ZepTestHindenburgIt’s about time we got the Led out! So get ready to rattle the windows ’cause here we go.

The maiden voyage of the ZepTest™ jumps into the high-flying songbook of the biggest, baddest hard-rock band of the 1970s.

Led Zeppelin – the London-based quartet formed in 1968 – boasts two of the greatest musicians of all time in guitarist Jimmy Page and drummer John Bonham (and two of rock’s most underrated musicians in Robert Plant and John Paul Jones).

The band soared to mind-boggling heights, including eight consecutive #1 albums in the United Kingdom and selling upwards of 250 million albums worldwide – 111.5 million of those were sold in America. (To provide some context, The Rolling Stones have sold 66.5 million albums in the United States, and Bob Dylan has sold 36 million – less than one-third of Zep’s total.)
