Led Zeppelin InTheStudio press release

Jimmy Page & Robert Plant Reveal Secret
To Led Zeppelin I Success InTheStudio

Dallas, TX - January 14, 2014. North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands commemorates a seismic event in rock history on the 45th anniversary of Led Zeppelin I with a revealing look back at the band's formation and the creation of its historic debut album with band architect Jimmy Page and legendary frontman Robert Plant.

Guitarist Jimmy Page of the Yardbirds and bassist John Paul Jones were young schooled London session players. Singer Robert Plant and drummer John Bonham were talented but untested English Midlands musicians whose raw musicianship and earthy feel were a surprisingly effective contrast. Together the four redefined the limits of rock music while magnifying its visceral power, its reckless abandonment and, yes, some of its faults. Led Zeppelin I received a surprising number of negative reviews from music critics, igniting a debate on whether white musicians could play Afro-American Blues without negatively exploiting the originators, a debate which would dog Led Zeppelin for their first four now-iconic albums.

On January 17, 1969 Led Zeppelin thundered onto the world stage with its debut album and songs "Communication Breakdown", "Good Times, Bad Times", "Dazed and Confused", and "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" displaying great musical diversity, dynamics, and sounds previously unheard in rock, electrifying the masses (if not rock critics) and selling north of 10 million copies in the U.S. alone.

Jimmy Page tells InTheStudio host Redbeard why he believes Led Zeppelin was so successful from the beginning.

"I think everyone was inspired in that band. I think everyone was a star. There wasn't a weakness there. Every single person was strong."
