    ....as other great bands? Don't get me wrong. A LOT of people know about them, but for some reason, they are not held in the same regards as The Beatles or Rolling Stones.....even The Who. Why is that?

    Hmmm, I always thought on the forum LZ gets more attention that The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who all together. :heheh:

    Dont know about the reality, never saw a situation like that.

    Led Zeppelin are one of the greatest bands in the world (Needless to say).

    It is understandable that the Beatles are held in greater regard because it is hard to find any bands before them who had as much impact to music world (globally) compared to them. They are pretty much the beginning of Rock music (There were lots of great solo artists before them too).

    Maybe they don't get as much attention in regular radio because they are they are much harder compared to the Beatles and the Stones and hence doesn't receive much attention?

    For me, I choose Led Zep to the Beatles and the stones any day any time.

    By the way, the radio station I listen to always give a very very high attention to Led Zeppelin. Never a day without one of their songs being played.

    Here in North America they get more attention than The Who. I would rank them #3 after The Beatles and Stones.

    Indeed I agree with Nolo, Zeppelin gets more attention here than the Stones, The Who and The Beatles put together.:heheh:

    I'd also add that as far as my experience in music forums go, Zeppelin fans are nearly as rabid about their band as any others I've run into.

    I am not sure where I'd rank Led Zeppelin on my list of all time great British bands, but in the top 10 certainly.

    Yup, they get more than enough attention. Our radio station plays a Zep song every single day on their "Get the Led Out" segment. There isn't any such treatment for the Stones or Beatles.

    Where exactly as you implying that Zeppelin doesn't get the attention of the other bands mentioned?

    I agree that Led Zeppelin is a top three band. The biggest difference is that they were not singles oriented as were The Beatles or Rolling Stones. FM stations and digital broadcasts have been more album friendly.
