Terry Reid was Jimmy Page's first choice to be lead singer for The New Yardbirds, the band that would eventually be known as Led Zeppelin. Of course the vocal duties would be taken by Robert Plant. Terry Reid sang backing vocals on Jackson Browne's album "Late For The Sky," and one of his songs, "Speak Now Or Forever Hold Your Peace" was covered by Cheap Trick on their "Live At Budokan" album

Terry Reid is one of the most under appreciated artist in music history because of poor commercial sales, but when you give it a listen you'll be blown away. Then when you realize how young he was when he started and how he's still going to this day! Terry says he doesn't even mind because he feels he created the greatest rock n' roll band, Led Zeppelin, by declining Jimmy Page's request and instead suggesting Robert Plant. Also, even though it was due to circumstances, as with Led Zeppelin, he also rejected to lead Deep Purple. He's a true unsung legend and as you may be able to tell by now I really believe he should be inducted.
