An elusive figure rescued from a prosaic treatment,
This review is from: Robert Plant: A Life: The Biography (Hardcover)
In the opening "Encore" chapter, Rees marks out the territory he is about to explore with a deliberately fanciful and reflective preamble that lets you know just how fugitive his subject is going to be; and it becomes evident by the end of this intro that the missing "authorized" epithet in the book's title is as much an opportunity as it is a potential disappointment. Rees rises to the challenge by teasing a story out of the scores of fresh interviews he has conducted in his research. True, this story is a "take" on Plant, but its one that is compelling both in its authenticity and its readability. Plant fans, ignore at your peril.
