[VIDEO] Do you know which of their songs is played 4,203 times per year?
In fact, it was estimated that this song has been played the equivalent of 44 years at one point in time.
Led Zeppelin was born out of former members of the Yardbirds, and then the New Yardbirds, including Jimmy Page. They finally went with the name Led Zeppelin and played their first concert under that name in October, 1968 at Surrey University. Of course they went on to create some of the most iconic and well known hits of all time.
In a truly dramatic performance of one of those songs, the band was paid tribute at the Annual Kennedy Center Honors. This is one cover version that really does justice to the original. The members of the band clearly enjoyed it, and they didn’t know that their late drummer’s son, Jason Bonham, would be on drums.
Let us know what you think of this version!
