Led Zeppelin Page wrote most of the music early in Led Zeppelin's career, while Plant generally supplied the songs' lyrics. Jones' keyboard-based compositions later became central to the group's music, and their later albums featured greater experimentation. The latter half of the band's career saw a series of record-breaking tours that earned them a reputation for excess and debauchery.

New promo photo april 2014 Heart plays Led Zeppelin’s Stairway To Heaven, makes Robert Plant cry There have been some mighty horrible renditions of Led Zeppelin‘s Stairway To Heaven, but when Nancy and Ann Wilson of Heart performed the song in front of the three remaining members of the legendary British rock band at the Kennedy Center Honors ceremony on Dec. 2, it made Robert Plant cry tears of joy.

Led Zeppelin Sued over ‘Stairway to Heaven’ Guitar Line | KQED Arts Did a band from Los Angeles get ripped off by Led Zeppelin? That’s the claim in a new lawsuit by representatives of the band Spirit, which played some dates with the British rock legends in their early days in America. The story is a familiar one: A band plays a bit of music that sounds a lot like another song; a debate ensues. But in this case, the band is Led Zeppelin, and the song is “Stairway to Heaven,” a megahit so popular it’s been ubiquitous in bars and on the radio for decades. The similarity of the meditative guitar-picking in both 1971’s “Stairway to Heaven” and 1968’s “Taurus,” an instrumental track on Spirit’s self-titled album, has been discussed by music fans for years. Now a lawsuit over the songs’ similarities has sent the debate toward a court date.
The Story Behind Led Zeppelin’s ‘Swan Song’ Revealed Led Zeppelin boasts one of the most impressive — and successful — discographies of the rock era. But the songs that made it to their albums don’t necessarily tell the whole story, as evidenced by a feature in a recent issue of Classic Rock Magazine that traces the evolution of Jimmy Page‘s ‘Swan Song,’ which never appeared on a Zeppelin record — but came awfully close. The ‘Swan Song’ story starts in 1974, when Page brought elements of what was meant to become a four-part suite about the seasons to the sessions for ‘Physical Graffiti.’ At the time, it was an instrumental featuring what Page is quoted as calling “a number of sections and orchestrated overdubs,” and while the band spent time developing it in the studio — you can find pieces from the sessions on YouTube — it was ultimately cast aside.
The 1969 Album Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham Recorded Before 'Led Zeppelin' The album Page, Plant, Jones and Bonham recorded before 1969's Led Zeppelin. Our recent story about Jimmy Page's five best guitar solos as a member of the Yardbirds got us thinking about another legendary pre-Led Zeppelin recording featuring Page. This project, however, features all four members of Led Zeppelin — Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham — recording together before there even was a Led Zeppelin. While still in "New Yardbirds" mode, the four pre-Zeps took part in the August 1968 recording sessions for P.J.
