Pink Floyd V's Led Zeppelin - Who should support who?


Recommended Posts

So what do you think about the Eagles touring again Electrophile? I Know you are a fan because of your previous Hotel Cal pic. Do you think they are getting greedy? And do you think that Zepp will tour?

What do the Eagles have to do with this thread? My opinion on them is not relevant to the discussion at hand.

And no, I don't think Zeppelin will tour.

Well, so much for trying to be friendly to you . Why dont you bitch at the others that keep making threads about a tour? I think the list is endless. It is a waste of time trying to be civil with you. If you think I have gone off the topic, look at some of the other threads. I have tried to play by the rules. You are just plain NASTY!!!!!!!!


Uhhhhh, okay?

This is kinda of a fantasy concept really. Its doubtfull enough that LZ will tour much less team up with Pink Floyd. If they did, PF would have to open for LZ or at least go on first. There are both awsome bands, all time greats but they are not nearly as equal as the average rock fan would have you believe. PF has been around alot longer and lack the consistancy that Zep had with much more filler and zone out music. Their live performance is awsome and the light shows have alot to do with that. The members of PF have even said they like to let the light shows do the talking. They could not match Zep's overall talent, consistancy, or charisma. They are very talented in alot of those aspects but just in different degrees. Page blows Gilmour out in pretty much every aspect. Take if from a guy who is a HUGE fan of both, i have no need to favor either one but the music and live performance speak for themselves.

In my opinion, although this would be an excellent concert, it would never happen. I wish it would so I could witness such a spectacle. But hypothetically speaking, if it did ever happen Pink Floyd would have to be the opener of these gigs. The reason, in my opinion, is that Led Zeppelin is the far more superior band. And I will give my reason for saying that. I say that because Led Zeppelin had the "couth" to call it quits when Bonzo died. Jimmy, Robert and John Paul knew that they "could not continue as we were". Sad, but true. Very dignified.

Now, from what I think I know, once Roger Waters quit Pink Floyd, David Gilmour and Company added about 10 or more extra musicians to replace one bass player. And on top of that Roger Waters actually sued his former band members in court to prevent them from touring as Pink Floyd. Although I am a fan of Pink Floyd, all that drama is too much to consider.

These four (4) musicians, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham would blow the ten (10) or fifteen (15) musicians that now comprise Pink Floyd out of any arena.

i dont care if these bands are different entities

theyre both amazing and i am a huge fan of both of em

It would be a quite a treat to see two legendary bands performing side by side

and i dont think pink floyds phsychadelic/progessive style will ruin Led Zeppelin hard/blues rock style

both styles are great to listen to an d should provide entertainment

Your father was a hamster and you mother smelled of elderberries!

While I love both Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, I don't think that they would go very well as a package. In my mind, the spaciness of Pink Floyd clashes sonically with the power and heaviness of Led Zeppelin. Let's look at both posibilites if Zep and Floyd toured together. If you put Zeppelin first, and Floyd second, for the members of the audience, it would be like someone drinking a super-duper energy drink, and then crashing after 2 1/2 hours. Transitioning from the intensity of Zeppelin to the mellowness of Pink Floyd just wouldn't work. However, if Floyd opened for Zeppelin, Floyd would not have enough time let their songs play out properly in order to make you travel to an alternate universe (which is part of the charm of Floyd). And then of course, after Floyd's set was over, the audience would be brought out of the mental paradise by Zeppelin's power, which would not feel good either.

It's only a flesh wound!

Agreed to all of the above..Both bands are very good but cannot be compared. It's like comparing star trek to star wars (damn another debate!) Anyways..Love zeppelin's music and power,,and love floyd's for the same reasons..

depends on the mood of the individual at the time.

Can i get a spanking?

I note David Gilmour of Pink Floyd was at the O2 gig this week. As rumours and hopes abound about both these legendary bands, maybe they could go on tour together...but who would top the bill? Would it matter anyway, what a gig that would be? Haha!

Silly question. I would invite you to park your arse by the stereo, listen to these bands and ask yourself "why did I pose that silly question".

I saw a Black Crowes reference on page one from two years ago. That would be my choice, actually Page and the Crowes should do another tour. The last one was pretty epic as I recall.

Plant shows no interest, Page can't possibly get another singer to fill in. So yeah, roll out the Southern Harmony-British rock god thing again.

What else is there to see?

Who are you? Page1

Who, who, who, who?

Who are you?

Who, who, who, who?


He’s the Magic Man, ya!


I am just a new boy

A stranger in this town

Where are all the good times

Who's gonna show this stranger around?


