Led Zeppelin, in my opinion, is rock music’s most legendary band, one which has no equal and probably never will. Attempting to rank their albums could be seen as a fool’s game, but still, I’ve endeavored to do so.
Between his powerful backbeat, innate sense of groove, and simplistic approach, Simon Kirke was at the forefront of laying the foundation for a new era of Rock ‘N’ Roll drummers.
Before the 1950’s there really wasn’t any such thing as “Rock ‘n’ Roll” as we know it today. Mostly a new form of music, dreamed up by the likes of Les Paul, and other like minded men of the day. These were men no longer interested by the politics of folk. These were men who lacked the time, and energy for the complexity of jazz.
