In another thread we have been debating which are the best R&R bands of all time.There are many excellent, some of which are all time greats. But IMO, what sets Led Zeppelin apart from any other is a conjunction of facts, talent, ability and atittudes. They were the only band to never edit a single album They were the only ones to break up when one of their members faltered They covered the widest range of music genres, blues, hard, even some methal, folk,arabic and indian Never cared about the press, the only ones who never depended on that Their life performances, still now, are considered the best and most exciting could improvise and play a song life in so many diverse ways Their 4 members are above the level musicians but their espiritual foundation, their perfect understanding and the joy of playing together made them a better result than the adittion of their individual talents. And, of course, there is that mistique No other group has been so influential, yet no other group has reached that level Jimmy Page is a true genious, Plant´s voice is the most amazing and charismatic, Jones is the most complete multinstrumentalist ever and, of course, Bonham was a revolutionary whose talent is almost unhuman Plant was the lungs, Bonzo the heart, Jones the mind and Page, simply the soul of that unique band, timeless. Boys and Guys, make no mistake.I love many bands like Who,Queen,AC DC,Deep Purple,CCR,LS,Sabbath,Cream,Humble Pie,Traffic,Rush,Yes,Pink Floyd,Kansas,King Crimson,Hendrix Eperience. But when we talk about R&R, Led Zeppelin is something else.
