Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

Well, it had to happen. Given that Robert Plant has long denied any intention of writing his own autobiography, someone clearly had to step up to the plate and attempt the daunting task of telling the story of rock’s most luminous golden god. For the most part, music writer Paul Rees, author of “Robert Plant: A Life,” has done a fine job in doing just that.

Rees’ credentials as former editor of Q and Kerrang! magazines, amongst other things, have afforded him access to Plant over the years, and to the golden one’s inner circle in more recent times. And while a book written by Mr. P himself would, no doubt, offer more in the way of personal insights and reflection, Rees has done a respectable job in trying to offer a glimpse into the inner workings of the Robert Plant psyche, mostly through quotes from his own past encounters, as well as through interviews with a host of Plant’s friends and musical colleagues (some former, some current). Rees is unflinching in his inclusion of the negative alongside the positive. His account paints a portrait of a man layered with complexity and riddled with contradiction. A hopeless show-off with a self-deprecating sense of humor. A miserly skinflint capable of remarkable acts of generosity and philanthropy. A roguish womanizer now in a respectful, committed relationship. A dictatorial taskmaster with a kindness and love of humankind rarely seen in someone of his age and stature. In the end, it’s a depiction much like the one many Plant fans will have already pieced together after decades of observing this most talented and adventurous of artists.

Well written, well researched, and all in all, an enjoyable read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting details of a complicated artist 26 novembre 2013

I am not a big Zepplin fan however I do enjoy some of Roberts Plant's solo work. I purchased the Sixty Six to Timbuktu retrospective a few years ago and really enjoy the compilation including a lot of the obscure, pre and post Zepplin tracks on the set. Similarily while this autobiography covers the Zepplin period in depth, pre and post Zepplin details are given equal time (and I think are more interesting than the re-hashing of the Zepplin saga). I also think that the book reveals Robert Plant to be a surprisingly "normal" (for the most part) guy who enjoys "trivia night" at his village pub with his old school mates and helps raise money for his local tennis club by fronting a band of amatuers through an R and B set at the annual club fundraiser. I was also impressed by Mr. Plant's tenacity in his early years in the business....I'm not sure many people would have the dedication to take the rejection and abuse he took when he was starting out. Finally, I would also like to thank Mr. Rees for making Steven Stills an honorary Canadian citizen in the book. This book is a good read if you like behind the scenes stories of music and musicians.

I really enjoyed this book , the detail around Robert Plants early life , friends and family gave great insight into the man he has become. I particularly liked the way the author dealt with his life after Led Zeppelin , he has truly become his own man.

Okay, that was a Jethro Tull title, but I was on a roll.

A decent enough book, which for me was the most useful in filling in the blanks in RP's early life and his efforts to get a credible band off the ground. Despite a God-gifted voice, success did not just fall into his lap. He was just weeks away from his self-declared deadline for quitting his attempts to get a musical career going - and get 'a real job', when Pagey and Grant made him an offer he would have been mental to refuse.

The book takes us almost up to present time, his latest projects, and his relationship with Maine-born singer-songwriter Patty Griffin. If anything, the book dissolves some of the Plant Mystique, revealing a less artsy person than I had imagined, yet whose talent and passion for music and whose drive to always be creating something new has made him a living legend by any definition.

The book makes it clear that Led Zeppelin will never reform, unless Robert ever has a complete change of heart. The decision has been his all along. Pagey, JPJ and Jason would do it at the drop of a hat.

The book is quite well written, although there were many times when I had to go back a paragraph or two, just to be sure of who the hell was being quoted. Bravo to Andy Smith for pointing out that Stephen Stills is NOT a Canadian. Hey, we'd be happy to claim him, but he's from my wife's home town of Dallas, Texas. The editor didn't exactly catch everything else, either. There was more than one place where the confusion between "in to" and "into" caught my attention. When I was at school you didn't "go in to" something.

Not perfect, but well worth a read.

I enjoyed this book as a music fan and particularly a Robert Plant fan. You get a comprehensive look at his life and work. I gave it three stars though because I felt I didn't really hear much from Plant himself in the book. I didn't feel I learnt much more than I already knew about Plant the man. Nevertheless it was a really enjoyable read for any fan of the man, the music and the decade of the seventies - as a teenager at that time this book really brought back all the fun memories of the time!
