Founding Fathers of Heavy Metal, Part 3; Led Zepplin

"Led Zeppllin just made music, they didn't care if they were liked. They left that to the BeeGees."

Wayne Campbell

Now I know that once again I'm preaching to the heavy metal choir, but one can't talk about the founding fathers of metal without mentioning Led Zepplin. Led Zepplin were considered by many to be pioneers in the rock music industry and many bands today have them, as well as Black Sabbath to thank for their sound today.

John Bonham- drunms

Robert Plant- vocals

Jimmy Page- guitars

John Paul Jones- bass

My first experience of Led Zepplin was Led Zepplin IV or as I called it back then, "The album with the funny shapes for a title." It contains the all time classic "Stairway to Heaven," you know, the song that every apsiring guitarist plays in music shops when they are shopping for a new guitar. But "IV" also has some other great songs like, "Rock And Roll," "Black Dog," "Misty Mountain Hop" and "When the Levee Breaks." All of these make the fourth album a killer album.

Their are many more studio album, greatest hits albums and even some live albums,if you look hard enough,  which have stood the test of time and are now considered classics. This includes their most recent "Mothership" which is a two CD release of some of their greatest hits and includes a DVD. But enough of the adverts, besides, I'm not getting paid to say that.

While some metalheads may not want to admit it, it can be rightfully said that everyone in the metal world can look to Led Zepplin as one of the founding fathers of heavy metal.

Next week will be the last of the Founding Fathers of Metal and will feature Deep Purple. After that I will visit two other influential bands from the 70s.
