In 1968, guitarist Jimmy Page brought together drummer John Bonham, bassist John Paul Jones and vocalist Robert Plant to tour as The New Yardbirds. A year later, the band — retitled Led Zeppelin — released its self-titled debut. In the years since, Led Zeppelin  sold more than 300 million albums worldwide, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, earned a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and feted at the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors.
