When the New Yardbirds were no longer a thing, Jimmy Page began making the transition to what would become Led Zeppelin. As has been the case for countless bands, Page held auditions for different roles in the group. Chris Dreja, who had played rhythm guitar and also bass guitar for the New Yardbirds, once discussed the auditioning process. John Bonham was an “absolute must-have.” Robert Plant was “iffy” after his audition. Plant, as you know, ended up winning the gig. Things worked out rather well for Plant and for Zeppelin.
