August 25th - This Day in Music

Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin were originally formed in 1968 by guitarist Jimmy Page under the name “The New Yardbirds”, based on Page’s previous band, The Yardbirds. The band formed when Jimmy Page (guitar) recruited Robert Plant (vocals, harmonica), John Paul Jones (bass guitar, keyboards, mandolin), and John Bonham (drums). With their heavy, guitar-driven blues-rock sound, Led Zeppelin are regularly cited as one of the progenitors of heavy metal and hard rock music. However, the band’s individualistic style drew from many sources and transcends any one genre. more

In 1994, the highly anticipated reunion between Led Zeppelin members Robert Plant and Jimmy Page occurred on a 90 minute “UnLedded” MTV project.

Robert Plant,
“The will and the eagerness with Unledded were fantastic and [Page] was really creative. Jimmy and I went in a room and it was back. His riffs were spectacular. To take it as far as we did, and the tour we did - it’s one of the most ambitious and mind altering experiences.” The Album.

Jimmy Page and Robert Plant’s album was released with the following tracks…in addition to the acoustic numbers featured, there are reworking’s of a number of Led Zeppelin classics, along with four Middle-Eastern Moroccan-influenced songs: “City Don’t Cry,” “Yallah,” “Wonderful One,” and “Wah Wah”.
