Description

Robert Plant by Paul Rees is the definitive biography of Led Zeppelin's legendary frontman. As lead singer for one of the biggest and most influential rock bands of all time--whose song "Stairway to Heaven" has been played more times on American radio than any other track--Robert Plant defined what it means to be a rock god.

Over the course of his twenty-year career, British music journalist and editor Paul Rees has interviewed such greats as Sir Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, Bono, and AC/DC. Rees now offers a full portrait of Robert Plant for the first time, exploring the forces that shaped him, the ravaging highs and lows of the Zeppelin years--including his relationship with Jimmy Page and John Bonham--and his life as a solo artist today.

Illustrated with more than two dozen photographs, Robert Plant: A LIfe is the never-before-told story of a gifted, complicated music icon who changed the face of rock 'n' roll.

Back cover copy

The front man of Led Zeppelin, one of the biggest and most influential rock bands of all time, Robert Plant defined the very notion of what it means to be a rock god.

But Plant's legacy stretches far beyond Led Zeppelin. Robert Plant: A Life is the story of the forces that shaped him: from his boyhood in England's Black Country to the ravaging highs and lows of the Zeppelin years; from his relationship with Jimmy Page and John Bonham to the solo career that today has him producing some of the most acclaimed work of his career. Rock journalist and editor Paul Rees, who has in the past interviewed Plant at length, paints a rich, complex portrait of a man who was only nineteen when he changed the face of rock 'n' roll.
