Back In Time: Led Zeppelin members talk about The Beatles

Back in 1970 Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant and John Bonham were on a BBC interview. It was their first interview for British television and they talked about how the music scene was different from when they were growing up, on the London & The South East BBC show NationWide. They also talked about The Beatles.

Take a look:

First tour

The band began their first tour of the UK on 4 October 1968, still billed as the New Yardbirds; they played their first show as Led Zeppelin at the University of Surrey in Battersea on 25 October.

Tour manager Richard Cole, who would become a major figure in the touring life of the group, organised their first North American tour at the end of the year. Their debut album, Led Zeppelin, was released in the US during the tour on 12 January 1969, and peaked at number 10 on the Billboard chart; it was released in the UK, where it peaked at number 6, on 31 March.

According to Steve Erlewine, the album’s memorable guitar riffs, lumbering rhythms, psychedelic blues, groovy, bluesy shuffles and hints of English folk, made it “a significant turning point in the evolution of hard rock and heavy metal”.
