There’s been a lot of accusations thrown at Led Zeppelin over the years: blues-ploitation, occultism, selling out. Yet despite the chorus of critics assembled against them, the mere mention of the band inspires awe in the majority of music fans. From the raw intensity of “Communication Breakdown to the cosmic sonorities of “Kashmir” to the dubbed-up funk of “D’Yer Mak’er,” Zeppelin’s music is constantly compelling. At the band’s height, Robert Plant sported a vocal range as wide as the Milky Way, Jimmy Page set new standards for sloppy perfection on guitar, and only John Entwistle could compete with John Paul Jones as the world’s most prominent bass guitarist. And although his aspirations led to his undoing, John Bonham is still revered by many as rock’s most powerful drummer. Together the quartet developed the mother tongue of metal: psychedelic blues phrases delivered at overdriven speeds. It is this legacy that will continue to be passed down with reverence by older brothers, uncles, fathers and eventually grandfathers to new generations of adolescents getting hip all over again to bell-bottoms, long hair, and marijuana.
