Summary

The late Peter Grant managed Led Zeppelin to global stardom. But his life story was every bit as extraordinary and dramatic as the musicians he looked after. For the first time ever, the Grant family have allowed an author access to previously unseen correspondence and photographs to help build the most complete and revealing story yet of a man who was a pioneer of rock music management but also a son, a husband and a father.

Published to coincide with Led Zeppelin's 50th anniversary, Bring It on Home charts Peter Grant's rise from wartime poverty through his time as a nightclub doorman, wrestler and bit-part actor to the birth of rock'n'roll in the 1950s. From here, it explores his pivotal role in the formation of Led Zeppelin and charts the impossible highs and lows of life on the road with rock's most outrageous band.

Bring It on Home includes almost 100 new interviews with family members, friends, musicians and rival managers and walk-on parts for Sharon Osbourne, Bob Dylan, Stanley Kubrick, Freddie Mercury, Elizabeth Taylor, the FBI, the CIA, the Mafia - and Elvis Presley. As Grant's son Warren says now, 'My dad knew everyone'.

It is the first biography to reveal the truth behind Led Zeppelin's demise, Grant's subsequent fall from grace amid death threats and the shadow of organised crime, and his final days as a man who shunned the excesses of the music industry in favour of his friends and family.

With access to several previously unpublished interviews - including Grant's last and most revealing yet - Bring It on Home sheds new light on the story of rock's greatest manager and one of the giants of modern music history.

Brilliant

I had to stop near the end as it was getting too emotional. Just finished it now and I can honestly say it’s been an eye opener to know about the bands years from beginning to end.

I do wonder if Grant could’ve found happiness in just looking after another band afterwards but I guess his reputation as the “God Father“ lay before him in the ever changing music industry.

RIP Peter, I never knew you but I have learned from reading about your legacy.
