You're partially correct. Jimmy Page was in the Yardbirds with Eric Clapton. Imagine that, two of the best guitarist ever in the same group. Anyhow, when Page formed his band with Robert Plant, they named it "The New Yardbirds." Peter Townsend told Page that name would go down like a led zeppelin, and that's where the name came from.
