Editorial Reviews

'Anyone seeking insight into Plant as a man and a musician will find it here.' Q'There have been countless books on Led Zeppelin but little of substance on lead singer Plant. Methodically researched, the music legend's extraordinary career, influences and legacy are superbly articulated in this tremendous biography of an enigmatic rock star." The Bookseller'Whole lotta truth about Zeppelin's Viking rock god' Mail on Sunday'Particularly enlightening on Plant's formative pre-Zep years in the Midlands, A Life puts the singer's eclectic career into clear context.'
