#4. I suppose (if you want to be picky) that Zep themselves were the first band to be signed to their label (!), but the earliest one I can think of is Bad Company...

...and even that answer is dubious, as their British releases were on Island...

#7. Before Humble Pie, Frampton was also lead singer (and 'the face') of The Herd, who released a clutch of pretty nifty singles in 1967/68...

Gaylon,Rhonda,WB,Zella,Beth,Cat,Paul,Tanya and Jonathan,Thank You
all for participating,you all did fairly well.I really didn't think I could stump
anybody but I tried.Well Done!

The Led Zeppelin Question "THe Song Remains The Same".I asked this
question exactly like it was asked by our local radio station and answered it
with their correct answer.Both Beth and Jonathan answered differently but
gave the same answer.I am sure you know more about Zeppelin than me and
I thank you for the correction.
