Led Zeppelin were an English rock band that formed in September 1968. Led Zeppelin consisted of Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham. With their heavy, guitar-driven sound, Led Zeppelin are regarded as one of the first heavy metal bands. Their rock-infused interpretation of the blues, and folk genres also incorporated rockabilly, reggae, soul, funk, jazz, classical, Celtic, Indian, Arabic, folk, pop, Latin, and country. The band did not release the popular songs from their albums as singles in the UK, as they preferred to develop the concept of album-oriented rock.
Why I love them - Led Zeppelin was the ultimate band in the 70's. They are the epitome of Rock (Classic Rock) in this day and age. The duo of badass singer Robert Plant and badass guitarist Jimmy Page has yet to be rivaled. My favorites include the How the West Was One concerts series and Led Zeppelin IV.
