In 1968, Jimmy Page formed Led Zeppelin, one of the most influential, innovative and successful groups in modern music, having sold more than 300 million albums worldwide. The band rose from the ashes of the Yardbirds, when Page brought in Robert Plant, John Bonham and John Paul Jones. In 1969, Led Zeppelin released its self-titled debut which was produced by Page, as were all the subsequent albums.

Led Zeppelin was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005, and a year later was awarded the Polar Music Prize in Stockholm. The band was honored for its lifetime contribution to American culture at the Kennedy Center Honors in 2012. In recent years, the group embarked upon a reissue campaign of the band’s studio and live albums, along with their BBC sessions.
