yeah exactly , Led Zeppelin were so much better considering instrumental work, beatles were shit no real guitars, no real bass , only drums were decent. And the style of Beatles songs in majority is better , it was selling great some time ago and now hip-hop or rap is selling great but it doesn't mean that for example some hip-hop "musican" is making better music than for example Praxis only because everyone knows him and he is earning much more money.

Led Zeppelin is history of Rock music as much as Beatles , it influenced such bands like Guns N' Roses, AC/DC, Aerosmith etc , beatles were making more mass music but they were still great. It is what I like about rock they could make great music in terms of lyrics. vocals and instrument and still be popular(in some cases of course)

Re: The 'Led Zeppelin Tribute' Thread

Sellings and knownig of band have nothing to do with quality of music look at guitarist some people could say that prince is better guitarist than buckethead cos he sold much more cds etc beatles were soft so they appealed to wider audience led zeppelin is so great complex band jimmy page owns almost everyone plant is great singer their drums very avantgarde etc there few so complex bands.

Definitely top-10. It's too bad it wasn't included in their live shows after 1970.

Led Zeppelin and the Beatles are too diffrent to be able to compare them.

I think Pink Floyd is more comprable to Led Zeppelin than the Beatles are. Songs like "Money" and "One of These Days" are comprable to "Whole Lotta Love" and "Moby Dick".

The only song I know of the Beatles that resembles Zeppelin in any way shape or form is "Come Together". Otherwise, vocaly and the way the bands play the guitars and the drums are too diffrent.

One thing that does go for the Beatles is the fact that they've sold 1 Billion albums, wheras Led Zeppelin has sold around 300 Million and Pink Floyd more than 250 Million albums worldwide.

I prefer Zeppelin to Beatles and Floyd to Zeppelin, all three are awsome bands IMO, but the Beatles at there moment were too big. They affected the way people dressed, and they inspired pretty much all subsequent rock bands. Hell, they still sell strongly today, whith remixes and box sets of the Beatles coming out all the time.

with the difference that you feel something in your legs listening to the beatles music. led zeppelin songs are boring and their voices are quite bad.

LZ is indeed a grat band...Comparisons are bitter so there's no need for them. Both The Beatles and Led Zeppelin are GREAT bands.

Ten Years Gone is my favorite Led Zeppelin song. Followed very closely by Stairway to Heaven

Oh, and Led Zeppelin > The Beatles

Oh, and of course "The Battle of Evermore" and "Kashmir".
Two true gems, classics, whatever.

No way The Beatles could pull off such stuff.
go on the streets and ask every person you meet if they know the beatles and led zeppelin. after you are finished count the numbers of votes for each band. i guess i know the result.

btw stairway to heaven is the only song i could name you from led zeppelin whereas i can name you a lot of songs from the beatles, elvis or michael jackson like most people in the world could do.
