Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin formed out of the ashes of The Yardbirds.  Jimmy Page had joined the band in its final days, playing a pivotal role on the group's final album, 1967's Little Games, which also featured string arrangements from John Paul Jones.  During 1967, the Yardbirds were fairly inactive.  Whilst the band members decided the group's future, Page returned to session work in 1967. In the spring of 1968, he played on Jones' arrangement of Donovan's "Hurdy Gurdy Man." During the sessions, Jones requested to be part of any future project Page would develop. Page would have to assemble a band sooner than he had planned. In the summer of 1968, the Yardbirds' Keith Relf and Jim McCarty left, leaving Page and bassist Chris Dreja with the rights to the name, as well as the obligation of fulfilling an upcoming fall tour. Page set out to find a replacement vocalist and drummer. Initially, he wanted to enlist singer Terry Reid and Procol Harum's drummer B.J. Wilson, but neither musician was able to join the group. Reid suggested that Page contact Robert Plant, who was singing with a band called Hobbstweedle.

Inducted into Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 (Performer).

So I have a copy of a Led Zeppelin III album that when it's under a black light it shows a neon splatter pattern. Anybody heard of this before?

I have a copy of Physical Graffiti ss 2-200 where the label on all four sides says ST-SS- 753311 CSM. Cant find it in here, either does any of the matrix number match any in here.

The debate of who was the greatest band of all time is all a matter of opinion and personal taste so I won't tread those waters. Instead I'll add that Led Zeppelin were certainly one of the most influental bands of all time. They were the first to play really heavy blues with John Bonham getting their unique deep bass drum sound by using the oversized kick drum a la Gene Kruppa. With Plant's mystical, high pitched vocals, Jimmy Page's guitar genius and John Paul Jones' musical knowledge for just about any instrument in existance, Led Zeppelin started taking Rock to new levels with their first two albums. With Led Zeppelin III & Led Zeppelin IV (aka Zofo), they really came into their own and people stopped comparing them to Black Sabbath. All from a band comprised of leftovers from the Yardbirds, that rumor has it was named by the Who's drummer Keith Moon when he said that this band was going to 'go over like a led balloon'.
After Bonzo's death, the group felt they could not go on and still have their "Led Zeppelin" sound as they felt that Bonham's drums were a vital component to that sound. Now their music belongs to the ages.

Led Zeppelin - in my opinion the greatest Rock Band of all times. They formed in 1968 from the Ashes of the new "Yardbirds", and though the first Album did not show all of their talent, Plant & Page's Blues-interpretations and their uncompromising Hard Rock opened a whole new dimension to Rock n Roll.

They filled stadiums troughout the world from 1970 till 1980, but drugs and alcohol often led to severe problems, that couldn't even be solved by their brawny manager Peter Grant. John Bonham - maybe the world's best drummer - passed away on September 25, 1980 due to alcohol abuse. This was the end, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant disbanded the group, because John Bonham seemed to be irreplaceable to them.
