For a fifteen-year-old boy, winning a lottery for a pair of tickets to see Led Zeppelin on December 10, 2007 was the greatest moment of his life. Led Zeppelin had not played together since the mid-1980s. The band decided to play at a charity concert in London, England. Would they sound the same? Would they still have the charisma they had years ago? Yes. Led Zeppelin performed sixteen of their hits to an excited crowd.
Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Bonham, and John Paul Jones formed as the New Yardbirds in the late 1960s and soon changed their name to Led Zeppelin. With their bluesy rock and roll songs and rousing lyrics, they became one of the greatest rock bands.
