I like being direct when I argue something, “cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.” Led Zeppelin is more than just a rock band: it had feelings. The band wisely took inspiration from the origins of rock and blues and mixed them with new sounds in order to make rock more progressive and fresh. Led Zeppelin combined roughly four different genres, folk, blues, hard rock and metal to make the sound that made them different in the music industry.
It was mixing of sounds and genres that made Led Zeppelin so original, at the time when many other bands were famous and considered ‘the best,’ but nobody was doing what Zeppelin was doing. With his ability to reach extremely high notes and effortlessly create beautiful falls, Robert Plans was able to bring a special sound and quality to Zeppelin’s lyrics. Plant’s ability to tell a story in which every word, every noise that came out of his mouth was a story worth telling makes Led Zeppelin one of the legendary rock bands of all time.
“There’s a feeling I get when I look to the west and my spirit is cryin’ for leaving”
These lyrics, from the song Stairway to Heaven are an example of the poetry and literary sophistication which not only gave Zeppelin fans, fame and fortune, but also gave them a a place in modern music that will never be forgotten.
Led Zeppelin is a band that revolutionised music forever. It introduced a new sounds and way of performing that is seen to this day, and will most likely be seen for many years to come. Their originality, creativity and innovation make them one of the most important bands in music history.
