Details of Led Zeppelin and the Ticket Luck value
Led Zeppelin were a British rock band that formed in September 1968. Led Zeppelin consisted of Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham. With their heavy, guitar-driven sound, Led Zeppelin are regarded as one of the first heavy metal bands. Their rock-infused interpretation of the blues, and folk genres also incorporated Rockabilly, Reggae, Soul, Funk, Jazz, Classical, Celtic, Indian, Arabic, Folk, Pop, Latin, and Country. The band preferred to develop the concept of album-oriented rock.
Over 25 years after disbanding following Bonham's 1980 death, Led Zeppelin continues to be held in high regard for their artistic achievements, commercial success, and broad influence. The band has sold more than 300 million albums worldwide, including 109.5 million sales in the United States, and they are the only band to have had all their albums reach the U.S. Billboard Top 10. Led Zeppelin are ranked No. 1 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.
History of Led Zeppelin
The early days (1968-1970)
The New Yardbirds
The beginnings of Led Zeppelin can be traced back to the British blues-influenced rock band The Yardbirds. Page joined The Yardbirds in 1966 to play bass guitar after the original bassist left the group. Shortly after, Page switched from bass to second lead guitar.Following the departure of Beck in October 1966, The Yardbirds, tired from constant touring and recording, were beginning to wind down. Page wanted to form a supergroup with himself and Beck on guitars, and The Who's rhythm section - drummer Keith Moon and bassist John Entwistle. Vocalists Donovan, Steve Winwood and Steve Marriott were also considered for the project. The group never formed, although Page, Beck and Moon did record a song together in 1966, Beck's Bolero, which is featured on Beck's 1968 album, Truth. The recording session also included bassist-keyboardist John Paul Jones, who told Page that he would be interested in collaborating with him on future projects. A large part of their success can be credited to their lawyer Steve Weiss. The Yardbirds played their final gig in July 1968. However, they were still committed to performing several concerts in Scandinavia.
Led Zeppelin (the first album)
Shortly after their first tour, the group's eponymous first album was released on 12 January 1969. It was a blend of blues, folk, and eastern influences. However, Plant has commented that it is unfair for people to typecast the band as heavy metal, since about a third of their music was acoustic. Peter Grant claimed the album cost ?1,750 to produce. By 1975, the album had grossed $7,000,000.
On September 12, 2007, it was confirmed during a press conference by promoter Harvey Goldsmith that the surviving members of Led Zeppelin will reunite in aid of the Ahmet Ertegun education fund for a show at the O2 Arena in London on 26 November 2007, with Jason Bonham filling in on drums. Tickets were made available via a lottery system through Ahmettribute.com, costing ?125 / $250. The website exceeded its bandwidth allowance and crashed almost immediately following the announcement due to the ticket request site receiving 120 million hits, with 25 million people registering for 20,000 available tickets.
The tribute concert will also feature Pete Townshend, Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings, Paolo Nutini, and Foreigner as supporting acts. Jason Bonham will do double duty drumming for Led Zeppelin and Foreigner, a band Bonham has been a member of since 2004.It is rumored Led Zeppelin are planning another one-off in the under-refurbishment Ulster Hall in Belfast, in 2009.
Allegations of Plagiarism
When Led Zeppelin's debut album was released, it received generally positive reviews, however John Mendelsohn of Rolling Stone magazine, criticized the band for stealing music, notably Black Mountain Side from Bert Jansch's Black Water Side and the riff from Your Time Is Gonna Come from Traffic's Dear Mr. Fantasy. He also accused the band of mimicking black artists, and showing off. This marked the beginning of a long rift between the band and the magazine, with Led Zeppelin rejecting later requests for interviews and cover stories as their level of success escalated.
