What do you know about Led Zeppelin, “the Biggest Band of the Seventies”?

The Led Zeppelin rock band is still widely regarded as one of the most successful, innovative and best-selling music bands in history.

The band’s musical influence on the world has been comparable with other influential rock giant supergroups in the history of audio recording, including: the Beatles; Jimi Hendrix; Santana; Rolling Stones; Pink Floyd; Deep Purple; Cream; Fleetwood Mac; Lyn Skynard, and the Who.

Their unique Led Zeppelin sound is marked by the music’s definitive speed, its heavy power, unusual rhythmic bass, rolling drum patterns, contrasting terraced dynamics, trancy melodic keyboards, wailing singing vocals, and distorted guitar riffs.

In the 1970s; Led Zeppelin embarked on many major stadium concert tours of North America; Europe and the world; and broke all concert attendance records, one after the other, along the way – during their tours.

On 30 April 1977, at one of their many sold-out concerts; the Led Zeppelin band set the world record for the largest attendance (to that date) for a single act show indoors with an attendance of 76,229 fans at the Pontiac Silverdome, Michigan –thereby eclipsing the earlier attendance record set by the Beatles.

Led Zeppelin was highly financially profitable throughout its career. But in the later half of the 1970s, towards the end of the decade; some of the band members began to have serious personal problems off-stage.

Later on, after being beset by a fatal tragedy in which one of them died; the band broke up and disbanded.

In 1995, Led Zeppelin was inducted into the ‘Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’; and the museum stated that: “the Led Zeppelin band were as influential during the1970s, as the Beatles were during the 1960s”. 

According to, the Guinness World Records 2009;  Led Zeppelin set another world record in 2007, for the “Highest Demand for Tickets Made for One Music Concert”; after 20 million people requested to buy tickets online for the Led Zeppelin’s single, one-off, reunion Tribute concert, that was held on 10 December 2007.

There is still a massive demand for Led Zeppelin’s music to date; with huge unprecendented cash offers being made for them to regroup; but the remaining band members have so far refused to restart the band again.
