Led Zeppelin are a highly rated British blues-rock outfit and statistically regarded as one of the most successful rock bands of the seventies. They first formed in 1968 from the remaining members of The Yardbirds, and consisted of Jimmy Page (b. 1944, guitar) Robert Plant (b. 1948, vocals) John Paul Jones (b. 1946, bass guitar / keyboards) and John Bonham (1948-1980, drums). They are considered one of the most influential bands in the world, becoming closely associated with the 'album-oriented rock' (AOR) format and progenitors of a style of rock music called 'heavy metal', although the band's musical output transcended heaviness, with strong blues, folk, psychedelic, classical, Celtic, and world music flavours in their recordings and acoustic live performances. The band also eschewed traditional promotional avenues in the industry, focussing on albums and concerts, without reliance on singles or television performances. The interaction of all four musicians on stage gave their live performances a visual counterpoint to voluminous intertwined harmonic and rhythmic structures of their compositions. Led Zeppelin remain one of the most popular bands of all time, having sold close to 300 million records, and millions of concert tickets worldwide. In the United States, Led Zeppelin has achieved 111.5 million certified unit sales, with all of their studio albums reaching the Billboard Top 10. Since 1985, the band has had several reunions with different drummers, most notably Jason Bonham (b. 1966) son of John Bonham.
