One of my favorite bands.
On August 12th, 1968, in a small basement at 39 Gerrard Street in London, England, Page, Plant, Jones & Bonham assembled and played together for the first time. All four were stunned by what happened the instant they began playing. As skilled musicians (to put it mildly), they immediately recognized that the melding of their individual talent yielded an immensely powerful chemistry. They had bottled lightning & they knew it. I’d wager that their faces probably resembled some of these overwhelmed kids. In all of rock’s storied history, Led Zeppelin remain unequaled. via:343arc1
