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…

Generously written biography of the singer from Kidderminster who caught the eye of Jimmy Page, who would go on to become a golden god of the rock firmament. There’s so much more to the Robert Plant story than just Led Zeppelin, and this book admirably captures that – whilst of course a big part of the story, for Plant it was always about the music, and his subsequent endeavours demonstrate that.

Also you learn that following the truncated 1977 Zeppelin tour, Robert played some dates with a bunch of local musicians, who called themselves “Melvin Giganticus and the Turd Burglars”.
