Oh boy, have I got the skinny on the complete Led Zeppelin remastered set. For the first time, one of the greatest bands in rock history is now available since Monday for download on iTunes.
What it means for you crazed Led Zep-pers is that you're gonna have a ball listening to all those rock classics on your MP3 player. Think "Stairway to Heaven", "When the Levee Breaks", "Whole Lotta Love" and many more. You'll be zapped!
What's the package like? It's a 165-track digital box set of the group's 13 legendary albums, including the new greatest hits compilation "Mothership".
The name, Led Zeppelin, came from Who drummer Keith Moon's idea that the group would sink like a lead balloon. Indeed they would create something heavy, but it wouldn't sink - it would set the model for the ultimate rock band in the years to follow.
Guitarist Jimmy Page, bassist John Paul Jones, and singer Robert Plant, and drummer John Bonham united to become the most deified rock band of the '70s, embodying excess, reinventing FM radio, and writing music that made you want to move your feet, shake your fists, bang your head, and basically act like a rock 'n' roll lunatic.
More news. Led Zep guitarist Jimmy Page has hinted that there may be a full-scale reunion tour. The band are set to play a one-off reunion show on Dec. 10 at The O2 in London.
The London show is to raise money for the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund, which pays for university scholarships in the UK, US and Turkey.
