Robert Plant Gives Extensive Interviews for Forthcoming Biography

Robert Plant

Legendary former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant gave extensive interviews for a forthcoming new biography from HarperCollins, to be called ‘Robert Plant: A Life.’ The book is due for release this October in the U.K. and Canada and then next January in the U.S.

According to The Bookseller, author Paul Rees, former editor of Q and Kerrang! magazines, talked to Plant, as well as his key confidants for ‘Robert Plant: A Life.’ The book will cover Plant’s career from his pre-Led Zeppelin days through to his celebrated collaboration with Alison Krauss, 2007’s ‘Raising Sand.’ That means fans shouldn’t be expecting any insight into more recent rumors of a possible Zeppelin reunion, in the wake of the band’s release of the ‘Celebration Day’ film.

“Robert Plant’s stature as one of the greatest frontmen of all time is without question and as fans of his music from Led Zep to present, we have long waited to publish his story,” Natalie Jerome of Harper Non-Fiction U.K. said in a statement. “This book is as close to Plant telling his own story in his own words as we’ve seen or heard to date.”

Plant’s band mate Jimmy Page collaborated with writer Brad Tolinski on a similar project called ‘Light and Shade: Conversations with Jimmy Page,’ released last October.

The singer known throughout rock as “Percy” recently announced his first U.S. date for 2013, an appearance at the inaugural JamBase Live Festival in July with his backing band the Sensational Space Shifters.
