Did Led Zeppelin invent heavy metal? Well, they were certainly responsible for the trappings, images, and even the excesses that came to be known as that much-revered and much-hated musical form. The difference is they generally made it sound good...and often great, taking the white boy blues originally…more


Trivia and Quotes

  • Led Zeppelin is a hard rock band comprised of Guitarist Jimmy Page, Vocalist Robert Plant, Bassist/ Keyboardist "John Paul Jones" and Drummer John Bohnam.

    Led Zeppelin is easily on of the best bands ever. Jimmy Page is one of the best Guitar players in the world, John Bohnam is in my opinion the second greatest drummer ever, Robert Plant has a great voice, and John Paul Jones is equally talented. They all mix together to create a fantastic sound and they have influenced more types of music than the majority of other classic bands. They practically created hard rock and metal. They have influenced progressive rock and soft rock as well. Their best song in many people's opinion is Stairway to Heaven, but I've always liked the Immigrant Song, Whole Lotta Love, and Fool in the Rain just as much. They are a very unique band and are definitely one of the all time greats.moreless
  • Led Zeppelin created hard rock/heavy metal. Period.

    No musical act in history, with the exception of maybe Elvis, was more orignal than Led Zeppelin. When Jimmy Page started the band in 1968, little did he know that the band would dominate music in the 70s and then be known as one of the top 5 bands of all time. They one of the best guitarists the world has ever seen in Jimmy Page. Robert Plant had a powerful voice that is just impossible to imitate. There was John Bonham who is arguably the best drummer of all time. Finally, John Paul Jones created exceptional basslines which are still imitated today. It is a shame that the band broke up in 1980 due to Bonham's death, because I never got to see them as I would not be born until 10 years later.moreless
