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.
