Robert Plant is one of the few genuine living rock legends. Frontman of Led Zeppelin, musical innovator and seller of millions of records, Plant has had a profound influence on music for over four decades. But the full account of his life has barely been told ...until now. Robert Plant: A Life is the first complete and comprehensive telling of Plant's story. From his earliest performances in folk clubs in the early 1960s, to the world's biggest stages as Led Zeppelin's self-styled 'Golden God', and on to his emergence as an emboldened solo star. The sheer scale of Zeppelin's success is extraordinary: in the US alone they sold 70 million records, a figure surpassed only by the Beatles. But their success was marred by tragedy. These pages contain first-hand accounts of Plant's greatest highs and deepest lows: the tragic deaths of his son Karac and his friend, Zeppelin drummer John Bonham. Told in vivid detail, this is the definitive story of a man of great talent, remarkable fortitude and extraordinary conviction.

About the Author:

Paul Rees has written about music for over 20 years. In that time he has interviewed everyone from Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and Madonna to Bono, Take That and AC/DC - and his work has been appeared in a range of publications including The Sunday Times Culture, The Sunday Times Magazine, The Telegraph, Q, The Independent, Classic Rock and the Evening Standard. He was also Editor of two of the UK's most successful and long-standing music publications - Q and Kerrang! - for a total of 12 years. Paul is a childhood fan of Led Zeppelin and first saw Robert Plant perform in 1993. He has met and interviewed him several times.

Review:

'Anyone seeking insight into Plant as a man and a musician will find it here.' Q 'There have been countless books on Led Zeppelin but little of substance on lead singer Plant. Methodically researched, the music legend's extraordinary career, influences and legacy are superbly articulated in this tremendous biography of an enigmatic rock star." The Bookseller 'Whole lotta truth about Zeppelin's Viking rock god' Mail on Sunday 'Particularly enlightening on Plant's formative pre-Zep years in the Midlands, A Life puts the singer's eclectic career into clear context.' Dave Lewis, Tight But Loose magazine
