Page started his music career in London, recording and rising to prominence while still in his teens. He then formed The Yardbirds, which included other notable talents like Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck. Page later played guitar for the Led Zeppelin, a band that produced ten top-ten albums during the 1970s including Led Zeppelin IV (1971) Houses of the Holy (1973) and Presence (1976). Those albums also contained several rock anthems, such as “Whole Lotta Love”, “Good Times, Bad Times”, and “ Stairway to Heaven”. Page released a solo album in 1988 and has since reunited with Robert Plant, who was Led Zeppelin's lead vocalist.
