led Zeppelin was THE greatest band in the world. As a tribute, Jeff launched the fansite Achilles Last Stand, in January 1996. Other Zeppelin sites often had posted incorrect data and one primary goal that Jeff had was to have the best, most-factual website with Led Zeppelin content on the internet.
One topic that Jeff took extreme pride with on the website was all of the gear that the members of Led Zeppelin used throughout their careers. As the process progressed, Jeff transitioned the gear information from online to print.
Led Zep Gear is the first book of its kind written about Led Zeppelin. It is the results of more than fifteen years of research and countless interviews with people from the Zeppelin camp, gear manufacturers and fans.
When not updating his websites or writing about Led Zeppelin, Jeff enjoys spending time with his wife, son and daughter. Jeff resides in Des Moines, Iowa.
