Led Zeppelin History – Aug 13

Today in 1968, the New Yardbirds (Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham), all played together for the very first time when they rehearsed at a studio in London’s West End. The first song they played was a version of “Train Kept a-Rollin”. Jones has said that the room “exploded” when they kicked it off, and they knew they really had something. They also ran through a version of “Smokestack Lightning” and a version of “I’m Confused” (later to become “Dazed and Confused” on their debut Led Zeppelin album).
