If you have ever seen Led Zeppelin you know the power, the presence, and the varying concepts of light and shade in which they sway from one to the other throughout their performance. They were considered the quintessential live act in their heyday. Now, we only have left the many YouTube videos to show just how incredible and masterful they truly were.
Out of the shadows of Led Zeppelin have come countless cover bands and tribute bands. There must be well over a hundred in existence at the time of this writing, with almost every major city throughout the US having at least one, as well as many from around the world. I know this because I have studied the band, their music, their history, the legacy that continues - and I always will.
Led Zeppelin is so unique and so very special, it deserves more than just a "cover" or a "tribute" by another band, another group of individuals. The ultimate rock and roll band warrants a decisive and inclusive testimonial, an unparalleled recreation of their music, which is done with respect, loyalty and strict adherence to the essence of the original creators. I myself, and tens of thousands of other fans agree.
The time has come - they are here - GET THE LED OUT!
