Deeper Digs in Rock: Bring it on Home: Peter Grant, Led Zeppelin, and Beyond - The Story of Rock's Greatest Manager
This week the Rock N Roll Archaeologist sits down with Mark Blake, author of the just released Bring It On Home: Peter Grant, Led Zeppelin, and Beyond--The Story of Rock's Greatest Manager. Mark Blake is a former Assistant Editor of Q magazine, a long-time contributor to its sister title MOJO, and has written for Rolling Stone, the Times (London), Classic Rock, and the Daily Telegraph. He is the editor of two definitive music books, Dylan: Visions, Portraits & Back Pages and Punk: The Whole Story, and is the author of the Pink Floyd biography Comfortably Numb and the Queen biography Is This the Real Life? So he has the pedigree to dive into the life of Peter Grant. Bring It On Home is the first book to tell the complete uncensored story of this industry giant. With support from Grant's family interviews with Led Zeppelin's surviving band members, and access to Grant's extensive archive and scores of unpublished material, including his never-before-published final interview, Blake sheds new light on the history of Led Zeppelin and on the wider story of rock music in the 1960s and '70s. Full of new insights into Grant's early life as an actor, wrestler, and road manager for rock 'n' roll pioneers Chuck Berry and Little Richard; the formation of Led Zeppelin; his seclusion following the demise of the band; and his recovery from substance abuse, Bring It On Home reveals a man who, after the extraordinary highs and lows of a career in rock 'n' roll, found peace and happiness in a more ordinary life. It is a celebration, a cautionary tale, and a compelling human drama. Listen it as Mark and Christian dig deep into Peter Grantâ€™s full and famous life. http://www.markrblake.com https://www.amazon.com/Bring-Home-Zeppelin-Beyond-Greatest-ebook/dp/B07BVNYB6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1546801260&sr=8-1&keywords=mark+blake
