Transcript of Led Zeppelin

By: Bryanna Petri-Rose Led Zeppelin Members How they got their name: The Music When and Where: Albums John Paul Jones The band first came together in 1968 in England. Led Zeppelin is one of the first ever heavy metal rock bands
Though their main genre was hard rock, they infused many other influential genres into their music: blues, folk, Indian, classical, funk, etc.
Some of their most famous songs include "Stairway to Heaven", "Kashmir", "Rock and Roll", "Immigrant Song", and "Black Dog"
The song "All My Love" was written by Robert Plant and dedicated to his son Karac, who died of a respiratory virus in 1977. Jimmy Page John Bonham Robert Plant Jimmy Page (guitar)
John Paul Jones (bass, keyboard, and mandolin)
Robert Plant (vocals)
John "Bonzo" Bonham (drums) Jimmy Page was all that was left of the band The Yardbirds, and went on to recruit new members. Keith Moon and John Entwistle of The Who jokingly claimed that if they were to join Jimmy, the whole thing would "go over like a lead balloon/zeppelin" (completely fail) so they didn't join. After Jones, Bonham, and Plant joined they were deemed The New Yardbirds. The New Yardbirds were nothing like the original Yardbirds anyway, so they changed the name to Led Zeppelin.
