Legendary rock band Led Zeppelin was formed in London in 1968. It consisted of guitarist Jimmy Page, singer Robert Plant, bassist and keyboardist John Paul Jones, and drummer John Bonham. Over the years that the band was active, it became one of the most influential rock acts in history. Many people also believe that its heavy, guitar-driven sound made it the precursor to heavy metal. Even though at first, critics were lukewarm about the band’s music, its albums would achieve significant commercial success, albums that include “Led Zeppelin,” “Led Zeppelin II,” “Led Zeppelin III,” “Led Zeppelin IV” and “Houses of the Holy.” It is probably best known by the general public for its song “Stairway to Heaven,” which appeared on its fourth album, “Led Zeppelin IV.” Led Zeppelin disbanded after Bonham died in 1980.
