    I thought it would be fun to square these 2 great bands off against each other and see what your preference would be. Between these 2 bands I'm going to have to go with Led Zeppelin. To my ears, the musicianship and lyrical depth of Led Zep is more to my preference.

    Love Sabbath but I will say Zeppelin by a longshot in every way!

    No way I could decide between them, though I will say that John Paul Jones and John Bonham are my favourite musicians out of all of the members of both bands. Or any other bands, for that matter. :D

    I live Sabbath but it is also Zep for me by a long shot. They played such a variety of musical styles each album was different than the ones before. Whether the music was either simple or complex, they wrote and played it all with excellence

    Black Sabbath all the way, I found Zeppeling music so boring, rhythm section is the only thing I like, cant stand the vocals and guitar is meh.

    Man!!! For the record Major, this is NOT fun; it hurts my emotional balance.
    Since you asked though, I'd have to go w/LZ; if only by a slight margin. IMO, they're some more versatile and perhaps they have a slight edge on talent.
     
  11. Sabbath. No contest.
     
  12. Sabbath is more my style, but I love Zep too. It took me a long time to like Zeppelin, mostly because of Plant's voice... It gets to me after a while.

    I'd go with a quiet evening instead.

    Part of the problem is some terrible sounding Sabbath recordings while Zep still sounds good so many years later. Zep.

    Love both. Probably listen to Zeppelin more often. Sabbath definitely wins in the creativity /originality department though

    I convert 4 string Rickenbackers to 5 string basses.
    Not even close ... Led Zep all the way.

    The 2 bands are not in the same league.
     
  18. If I had to pick, I'd go Sabbath I guess. For me AC/DC over both by a long shot though.

    John Paul Jones and John Bonham were one of the greatest rhythm sections ever, Jimmy Page was one of the best rock guitarists ever, and Robert Plant was one of the best rock vocalists ever. Zep FTW.
     
  20. Just watched Celebration concert. Shows that, like a fine wine, Zep definately aged better than Sabbath. I will say that Iommi and Geezer remain solid, sorry that can't be said for Mr. Sharon Osbourne though:bag:
