Thank you PP for starting this thread.

The legendary Ritchie Yorke was a gentle soul who touched the lives of many and it was with great sadness to hear of his passing. He was a friend & mentor and his life's work had a tremendous effect on me. RIP Ritchie.

A sad loss for all Led Zeppelin fans. :(

Ritchie Yorke was the FIRST Led Zeppelin biographer and champion! No Led Zeppelin fan's library was complete without Yorke's 1976 biography of Led Zeppelin with the distinctive Pez candy dispenser cover art. I am grateful that he remained alive long enough to complete an updating of his seminal Led Zeppelin book.

Bravo Ritchie Yorke. Rest in peace. ✌

Sad news. He was definitely one of the first to journalists to support the band, and his first book on the band was a must read (and the only one available for a long time). RIP

Ritchie Yorke is indeed Led Zeppelin's first biographer and among the very few journalists they trusted completely. 

So very sad to hear of his passing.

Rest in Peace, Ritchie.

Sad. The first Zep Bio I ever read was his...,,with the PEZ front cover and him biting into a torpedo sandwich on the reverse. It was a great book. RIP.
