12 THEY MADE HISTORY EARLY
One does not need to be an expert on music to know that Led Zeppelin made history in multiple ways throughout the decades. It turns out that trend began before most of the world had ever heard their iconic sound. Zeppelin received an advance of $143,000 upon signing with Atlantic Records, which was the largest deal of its kind for an unsigned artist/band at the time. That contract also included options, meaning that the entire agreement was worth $220,000. That’s good money if you can get it, especially if you have not yet proven to be worth it. We are confident in saying that Zeppelin earned their pay.
