Kuvaus

Peter Grant is the most famous music manager of all time. Acknowledged as the “fifth member of Led Zeppelin,” Grant has had his story appear in fragments across countless Zeppelin biographies, but none have explored who this brilliant and intuitive manager yet flawed and sometimes dangerous man truly was. No one has successfully captured the scope of his personality or his long-lasting impact on the music business. Acclaimed author and journalist Mark Blake seeks to rectify that.

Bring It On Home is the first book to tell the complete, in-depth, and uncensored story of this industry giant. With support from Grant’s family, new interviews with Led Zeppelin’s surviving band members, and access to Grant’s extensive archives as well as scores of unpublished material, including Grant’s never-before-published final interview, Blake sets out to not only shed new light on the history of Led Zeppelin but also on the wider story of rock music in the ’60s and ’70s. Grant had a hand in the careers of Chuck Berry, Rod Stewart, Bad Company, Queen, the Rolling Stones, The Who, Guns N’ Roses, and countless others, and his revolutionary approach to business, which included putting the band first, created a new industry standard that’s still in effect today.

Full of new insights into Grant’s early life, new details about the formation of and his relationship with Led Zeppelin, an unrevealed plot by Jamaican gangsters to kidnap the band members’ children, letters from police regarding threats made against the band by American Satanists, as well as Grant’s seclusion late in life after the dissolution 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 music management, found both peace and happiness in a more ordinary life. It is a celebration, a cautionary tale, and a compelling human drama.