So the world is spinning faster. Are you dizzy when you're stoned

Let the music be your master. Will you heed the master's call

Oh... Satan and man.


Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.

Where have you been? It's alright we know where you've been.

You've been in the pipeline, filling in time,

provided with toys and Scouting for Boys.


You say you want a revolution

Well, you know

We all want to change the world

You tell me that it's evolution

Well, you know

We all want to change the world

But when you talk about destruction

Don't you know that you can count me out

Don't you know it's gonna be all right

all right, all right


Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream

I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been

To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen

They talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed


Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.

What did you dream? It's alright we told you what to dream.

Do you know my thoughts can, you read my mind

Do you dare to tell me, what it is you’ll find

Come on tell me what you’ll find, what lays hidden in my mind

I can see through you, I can hear you too

I can feel you touch my mind


Dream on, dream on

Dream yourself a dream come true

Dream on, dream on

Dream until your dream come true

Dream on, dream on, dream on...


I have my ship and all her flags are a flyin'

She is all that I have left and music is her name.

Think about how many times I have fallen,

Spirits are using me, larger voices callin'.

What heaven brought you and me cannot be forgotten.


Throw down a rope from heaven

And lead the flock to water

The man in the middle would have you think

That you have no other choice

But to wander in the wilderness

Of all the upturned faces

If you stop and listen long enough

You will hear your own small voice


Is there anybody there who feels that vibration Who shows me the way to my love Is there anybody there with that inclination To bring back the sun to my heart


Close the door, put out the light.

You know they won't be home tonight.

The snow falls hard and don't you know?

The winds of Thor are blowing cold.

They're wearing steel that's bright and true

They carry news that must get through.

They choose the path where no-one goes.

They hold no quarter.


I've got electric light

And I've got second sight

I've got amazing powers of observation

And that is how I know

When I try to get through

On the telephone to you

There'll be nobody home


You reach for the secret too soon.

You cried to the moon.


Well if you told me you were drowning

I would not lend a hand

I've seen your face before my friend

But I don't know if you know who I am

well I was there and I saw what you did

saw it with my own two eyes

so you can wipe off that grin

I know where you've been

It's all been a pack of lies


Come one you raver, you seer of visions, come on you

Painter, you prisoner, you piper, and shine


"A new age is dawning

On fewer than expected

Business as Usual"

That's how the headline read

Some shaky modern saviors

Have now been resurrected

In all this excitement

You may have been misled


Has he lost his mind?

Can he see or is he blind?

Can he walk at all,

Or if he moves will he fall?

Is he alive or dead?

Has he thoughts within his head?

We'll just pass him there

why should we even care?

He was turned to steel

in the great magnetic field

When he travelled time

for the future of mankind


I want to be with you

I want to be clear

but each time I try

it's the voice I hear

I hear that voice again

I'm listening to the conversation

judge and jury in my head

it's colouring everything

all we did and said

and still I head that sharp tongue talking

talking tangled words

I can sense the danger

just listen to the wind


You see the world through your cynical eyes You’re a troubled young man I can tell You’ve got it all in the palm of your hand But your hand’s wet with sweat and your head needs a rest And you’re fooling yourself if you don’t believe it You’re kidding yourself if you don’t believe it How can you be such an angry young man When your future looks quite bright to me How can there be such a sinister plan That could hide such a lamb, such a caring young man


Everybody else is just green, have you seen the chart?

It's a helluva start, it could be made into a monster

if we all pull together as a team.


Oh no, they say He’s got to go,

Go, go Godzilla


Sun turnin' 'round with graceful motion

We're setting off with soft explosion

Bound for a star with fiery oceans

It's so very lonely, you're a hundred

light years from home


Osama, be in fear of your life From the long arm of the law. Wingman has put an end to your gunnin’, He’s not so far from your home. The jig is up, the news is out We finally found you The renegade who lived in caves Retrieved for a bounty Never more to go astray This’ll be the end today Of the wanted man


Hangman, hangman, hold it a little while,

Think I see my friends coming, Riding a many mile.

Friends, did you get some silver?

Did you get a little gold?

What did you bring me, my dear friends, To keep me from the Gallows Pole?

What did you bring me to keep me from the Gallows Pole?


Sit down, take a look at yourself

Don't you want to be somebody

Someday somebody's gonna see inside

You have to face up, you can't run and hide


Hey everybody, don't you feel that there's something, but you know

in a moment it is gone.

I live for the day when I can hear people saying that they know and

they care for everyone

But I feel like I've been here for the whole of my life, never knowing



Did you do it for love?

Did you do it for money?

Did you do it for spite?
