Top 10 Reasons Why Led Zeppelin Is Better Than the BeatlesMontyPython
The Top Ten
Ringo was possibly the smartest drummer of all time.
His singular job was to keep proper time and beat with the Lennon/McCartney [and later Harrison] compositions, by far the greatest ever in the pop/rock style.
Any of the flashy drummers, whether John Bonham, Ginger Baker, Keith Moon, etc, would have tried to make it about them, and not the phenomenal music.
Ringo was THE perfect choice for the greatest band of all time.
And that's a derogatory thing? Zeppelin is "better" because they don't overshadow others as much? Oh, Monty, you made me laugh - Billyv
Lol, if you love both bands, why make the list? But I do love both bands as well. - IronSabbathPriest
No Led Zeppelin song is that original
Let my explain something. both bands were great. while led zeppelin might have been a better band live, and was better with their instruments, but the beatles were mostly known for their vast influnce. there have been better bands than the beatles(see also:radiohead), but all of them have taken a large part of their playbook from the beatles. what i'm trying to say is that differnt bands are good at differnt things, and for the beatles, their influence is unrivailed plus, if you want heartfealt music, there's an album called blue(joni mitchell) that I'm listening to right now that you should listen to - RecklessGreed
Well, if it were like that, then the Insane Clown Posse would be better than both of these artists combined.
Actually, their Still going! Robert and Jimmy Page are still playing! - McKing1003
Zeppelin was known for their bloated, self-indulgent, incomprehensible live performances that sounded very little like their recorded output. The Beatles were so popular, the screaming drowned out anything you could hear, and the band were in constant danger of psychotic crazies, or simply being over-run by stampeding fans.
I'd call that a tie.
This is laughable. Have you ever heard of Hot Dog? Hats off to Roy Harper? Poor Tom? Led Zeppelin wrote some laughingly bad songs. Plus Obla-di-oblada is a great song. - TheStargazer
Incorrect: The Beatles did more genres in one album than LZ did in their entire careers.
Actually Led Zeppelin are one of the least varied bands
Possibly. I prefer George's sound. - Billyv
Well, I do prefer it. Lol. Along with his other multi-faceted and substantial contributions. - Billyv
any doubt? - zxm
I disagree. The Beatles had some differences between them, and some conflicts as most people spending so much time together in a small group in such unique situations, but there is no question or doubt that they all had a special affinity and Love and Respect for each other, overall and through most of their lives - Billyv
Yes,led zeppelin had better membership.cause you know in the beatles John and George had a conflict going on.but neither of zeps member had it. - zxm
John and paul played the leadership role.well paul was a quite good co-leader but john wasnt a good leader.he had many disagreements with george.but jimmy never had any kind of disagreement.he planned the band greatly.and from what I read John was one of the reason behind disbandment of beatles.if beatles was still here than they would make good music.but for their disbandment they couldn't - zxm
