Sorry CowboyDan it couldn't wait any longer. It's time for the Main Event!
Not fair!!!! Love them both but Floyd was one of the most amazing concerts I saw and I saw them both
Oh man............ I don't think I can pick here. Seriously, this one might be too close to call. The quarter might have actually went up, landed on it's edge, rolled 20 paces and stayed standing. Called on account of rain.
Can't pick one here.
These 2 bands are my heros. They are both the embodiment of greatness. I can't choose
Pink Floyd were great but Zeppelin in their prime untouchable....by anyone.
ZOSO all the way
This thread seems wrong without Dan.
My 2 favorites, no one tops Floyd. Not in my book.
Zep for me.
I look at it like this: You have to be in the mood for Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin puts you in the mood.
Zep all the way
That is a good way to put it.
I think Led also has more variety of styles vs Pink Floyd.
Yes, "mood" is one way to put it. Or seriously mind altered :laugh2:
Comfortably numb :laugh2:
Easy decision. Pink Floyd
Pink Floyd. Easiest choice so far. The problem I have with Led Zeppelin is that each album had some great tracks...some of the greatest tracks in music history, no doubt...but the rest of the disc would be chaff. Also, Zep's music hasn't aged well to my ears. It just sounds 40 years old to me and I don't get that feeling at all with Pink Floyd (starting with DSotM, anyway).
Plus, Jimmy Page couldn't carry Gilmour's jock if he had a forklift to help him.
No disrespect to the man or the band intended...
You guys have no patience....
Led Zep for me. Meat-o-Rama nailed it. I love them both but Zep does it all and then some!
Soured on the fact that Zep "borrowed" many of their tunes.
Led zeppelin for me.
Good point. It was the norm during that time, but it is a shame that the original artists never saw a dime of royalties from that time period. That being said, the "borrowed" tunes were taken to a different level, sonically, by the likes of Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, Jon Bohnam and John Paul Jones.
Zeppelin for me Although I loved "The Wall"
