“LZ. Bigger than the Beatles?” The Observer May ‘75

Recommended Posts

I found this sorting the Attic out. I remember being so proud the Band i worshipped we’re finally being heralded in a “Posh” Sunday Paper. The Oberver no less. (2nd Headline down...See pic) 

Although by this time they were at their juggernaut pomp with their fans, Parents of such would never have heard of them! 

The clever marketing catch phrase “bigger than the Beatles” (& not untrue!) got them real recognition outside Rock Circles.

They certainly have surpassed their longevity.  Though in a recent poll of Americans, the greatest rock group was the Beatles, I imagine many new rock fans probably gravitate to Led Zeppelin.  Music that will stand the test of time.

It's good for a cover, but no point in looking at who is better and at various pools. And modern music is based on The Beatles just as much as it is on Led Zeppelin, even if Led Zeppelin have got a heavier sound!
