This is the annual celebration of the band who over 12 short years (1968-1980) undoubtedly changed the face of music by releasing eight studio and one live album which have gone on to sell in excess of 200 million copies worldwide. Since 1982 many box sets, compilations, outtake and live CDs and DVDs have been released to further cement their standing as one of the most influential and significant bands in musical history. Few bands can claim to have toppled The Beatles from the #1 position on the charts or broken The Beatles tour box-office records, Led Zeppelin achieved both.
Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and John Bonham originally started touring in 1968 as the "New Yardbirds" but changed their name to Led Zeppelin and were signed to Atlantic Records in the same year, managing to record their debut album "Led Zeppelin l" in just 30 days, which was released in early 1969. Over the next decade they toured the world relentlessly, establishing the benchmark for both exhilarating live performance and rock&roll debauchery, whilst making it back into the studio to release "Led Zeppelin ll" (1969), "Led Zeppelin lll" (1970), "Led Zeppelin lV" (1971), "Houses Of The Holy" (1973), "Physical Graffiti" (1975), "Presence" (1976), "In Through The Out Door" (1979) as well as the live album "The Song Remains The Same" in 1976. The bands prodigious talents spawned a huge array of classic songs including "Black Dog", "Rock and Roll", "Misty Mountain Hop", "Immigrant Song", "Going To California", "Kashmir", "Trampled Underfoot", "When The Levee Breaks", "Whole Lotta Love", "Heartbreaker/Living Loving Maid", "Ramble On", "D'yer Mak'er", "Good Times, Bad Times", "Communication Breakdown", "No Quarter" and of course "Stairway To Heaven", which remains the most played song in radio history. The tragic death of drummer John Bonham in 1980 ultimately signalled the end for the band, but for many the song remains the same and always will.
