Page's first choice for the lead singer was Terry Reid, but Reid declined the offer and suggested Robert Plant. Plant eventually accepted the position, recommending former Band of Joy drummer John Bonham. John Paul Jones, at the suggestion of his wife, contacted Page about the vacant position. Having known Jones from his session days, Page agreed to let him join as the final member. Led Zeppelin's music was rooted in the blues. The influence of abrupt, non-fluid American blues of Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters and Skip James was particularly apparent, especially on Led Zeppelin I and II.[126] Tracks were structured around the twelve-bar blues on every studio album except one, and the blues directly and indirectly influenced other songs both musically and lyrically. Led Zeppelin targeted age groups from ages 16 to the 40's.
