In 2009 This Day in Music ran a poll to ask ‘If you could bring a dead rock star back to life, who would it be?’ The response was amazing with thousands of votes cast. The outright winner was Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham.

This gave This Day in Music the impetus to launch a series of apps celebrating the works of the biggest acts in the world.

Neil Cossar, MD of This Day in Music, is a life long Zeppelin fan: “I had the idea of making individual apps for some of the biggest acts in the world, and thought the best one to start with would be Zeppelin, because of their iconic status.” Neil has been continually adding to his This Day in Music database since 1992, so had already compiled a large proportion of the information needed for the project.

The team then spent over a year researching every gig Zeppelin ever played and checked out studio dates, live venues and many research books while setting about writing song notes about every studio recording. “It’s been a mammoth task, but at the same time very rewarding. It’s made me listen to every Led Zeppelin song, watch live performances and contact other Zep fans for their help. One thing I’ve learnt from this is that they were undoubtedly one of the finest rock bands (if not the best), we’ve ever seen. I was lucky enough to see Zeppelin live at The Hard Rock in Manchester, England when I was 14. They were absolutely brilliant: I can still see them walking on-stage, plugging in and then hitting us with a wall of sound! I remember being at school the following day, my ears still ringing.”

The app includes events like Jimmy Page seeing Robert Plant perform live for the first time with his group Hobbstweedle, the date all four members of Zeppelin played together for the first time, right though the band’s career to the 02 reunion show and Jimmy Page’s recent collaboration with The Edge from U2 and Jack White.
