Led Zeppelin: Whole Lotta Love

Led Zeppelin is an English rock band formed in 1968 in London. The line-up consisted of guitarist Jimmy Page, singer Robert Plant, John Paul Jones on bass and keyboards and drummer John Bonham. Originally known as the New Yardbirds, they achieved remarkable success from 1969 to 1979. The group disbanded in 1980 following the death of John Bonham.

Led Zeppelin is seen as one of the progenitors of heavy metal due to their heavy, guitar-driven sound, a style they drew from a wide range of influential music including blues, folk and psychedelia. As such they are considered one of the most innovative and influential rock groups in history.

Whole Lotta Love is the opening single from the album Led Zeppelin II. Released in 1970 in the US and Europe, however it was never a single release in the UK. Nonetheless, it was the first Led Zeppelin single to sell over a million copies becoming the group’s first gold disc.
