Now that I know them I can confirm that from my point of view Led Zeppelin is one of the most influential bands of all time. And I say that now that I know them because oddly enough until not long ago only known drawing of any of the covers of their albums Led Zeppelin. This rock band, despite not being already active, remains a benchmark for many other bands of today. His influence is still noting. Many of those who start now are trying to receive inspiration from those sounds from a few years ago. Stairway To Heaven remains one of the most played songs on the radio, especially in stations from United States, where people still solicitando which pinched it.
Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Bonham and John Paul Jones joined in 1968 to form the band which was the precursor to Heavy Metal according to some theories. The incredible guitar sounds are to blame for this. These are present in most discs of Led Zeppelin. If to this we add that Heavy Metal has its home in the 70 and 80s it is easy to decide therefore that something has to do one thing with the other. Whether or not the band that did appear this new musical style, the truth is that at least if got this became popular.
I said before that these emphatic guitar sounds are present in most of the discography of Led Zeppelin, but I have to add that not at all. Led Zeppelin also offers us other styles of other colors. His repertoire includes music from blues, pop, or the aforementioned metal. The foregoing attached to their numbers extratosfericos, with millions and millions of albums sold, hundreds of thousands of requests for inputs above those available at his last concert, # 1 on VH1’s 100 greatest Hard Rock, etc. etc makes it to be, from my point of view, one of the most important rock of history groups.
