When it comes to rock ‘n’ roll excess, nobody did it bigger and better than Led Zeppelin. During the dozen years that they were around, they managed to make new rules and break most of the old ones. They wrote the rulebook on touring etiquette, sold more records than almost anyone else and took the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle to superhuman new levels. But none of this would matter if the music didn’t live up to the legend. It does. From the blustery blues-rock of their self-titled 1969 debut to the flawless dynamism of their 1971 masterpiece ‘Led Zeppelin IV’ to the gargantuan stomp of their double-album epic ‘Physical Graffiti,’ Led Zeppelin crafted records designed to withstand decades of come-and-go trends. The death of drummer John Bonham in 1980 put an end to the band, but their music lives on.
