THIS MONTH WE’RE LOOKING AT TWO GREAT BRITISH MONSTERS OF ROCK, LED ZEPPELIN AND PINK FLOYD.

Led ZeppelinVS Pink Floyd

Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin was formed in 1968. Originally they were going to be called The New Yardbirds, after an earlier band, The Yardbirds but the name was changed. One story says that guitarist Jimmy Page asked two members of The Who to form a super-group with him. They didn’t like the idea, saying that it would go down like a lead balloon. So, Page formed the band with Robert Plant and renamed it Led Zeppelin. They released ten albums, including a soundtrack to their film “The Song Remains the Same” but they didn’t name their first four albums. Led Zeppelin IV is considered their best, and the song “Stairway to Heaven” is thought of by many rock fans and musicians as a masterpiece. This song has several different styles, beginning as a folk song and ending in Heavy Metal style. This is a good description of the band’s music as they have never played one style of music. They have played music from the genres of Folk, Rock, Reggae and Latin amongst others. They have had a controversial career and were known for their wild behaviour. They had a reputation for destroying hotel rooms and Jimmy Page had a fascination with the occult. Led Zep was even accused of putting backward messages on their records and Satan worshipping but the messages are debatable. They broke up in 1980 after the death of their drummer John Bonham. They have reunited from time to time, with Bonham’s son Jason on drums.
