Dave Thompson has written a number of books on and about music. Last years Roger Waters Biography, The Man Behind the Wall proved quite good despite the fact I'm neither a Pink Floyd nor a Roger Waters fan. His book I hate New Music the Classic Rock Manifesto, is my favourite book on music, being both a serious look at what ails the music business and funny as hell.
This year, Thompson takes on the subject of Robert Plant, with Robert Plant: The Voice That Sailed the Zeppelin. Promising a lack of interest in Plant's sexual peccadilloes (hint: no shark story), Thompson looks at Plant's total career and examines what it is that keeps him moving. It promises to be, I think, possibly the best of the Robert Plant books.
