Led Zeppelin Artist Page

Classic Rock Review has launched the first of many artist-centric pages with a tribute page to Led Zeppelin. This page connects to our extensive reviews of Zeppelin's albums as well as link to choice external resources to make it a hub of information on the group. The page was published on September 25th, which was the 36th anniversary of the death of drummer John Bonham in 1980, the effective end of the group's 12-year reign as a working band.
