Alfred Music Publishing Releases Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffiti in Platinum Drum Transcriptions

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Thursday, October 07, 2010

Alfred Music Publishing, the leader in educational music publishing since 1922 and the official print publisher for Led Zeppelin and thousands of other artists, is proud to add to its catalog of authentic Led Zeppelin drum transcription books with the album-matching folio to the band’s sixth studio album, Physical Graffiti.

Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffiti Platinum Drums draws from more than 30 years of documentation, interviews, and recorded footage to present unprecedentedly accurate drum transcriptions for all 13 songs on the album, allowing drummers the opportunity to learn the genius behind John Bonham’s iconic grooves and fills.

The songbook also features vintage Zeppelin photographs and historical forewords by Guitar World magazine’s editor-in-chief, Brad Tolinski, that chronicle the history of one of classic rock’s greatest bands.

Physical Graffiti, their sixth record, was the first album lengthy enough to showcase the complete breadth of a vision that had been in place since the group’s debut in 1969,” says Tolinski. “[The album] was an immediate commercial success, becoming the first album in rock history to go platinum on advance orders alone.”

Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffiti Platinum Drums is now available for $19.99. Also available separately are albums I-V, as well as In Through the Out Door and Presence from the Led Zeppelin Platinum Drums catalog. Pick up your copies at a local music retail store, or buy them today at
