Default I don't listen to Led Zeppelin... introduce me!

In my time as a drummer over the last two years (it hasn't been long, has it?) and on these forums, i have heard unlimited praise for the legendary band known as Led Zeppelin, but never took the time to download and appreciate their music. Everyone on this forum loves John Bonham, and i finally want to see why. Thing is, i don't know where to start, what the best songs are (other than Stairway to Heaven), and what i should be expecting. I have heard some Zep songs before, but i have not yet truly experienced them, sadly.

Can you guys help me? I need somewhere to start. I feel kind of ashamed to not be listening to such a renowned music group. :D

Buy or D/L Zeppelin 4 (AKA "Zoso"). It's the magnum opus. contains most of those tunes you hear on the radio all the time. Physical Grafitti is pretty good too. I have to reservations against the older stuff, just never got into it.

Listen to any of it! Bonham's most famous:

Good Times, Bad Times (Led Zeppelin, 1969)
Dazed and Confused (Led Zeppelin, 1969)
How Many More Times (Led Zeppelin, 1969)
Whole Lotta Love (Led Zeppelin II, 1969)
Rock and Roll (Led Zeppelin IV, 1971)
When The Levee Breaks (Led Zeppelin, 1971)
Trampled Under Foot (Physical Grafitti, 1975)
Kashmir (Physical Grafitti, 1975)
In My Time of Dying (Physical Grafitti, 1975)
Achilles' Last Stand (Presence, 1976)
Hots on For Nowhere (Presence, 1976)
In The Evening (In Through the Out Door, 1979)
Fool in the Rain (In Through the Out door, 1979)
We're Gonna Grove (Coda, 1982)

And of course, the most awesome drum solo EVER .... MOBY DICK!
But as I said, listen to it all ... Zeppelin was a fine group of musicians.

A bit of a deep cut that you should look into: The Ocean.

Also make sure you hear "Hey hey What can I do" it's not on any albums but it's one of my favorites.

Zeppelin is great, enjoy the ride.

Listen to all the ones AnOasis mentioned, but start off with Achilles Last Stand. One of my favourite songs, mostly due to Bonhams driving force behind the kit.

Actually, they don't have alot of albums (not like KISS with 38 albums in their catalog) - just budget and get all of them. I'm a big fan of the Live at the BBC collection.

Hell, wasn't it a big deal that they're available on iTunes now? You could go there and hear 20-second snippets of tunes too.

In the studio a band can take their time to get the material just right. They also have the ability to go back and edit the material until it is perfect. They have the ability to edit it live as well, but it is limited. A live performance shows what they are made of. This band was made of the best material out there.

I have been listening to "How the West Was Won." It came out in May 2003, from concert material from 1972 tour in California. This is really a good introduction to the band. Jimmy Page considers Led Zeppelin to be at their musical peak at this point. This is the best live recordings of Led Zeppelin, in my opinion.

The other live album is from 1973 tour, The Song Remains the Same. From NYC, Madison Square Garden, where they got robbed at the box office. They made a movie of this tour, but it is not as good as the previous year's tour. By the way, I was at the concert that night they got robbed at the Garden.

There is another set of live shows, the BBC Sessions. It was material from four different 1969 BBC sessions, and 1971 Paris Theater in London.

From these live recordings, you can see how the band progressed, and how good they were live.

There's an excellent box set that encompasses almost every song mentioned here. My ex-wife got it for me one year for Christmas... best thing she ever did for me.

A long, long time ago in a hosue pretty far from where I am now, I downloaded all their albums and put them on in order and didn't skip a song. To this day they remain my favorite band of all time.

Along with the above mentioned tunes I would also suggest "Sick Again", "Achilles Last Stand", "The Lemon Song", "The Crunge" & if you really want too hear Bonham Power not "Moby Dick" but "Bonzo's Montreux" The one song IMO that goes unnoticed by Bonham fans.

Have fun,

yes to all of the above. i really think you should learn "good times bad times" to truly appreciate his genius. also check out how the gear JB used & how he tuned w/ Jeff Ocheltree:

this is also another good video treasure trove:

Walk into any hip espresso shop and within minutes, Led Zeppelin music will appear, as if by magic. For variety, they play the Beatles, too. It's like Christmas music during Christmas, except all year long.

It's embarrassing how overplayed Led Zeppelin and The Beatles are.

I agree. I love Zep, but it's too much some times. At least they could play Gallows Pole for once instead of Black Dog 45 times a day!

DMC, it's been years since I've heard Zep or the Fab Four on radio. Maybe it's a US thing?

I bought a DVD of a Zep gig - late period because it included some tracks from Presence. Robert explained that he had some ailment and Jimmy P was recovering from "sleeping sickness". Apart from JPJ, they were all really sloppy - very disappointing.

I have another, much earlier, DVD of the band and they're in blazing form. On nights and off nights, I guess.

Same here.......in fact I still have all their albums on vinyl. No turntable to play them on, but I can't bring myself to get rid of them.

I admit, I own very little Led Zeppelin, because every Zep song is played on the radio constantly. Any time I need to hear Bonham, he's right there on the radio.

That's why I like LZ III & Presence you hardly ever hear any of those tracks except for "the immigrant song" which is fine because it's so badass anyway.

There's a ton of Zeppelin songs I never hear on the radio. I guess it's not overplayed to me because I rarely listen to the radio anymore.

CODA: "Were Gonna Groove","Poor Tom", "Bonzo's Montreux". CODA was a nice surprise after JB passed.

Most classic rock stations seem to put their stuff on fairly often.

If you can't get a feel for them that way, you might want to get the Page / Plant "Unledded" video. It's a good introduction / overview to LZ's music. That's how I started. Then I bought the full boxed set.

Great stuff, lots of great gems in those 10 CDs.

Agreed. After I saw that I was listening to LZ's music constantly. I think that is what got me hooked.

Default Re: I don't listen to Led Zeppelin... introduce me!

There seems to be two groups of Led Zep fans - the ones who prefer the shorter rocky songs and the ones who prefer the extended songs - I fall into the latter group and suggest this shortlist:

Extended songs:
Stairway to Heaven
Kashmir
Since I've Been Loving You
In My Time of Dying
Babe I'm Gonna Leave You
The Rain Song
Achilles Last Stand

Short songs:
Rock and Roll
The Ocean
Whole Lotta Love
Immigrant Song
D'yer M'ker


The boxed set DVDs are very good too.

Not me. I like them all. They're one of the few groups (if not the only group) I can listen to from Zep I to Coda without skipping a song.

LOL!!

One I couldn't see here (if it's been mentioned and I missed it, then apols).....check out Night Flight off Physical Graffiti. Definitely one of my favourite Bonham drum tracks.....makes the song IMHO.

Yeah physical graffiti has a few where I listen to that bass drum and find it hard to believe he could play that with a single pedal.. The Wonton Song,and In my time of dying. Pffffttt',..Give me a break : )

I heard a very good tribute band last year and they played the Wonton song and I heard exactly where the drummer did not pull off the bass drum hits (:12--:14 and :23--:25 as I was actually waiting for it when they started the song.. I asked the drummer about it afterwards without being a dick and he said the only one's who notice are other drummers.. He has been working on it for a long time but not quite there yet and if he tries it and does not pull it off it throws his groove off and then the whole song suffers.

Good piece of advice actually, unless you own it in practice trying it in the middle of a song could be disastrous.
