.The band completed the Scandinavian tour as The New Yardbirds, playing together for the first time in front of a live audience at Gladsaxe Teen Clubs in Gladsaxe, Denmark on 7 September 1968.[22][23] However, it was clear to the band that performing under the old Yardbirds tag was akin to working under false pretences, and upon returning from Scandinavia they decided to change their name.^ On their first american tour they toured together and left and impression.

^ It was as if they were meant to play together.

^ The first time I recorded with it was with the Yardbirds.

[24] .One account of the band's naming, which has become almost legendary, has it that Keith Moon and John Entwistle, drummer and bassist for The Who, respectively, suggested that a possible supergroup containing themselves, Jimmy Page, and Jeff Beck would go down like a lead zeppelin, a term Entwistle used to describe a bad gig.^ What Keith Moon (who should be equal to John B) ACTUALLY said was "You'll go down like a Lead Zeppelin".

^ Moon stated that this band would go down like a "Lead Balloon," and soon thereafter he and Entwistle worked out their problems with The Who and the project fell apart.

^ I think Jeff had one too then, but I was the one who got the effect going again.

[25] .The group deliberately dropped the 'a' in Lead at the suggestion of their manager, Peter Grant, to prevent "thick Americans"[14] from pronouncing it "leed".^ Manager Peter Grant had a game plan.

^ Grant saw an opportunity when the Jeff Beck Group, managed out of the same office, canceled out on an American tour with Vanilla Fudge.

^ Peter Grant found himself involved in constant crisis management.

Influence on other musicians

When asked in 2006 what his biggest accomplishment was with Led Zeppelin, Page made reference to the band's legacy, particularly the way the band influenced and was recognised by their musical peers:
It's been a great legacy. That's what I'm proud of is the legacy of it. .The fact that it's turned so many people on to want to play.^ I just wanted to say how much I adore you, your music and your creativity.You've achieved so much and your music touches the hearts of so many people.

[191] However, noted blues author and producer Robert Palmer states "It is the custom, in blues music, for a singer to borrow verses from contemporary sources, both oral and recorded, add his own tune and/or arrangement, and call the song his own".[192][193] Folklorist Carl Lindahl, refers to these recycling of lyrics in songs as "floating lyrics". He defines it within the folk-music tradition as "lines that have circulated so long in folk communities that tradition-steeped singers call them instantly to mind and rearrange them constantly, and often unconsciously, to suit their personal and community aesthetics".[194]
In an interview he gave to Guitar World magazine in 1993, Page commented on the band's use of classic blues songs:
[A]s far as my end of it goes, I always tried to bring something fresh to anything that I used. I always made sure to come up with some variation. .In fact, I think in most cases, you would never know what the original source could be.^ I would be honored if you could email.

Maybe not in every case -- but in most cases.

They couldn't get us on the guitar parts of the music, but they nailed us on the lyrics. .We did, however, take some liberties, I must say [laughs].^ Though I'd have to say that some have reached Bonham's level of skill none of them can demonstrate those skills with as much power and force as he did.

.But never mind; we did try to do the right thing.^ What we tried to do was give Ritchie's mother credit, because we heard she never received any royalties from any of her son's hits, and Robert did lean on that lyric a bit.

In another interview, Page responded to the suggestion that Led Zeppelin used a lot of traditional and blues lyrics and tunes and called them their own:
.The thing is they were traditional lyrics and they went back far before a lot of people that one related them to.^ This classification is meant for people who want to sell things they have bought for their own personal use, and no longer want.
