Lee Posted December 2, 2007 Share Posted December 2, 2007 Although I'm fairly mature myself (45 next month), I didn't start going to gigs until the late 70's. I'm sure there are a few people here that caught the band in the late 60's/early 70's. Obviously every band has good and not so good nights, but overall, how would you compare Zep to their peers? I've seen quite a few of the 'classic' bands of the era, such as the Who, the Stones, Pink Floyd (performing The Wall), Cream (2005 edition), Thin Lizzy, Bad Company etc. etc. All really great, but 4th August 1979 remains my favourite gig ever. However, I never got to see the Who until after Moon died (first time for me was August '79). I've seen the Stones a number of times over the years, but didn't see them in the 70's. Didn't see Cream in their 60's heyday. Most importantly never got to see Hendrix. So, if anyone out there had the good fortune to see any of these bands at their peak, would you rate any of them as better than Zeppelin? I'm curious as I regularly see the Who or the Stones or Springsteen cited as the best live act ever, and I've seen them all, and still rank Zep at the top.
