    Hey....wait....I gotta new complaint.
    Why not DP and those whiny fucks from Seattle.
    Maybe in the wimps place they can have a shotgun with a gay sweater over it.

    The fact Deep Purple aren't in there and 80% of the other shit is, well, shit, suggests that this list is just another list full of shit.

    The band that brought you Smoke on the Water - the most readily identifiable riff in rock music - isn't in.
    That tells you all you need to know right there.

    Pretty surprised that both YES and The Zombies, did not get the nod.
    Meanwhile, Donna Summer gets in (???????)....

    I'd take Deep Purple over Zeppelin, any day of the week, but Blackmore made some scathing
    comments in regard to their possible inclusion, and that pretty much killed their chances right there.
    He's like the Jim Rice of rock 'n roll.

    But KISS!!!!!!

    KISS!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now KISS will fucking steal the show, with the soap opera between Ace/Peter vs. Gene/Paul.
    Not to mention you'll get pretenders like Tommy Thayer & Eric Singer in faux kiss grease paint,
    pretending to be essential members of the KISS legacy.

    These guys will over shadow whats left of Nirvana, and everyone else.

    As musicians, i prefer Gillan to Plant, Paice to Bonham, and Blackmore to Page.
    I'd keep John Paul Jones over Roger Glover, though.
    But then there's Jon Lord...

    Zeppelin got it right with things like "The Rover" and "Houses of the Holy" and "Custard Pie."
    Proto-Aerosmith, before Aerosmith.
    Swagger!

    But then there'd be the awful Hobbit lyrics and endless verses & bridges of, "Achilles Last Stand."
    DP would do similarly long jams, but they had almost fusion type chops to back it up.

    I do love Page though, despite the slop.
    He was unique & creative.
    Plant i can barely listen to anymore.

    Then there's the Stones...

    But the Stones are a whole other approach.

    I mostly agree, but I think that Led Zep's songwriting just dusts DP. Zeps records sound great, DP's sound muffled and shitty/thin. Zep is way sexier sounding too. DP is very "boys will be boys. Let's talk about cars". I have heard that DP was all about drink and anti-drugs...well, Zep was all about drugs. I prefer drugs.

    I never listen to shit like "Achilles...", I like "Misty Mountain Hop", Led Zep Pop Rock..."Good Times...", "Comm. Break", "Down By the Sea"... so much more varied than DP, too.

    I don't like Gillian voice (except his screams) or lyrics, and Plant can grate too. I can hear the cool improv of DP, but there's a wankiness to it that bothers me. A lot of it seems very superfluous, and...well, boring. I trace a lot of wank that came later, right back to DP. It's a distinctive type of wank, one that permeated rock soon after. In a way, the San Francisco bands had their wank-style (a meandering, stoned-out, erratic trip improv) and then came DP with a very arrogant, and kind of "schooled", classical pomp, that I don't like at all.

    I pretty much hate any Hammond organ after about 10 minutes.

    Van Halen had wank elements, but was so much more hook laden, and mad scientist sounding, that any wank was neutralized.

    Zeppelin composed some brilliant songs, like "The Rain Song."
    There is a delicate and beautiful thing mixed into a lot of their music.
    But then you hear 'Space Truckin,' and the thing is just mind blowing.
    Even if you dig farther back to, In Rock, it's just so ahead of it's time.
    Living Wreck, Bloodsucker, Flight of the rat, Hard lovin' man...

    It's like proto metal/punk, with flourishes of prog.
    Gillan is like a demon!

    DP...it's good stuff, and they hit on a song or two a record.
    Zep makes masterpieces, just whole albums with tune after tune.

    The fusion comparison is good (and bad), a lot of it just sounds like guys taking turns playing a bunch of notes, and it reeks of "we are professionals", and a pieced together band of all-stars. VH and Zep feel more organic to me, and even the way their careers have gone reveals that. The DP guys have all kinds of other bands, and it seems like a band of mercenaries.
