    how many bands have had their 4 members among the best in their instrument or vocals? I mean, a band of at least 4 guys.Only Yes and Deep Purple could get past them...but then comes the unit, the final result being greater than the adittion of individuals ( similar to Pink Floyd as well), and there, they are unreachable.

    Listening to Led Zeppelin 3.."That's the Way" is such a great song. Listen to Page during the last minute esp.

    I'm not sure if any other rock band could cause such a stir. They're still "In The Light".

    The Ocean

    "Sitting around singing songs till the night turns into day. You can sing about mountains but mountains wash away. Now I'm singing all my songs to the girl who won my heart"..... with those unmistakable drums from John Bonham, John Henry Bonham. Robert Plant would say, after a ten minute drum solo, "John Bonham, John HENRY Bonham".

    Yes, they have been sued numerous for stealing other people's songs. Numerous times they have had to change credit on songs proving their theft.

    I like the way Robert Plant often spoke to the crowd. He'd rock out and then speak so well and with an elegance. Know what I mean?

    Tangerine
    When he talks about the ups and downs
    BTW Dyer Maker and Thank You may be the least Zeppelinesque songs but I can listen forever
    There is where you realize what stuff did those dudes had inside

    Anyone sued them
    Because they made so much money that they became a target

    If it was just because of money, they wouldn't have been forced by the law to changed credits on songs. The truth wins in the end. Truth was not on the side of LZ.
