I was eleven years old, back in 2004, and my aunt bought me a Led Zeppelin t-shirt for my birthday. I was already listening to Bowie, Guns N' Roses and Aerosmith (since very early childhood). So naturally, I asked my mum to buy me a CD, so I could listen to the music that related to said shirt. She bought me 'Early Days and Latter Days', which I thought was an appropriate starter, and I got hooked on 'Good Times, Bad Times'.
I bought all their albums on vinyl and CD with my 'pocket money' that I saved up for months at a time. The best birthday present I ever received was standing tickets for me and my mum to watch Led Zeppelin at the O2 - I was just fourteen. Ever since I was bought that first compilation album, they've been my favourite band; some days it just feels wrong to listen to anything else. I fell in love with Robert's voice, Jimmy's wailing guitar, JPJ's tight bass playing and Bonzo's animalistic and unique drumming.
