Led Zeppelin’s self-titled debut album was released 49 years ago today (January 12.) Besides being one of the best albums of all time, Led Zeppelin also has one of the best opening tracks of all time, too.
On August 29, 1959, an up-and-coming band called The Quarry Men played the opening night of a new teen hangout called the Casbah Coffee Club in Liverpool, England. Of course, that band would go on to become The Beatles. (Perhaps you’ve heard of them?)
