its funny how Richards criticizes Bonham's drumming when Charlie Watts is nothing more than a metronome
When you're in direct competition with someone, it's hard to give an overly enthusiastic endorsement. Successful musicians like that will usually rave about their influences, ala Keef and Chuck Berry, but not their contemporaries so much.
I think with those particular two it's in part because when Zep broke through, they (Pete and Keith) were suddenly seen as being somewhat old news. Plus, as Pete says, Zeppelin in many ways eclipsed The Who and I say that as a big Who fan.
I can appreciate it, but never cared much for Led Zep music (though I am not a rock star).
Paul McCartney liked them.
Best cover band ever
I think Townsend summed it up: "Because they became so much bigger than the Who in so many ways in their chosen field".
And hear I was, didn't even know rock stars hated Zeppelin. Now I'm going to have to re-evaluate a lot of things and try to wrap my head around this.
cant go by him...he likes everyone
Jack White doesn't trust anyone who doesn't like Led Zep.
A lot of people don;t like Jack White.
There are 7 billion of us on our soggy rock hurtling through space - you can't please 'em all.
Because they are jealous of Leds success.
Zep had a better manager.
Ha! Your right just ask Spirit, and listen to Jeff Becks 1st solo album then compare to Pages!
I love Jack White.
I don't like Led Zeppelin at all. Wish I did, but I never got what all the fuss was about. Admittedly, I'm only 24 and not into most other classic rock either.
Yup. Jealousy. And that's a shame, because all three of those bands made tons of great music.
maybe it has something to do with the ultra tight low cut pants and no shirt... I know that doesn't work for me!
Maybe some people don't like Willie Dixon cover bands.
I love Led Zeppelin...he's great.
Afaic only the first two albums ripped off the blues guys. By IV they were totally original and inspirational.
