ZEPLIN WAS ONLY NUMBER ONE WHEN THE Stones went throught down time between
B&B AND SOME GIRLS BUT THAT WAS IT. After Some Girls the Stones were back on top sold 5 million CD'S and concert after concert
Don't forget the Stones lost there founding member Brian Jones who was inovative to some of there early stuff Piant it black etc and still they continued
Zep loses John Bottom and are done. a Drummer a great drummer but Drummer at that
I really believe if Jones was able to hold on there would be no debate who the greatest is.
How many legendary bands lost there founding ,member(s) and still rocked?
ever notice Zeplin would avoid touring during the same time the Stones toured?
How many good CD'S THEY HAD 5 MAYBE 6? AND
ONE BAD IN THROUGH OUT DOORS?
After that they were done..
You can tll how great a band is by how much material it takes to peak
Look how many the Bealtles made etc....
How can you compare that to 17 studio cds in 8 years 64-72 Zep was a great band but very limited and did not go beyond their own fans
Mosy non rock fans can't tell you who robert plant is but all know Mick,
AND WHEN PAGE AND PLANT TOURED TOGETHER WHICH BASICALLY WAS ZEP THERE CONCERT NUMBERS DID NOT COME CLOSE.
And there music did not age as well it was great but how many adults sit and listen to Houses of the Holy?
It was manily great rock for young adult years
But Tumbling Dice etc no comparison.
Zeplin had there moment a great band but PLEASE...................
You think they would sell stadiums like the stones today no way
I know a lot of Zep fans that outgrew them. It was heavey music great with drugs
But very limited they knew it and is why they stopped after so very few alblums.
