Rolling Stones vs. Led Zeppelin- year to year, who wins out?

A shame as those were great bands / musicians. Suzi Quatro was the first woman rock star, the first to play an instrument competently and rock her ass off. No Suzi, no Patti Smith, Chrissy Hynde, Joan Jett, and most of the 90's lady musicians such as Tori Amos (genius) & Melissa Etheridge.

Suzi is, IMO, the most underrated rock musician period, just for her influence alone.

Nah sorry, don't agree, a blip in the early seventies who had a few hit singles. Nothing more than a novelty pop music act. Comparing Quatro to Patti Smith is like comparing a scribbled shopping list to Shakespeare.

This morning BBC 6 Music had the wonderful John Cooper Clarke (poet and rock icon ) on the Radcliffe and Maconie show, he requested an Elvis track (Blue Moon (sun session) which sounded lovely on a sunny Sunday moring . On yesterdays show they played Hearbreaker by Led Zeppelin.

Zep wins every time in my book, like the Stones, but love Zeppelin.

I was not trying to compare one to the other, I was only pointing out Quatro was the first, not the best but the first and indeed Smith and all the other women I mentioned themselves listed Quatro as a main influence.

Leather Tuscadero

Hubba hubba....

Even sexier was Roz Kelly, the woman who played Pinky Tuscadero. Unfortunately Roz is actually nuttier than squirrel shit, she is still alive but has a nasty penchant for trying to kill her neighbors with a shotgun.

Just saw the Paul Lynde Halloween Special (Amazon Prime) from 1976 which had Margaret Hamilton (wicket witch of the west) as co-host. Talk about cheese factor: Donnie & Marie, Kiss miming three performances (badly, including Beth). Its funny, I remember watching that live when I was a kid and thinking how cool it all was. Still like everyone on the show (except Kiss) but it is dated.

I do wonder how history will view the Stones & Zeppelin as well as other bands 100 years from now.

You did, yes. I am though shocked that Patti Smith would cite Suzi Quatro as an influence, "Can the Can",  c'mon now...

It's the context, not the substance I am referring to. Smith and other women rockers cite Quatro as in influence not so much for her artistic achievements (or lack thereof), but because of what she did as a whole. No other woman ever did what Quatro did up until that time (attitude, hard pop, played instrument). She showed women that a woman in rock need not be meek and demure, have a smooth voice, or acquiesce to the whims of her male counterparts within the band.

Both Grace Slick & Janis Joplin were true pioneers however Slick did not lead the Airplane and Joplin left BB to have a group formed around her by the record company but they listened to the producer, not Joplin. Quatro was one of the first woman to say, "my way or the highway" and actually get her way. The only other exception was Jinx Dawson from Coven but most were more scared of her than influenced by her which is a shame.

 

So they reference her kinda in a glass ceiling kind of way.
