Default Re: Led Zeppelin is Rediculous.

Strangelove, you're a hard man - lol

Sure, Fleetwood Mac and The Stones didn't have a class of Led Zep (I see David Bowie in a similar league, though), but the difference wasn't night and day.

I'm nore sure Zep had the class of Uncle Frank or King Crimson either, although I wouldn't say the latter (in their various incarnations) are better bands, just more sophisticated.

At some point with most listeners, gut feeling overrides extra musical sophistication. At what point that kicks in is an individual thing. If you're talking about influence, then sure, Zep are way up there.
