Led Zeppelin, Founded in 1979 by Yard Birds guitarist Jimmy Page. Jimmy Page knew Robert Plant and invited him to join because of his amazing voice. Robert Plant did many sessions with John Paul Jones (Songwriter for No Quarter, Greatest Bass player ever). John Bonham was known for his powerful drumming and odd timing. Led Zeppelin dominated the 70's with soldout arenas and the best duo songwriters Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, Until the untimely death of John Bonham. According to alot of magazines and sites Led Zeppelin is the No.1 Influential band of all time, and very greatly contributed to heavy metal. Led Zeppelin produced many albums such as Houses of the holy, Led Zeppelin 1, Led Zeppelin 2, Led Zeppelin 3, Led Zeppelin 4 (ZoSo), Physical Graffiti and many more. The end to Led Zeppelins reign was in 1980 with the death of the best drummer of all time. The band members knew they could not carry on without that irreplacible drummer (Even though Rumours spread about Cozy Powell being in the band). Led Zeppelin made many films such as "The Song Remains The Same". Their best hit songs include: Stairway to Heaven, Black Dog, Rock and Roll, The Song Remains The Same, The Ocean, No Quarter, D'yer Mak'er (Pronounced Jah-may-kah), Whole Lotta Love, HeartBreaker, Tangerine, Over The Hills and Far Away, Dazed and Confused, Moby Dick, Ramble On, Since ive Been Loving you, When The Levee Breakes, Kashmir, The Lemon Song, Achilles Last Stand (Noted by Robert Plant to be the bands best song, with Jimmy Page's best Solo besides Stairway) and Communication Breakdown plus alot more great songs.
