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.
Excellent book-5 stars
Like other reviewers and fans of rock biographies, I had to dust off all of my Cd’s to refresh my memory of their music. The author mentions Plant being a fan of some American 60’s bands, such as Buffalo Springfield. He also mentions that in preparation/writing the book he listened to some of that group’s music. Maybe I’ve been reading this genre too much, but I noticed a repeated mistake in calling out Stephen Still’s birthplace as Canada (should be Dallas, Texas). Nitt picky, I know.
