It was pure sex, above all. Along with Jimmy Page's ubiquitous guitar and John Bonham's powerful drums, he seemed to be the driving force in the Led Zeppelin cosmos. Their highly potent and vibrant hardrock seemed like a permanent penis to the audience of the late sixties and early seventies.
Spring 1965: A narrow, attractive, shy man travelled by ship from New York to England. He has a suitcase full of cash, $110,500 that he had an insurance company pay him out of, a guitar and a beguilingly soft voice. The newcomer is Jackson C. Frank, is twenty-two and has the dream to record his debut album in London. Ten compositions are available.
Frank knows that two of his role models - Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel - are touring England right now. Despite his notorious shyness, he makes contact with the two of them, gets to know the young folk heroes Al Stewart and Sandy Denny through them, and finally really gets Paul Simon to produce his album, while Denny falls in love with the young lad.
