Peter Grant

Recommended Posts

I've been an avid fan of Led zeppelin since 1978. I enjoy the learning and sharing of Zeppelin information especially when it involves the fifth member "Peter Grant". In fact, I really enjoy learning of both Jimmy Page and his cohort Peter Grant. Without Peter Grant, Zeppelin would still have been a successful band however they would not have garnered the financial Apex that they achieved without Grant's unwavering direction. For the last couple of years I've really enjoyed learning all I can about Peter Grant's personal and professional life. Grant has inspired me to delve further not only into his business dealings but also with his surviving family members' lives; One of the great mysteries to me yet to be revealed. I encourage and welcome any information on one of the greatest pioneers of the music industry "Peter Grant"

I have on VHS a show I taped from CH 4 circa 2000/2001 about peter grant , I think it was series on the great music managers !! I remember that he ended up in Eastbourne at the end of his life !!!

This thread might receive a better response if it were moved to either the LZ Master Forum or the LZ Newbies Forum.

I am not sure if this link to Sam Rapallo’s memorial to Peter Grant is still functioning: http://www.led-zeppelin.com/EMpeter.html

Another interesting article about Peter Grant can be found here:

I remember seeing Peter Grant around the band and I will admit to being absolutely terrified of the man. His facial expressions, his girth, his bluster, and his demeanor all combined to strike fear in me. When I finally, as an adult, gained some understanding of the music industry and its complex and competitive culture, I came to appreciate Mr. Grant and all that he did for Led Zeppelin. I realize now that, thanks in part to him, I had some of the best experiences of my life.

Mr. Rock & Roll originally aired September 25th 1999 on BBC 4. It is an excellent

documentary on Peter Grant's personal and professional life. Runs about 45 mins.

This was one in a series of similar programs delving into the lives of managers.

I have a number of Peter Grant and Horselunges Manor items in my archive.

Wearing a wig? When she is seated in the car alongside Peter Grant isn't she is a brunette?

If Helen or Warren Grant would like to get in touch I have some images of Horselunges

Manor which go back over 100 years.
