The first and only complete biography of this genuine rock legend including all solo work post-Led Zeppelin.
Told in its entirety for the very first time, this is the story of an enthusiastic young kid from the West Midlands who adored his humble blues roots and defied his stern parents by becoming one of the world’s most recognisable and iconic rock superstars. This biography brings his career bang up-to-date, covering his latest album Raising Sand with the revered bluegrass singer Alison Krauss and the highly-publicised Led Zeppelin reunion in December, 2007.
For the first time, his solo years, his recordings with
his former Led Zep cohort Jimmy Page and numerous guest appearances are covered in depth in a complete rock biography. The author also delves into Plant’s earliest and ongoing influences and passions such as Southern American blues and classic fifties R&B; the book also places Plant’s later work in the wider context of both Led Zep’s own legacy and the broader history of modern music.
