|Led Zeppelin Worked Damn Hard|
They say that for every action, there is an equal reaction. If that's true, then it makes sense rthat, back in the day, Led Zeppelin's achievements were the appropriately proportioned fruits rof their efforts. In the five years between September of 1968 and July of 1973, Led Zeppelin rtoured incessantly. In those five years, they had a total of 15 months break, spread out revenly over those five years, in between every group of three or so tours.
That means that in those five years, they spent a total of 45 months on tour in places like Scandinavia, the UK,
North America, Europe, Iceland, Japan and Australasia. Not only that, the band released five records that music
critics synonymously regard as 'classic albums'.

Led Zeppelin II
Each were different than anything that had come before them, and decades later, have influenced some of the
greatest artists to have come along in the last 20 years. In 15 months, Led Zeppelin wrote, recorded and
released 210 minutes of music, a bare minimum of which could be considered 'filler'. Some of the songs:
Stairway to Heaven, Black Dog, Good Times, Bad Times, Ramble On, Immigrant Song, Communication
Breakdown, Dazed and Confused, When the Levee Breaks.
Led Zeppelin III
Some of those songs changed the face of music in the day, and can still be considered intricate and meticulously
layered, even by today's standards. Arguably, Robert Plant's vocal ability and range has yet to be outshone, forty
years later. Jimmy Page's innovative guitar chops were stunning back then, and still are today.

Led Zeppelin IV
John Paul Jones' keyboard playing finesse and ingenious involvement of more exotic instrumentation would be a
rarity, even today. John Bonham's drum technique and foot speed was in awe back then, and still is, and his
style was intensely fresh. When The Levee Breaks is still the most sampled drum beat in music history. The
band sold 111.5 million records in the US, and they're the country's second highest selling band.
Houses of the Holy
So what do you think? Is it true that you get out what you put in? There's no doubt
that Led Zeppelin worked as hard as a band can without breaking up, and in that
sense, their efforts yielded appropriate results. Do you agree/disagree?
|List is also digs. lol|
|Some of their songs does feel really dry, but that's no surprise, seeing as to how many they churned
out in that period. Another thing is that I've seen a couple videos outlining how they plagiarized
some of their classics.
I hardly ever listen to them any more, because I realize I can just be listening to Black Sabbath

Yeah well Pogrom aren't playing accessible music and they probably don't want to headline Rock am Ring.
