I like Zeppelin, have followed them since early 70's, have bought all their albums (8-tracks, cassettes). Yes, some argue they are actually a blues band that plays rock too. A lotta good stuff. Just loved Physical Graffitti, Precense, In Through The Outdoor, Song Remains....#1, #4...
But here's the way I see it. Jimmy Page....he is a good/great guitarist when he is not doped up (which was too often, so much wasted talent) but even straight he is not a God or anything like that....just one of the best...Top 10. Plant....well...he sings...just like Roger Daltrey sings too....and like The Who...bass and drummer are very good but not Gods. Call it a draw.
But I take the creativity and chemistry between Daltrey and Townsend WAAAAY over Plant/Page as the criteria that makes The Who the better band. Dats my opinion and I'm sticking to it.
