Check out two best Rock N’ Roll drummers of all-time, John Bonham of Led Zeppelin and Keith Moon of The Who wearing the same Snoopy Peanuts Sweatshirt!!!
People post these mash-ups all the time, but god damn it, this The Beatles x Led Zeppelin mash-up of “Helter Skelter” & “Whole Lotta Love” by producer/mixer Soundhog is amazing.
This is most likely the most famous photo of Led Zeppelin. It was taken by photographer Bob Gruen shortly after Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and John Bonham exit their airplane “The Starship” in New York 1973.
One of my favorite Led Zeppelin era photos of Robert Plant is the famous “Golden God” photo showing Plant in 1975 looking down from the Continental Hyatt balcony to a large billboard on Sunset Boulevard advertising the Led Zeppelin album “Physical Graffiti.”
Here’s a good example, check out this photo of Led Zeppelin receiving their very first gold record with manager Peter Grant and the man that signed them, Jerry Wexler on July 22, 1969 at The Plaza Hotel in New York. Then this happened on March 5, 1973 in Stockholm, Sweden to commemorate the sales of the “Houses Of The Holy” album.
The fourth album by Led Zeppelin was released on 8 November 1971. The untitled album has been most commonly referred to as Led Zeppelin IV. It has also been called, , Four Symbols, The Fourth Album, Untitled, Runes, The Hermit, and ZoSo.
“Early Days The Best of Led Zeppelin Volume One” was released on November 23, 1999 as part of a a two-volume compilation album series of some of Led Zeppelin’s early hits from their first four albums. The album cover features the members of Led Zeppelin in late Apollo mission astronaut suits in front of a starry background and a Led Zeppelin logo.
IMHO John Bonham’s Ludwig “Amber Vistalite” drum kit and Keith Moon’s Premier “Pictures of Lily” drum kit are the two most icoic Rock N’ Roll drum kits ever played. So as we always do in the feelnumb.com poll section, we ask for your opinion…
Swan Song Records is the now defunct record label launched by Led Zeppelin on May 10, 1974. Here is the Swan Song Inc. logo directly from their letterhead. The Swan Song company logo was based on this 1869 painting by painter William Rimmer called “Evening” or “The Fall of Day”, featuring a picture of the Greek god Apollo.
