The British rock band Led Zeppelin was formed in 1968 in London. It was a mixture of blues and rock, and they are considered by many to be one of the first heavy metal bands. The band was made up of guitarist Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones on bass and keyboard, vocalist Robert Plant, and drummer John Bonham. They were wildly popular from the very beginning. On September 24, 1980, Bonham, who had been drinking heavily since his 16 shots of vodka for breakfast that morning, died after he aspirated his vomit. He died in Clewer, England. His death caused the breakup of the band.
