my absolute favorite band of all time... the breadth and scope of their music is incredible. virtually every album was stacked wall to wall with not just good tunes, but *AWESOME* tunes...one after another. the last band that truly made album-oriented rock, not just music to be culled as singles and the rest of a mediocre album to be discarded. there have been few truly legendary bands, but IMO, Zeppelin's combo tops everyone, even the Beatles who i love. In terms of influence, nobody is bigger than the Beatles, but when you combine the range of musical styles, the live performances, the musical virtuousity, the sheer power and outright mystique, Zeppelin to me, is incomparable thoughts?
