The ZEP took flight in 1968 and crashed landed, with the death of their drummer--Bonzo--in 1981. An awesome array of British musicians nonetheless: Page the mystical riff wizzard, Jones providing devestating bass runs, Plant writing bluesy songs with a twinge of Celtic folklore, and Bonzo's fierce drumming. As their name suggests, Zep could go heavy with raunchy songs like 'Dazed and Confused' or light with pensive songs like 'Tangerine.' Their catalog is impressive and the songs have stood the test of time
When the Led Zeppelin took off they took no quarter.

God if he were a rock band; pretty much the greatest fucking thing to ever happen to music.
Dumbass: "hey, i think phil collins is comperable to Led Zeppelin."

Any sensible human: "We are no longer speaking."

four gods that came together to create magic and beauty with music
And God said, "Let there be rock," and there was Led Zeppelin.

Greatest Band ever.
Led Zeppelin wrote Stairway to Heaven, this song has been voted in many rock magazines as being the greatest song ever with the most influential and powerfull guitar solo ever. This song is so good that a rumor started about Zeppelin having sold their souls for it due to the fact that many people believed mortal men could write such a masterpiece.

Take the world's greatest drummer, pair him with one of the world's greatest guitarists, add an amazing singer that can give you chills every time he opens his mouth, throw in an amazing Bassist, and add some of the most inspiring and creative lyrics ever.

There you go, recipe for led zeppelin.
person 1: What is your favorite band?
person 2: Led Zeppelin
person 1: What's a led zeppelin?! They must suck, I've never heard of them. MY favorite singer is britney spears! She's the best EVER!

A blues-oriented band from England that launched its remarkable 13 year musical journey in 1968. Jimmy Page is the primo riff wizzard, Robert Plant's song writing evoked a mystical-Celtic kinda dynamic, John Paul Jones provided incredible bass runs, and the drummer--Bonzo--was the hard, driving force. When you consider their 13 year career it's truely amazing that they kept growing together as musicians and leaving us some pretty awesome tunes to enjoy. Zep is credited for starting-up the whole heavy metal thing, but they also played with finese--acustic numbers. Their biggest hit, Stairway to Heaven, starts slow and cute and builds-up into a raunchy climax.
When the Led Zeppelin took off they took no quarter, dude.
