Led Zeppelin paved the way for arena rock, mystic rock, some metal, tranversing styles and genres, and playing what they like and being accepted for it. AND, they were all great musicians individually as well as together.
Led Zeppelin,awesome?you bet! just look at who took up most of the front row seats at their recent LONDON concert,very rich heavyweights like the MACARTNEY'S and the PRESLEY'S whom LED met with after the concert was over. awesome is an understatement.
rreal, i like your defence of the great LED ZEPPELIN but if you knew them as much as you think you do then you would know that they would vote for ELVIS before muddy waters or themselfs. get to know them.
