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.
A straightforward bio of the singer/songwriter though devoid of much of anything about Plant before he turned 15. By no means an exhaustive bio, this reads rather like a Wikipedia Plus article, much of it a phone-in job, with Plant strangely absent from the LZ years.
Shallow Roots of Plant
Robert Plant and Zep are Rock legends. This is a nice read, given Plant biography options, but it could have been written by a 12 year old with good Wikipedia skills. Fails to plumb the depths of his music... The lyrical and melodic contributions he made to Rock music and the incredible energy he's brought to every project he's done. Robert Plant deserves a much deeper treatment. He probably won't do an autobiography, but he should, because his work is historic. Robert, tell us about the music, the creative process, the highs and the lows. It's one of the great stories of all time!
P.S. Stephen Stills is not Canadian! Come on!
This book seemed really well written, it's not authorized but to me it didn't matter one bit, the author really did his home work to put all this together, very informative without going on and on about the dark side that Zeppelin is well known for.
