    :rule: lets talk abt zeppelin.... no doubt the most technical heavy metal /rock n roll band of all time ....that why it is given 1. position in most of the ratings...both commercial and technical.

    the band combined the classic rock n roll , rhythm and blues,Folk music with heavy metal....and shaped the classic rock into new form which later became as heavy metal... :think: they were probably first ones to use Distortion guitars with rock n roll... :nw:

    commercially Zeppelin holds 2nd position with after beatles who helds the record for most selling albums ( sum of all albums)..and tecnically it is respected by most of the rock musiains...and inspired greatest bands.

    And aceept it or not Zeppelin still rules today!!!

    BLack Sabbath and Deep Purple were the most technical hard rock / heavy metal bands ...

    more than Led Zep

    infact how can u forget Steppenwolf (the ones who introduced the term heavy metal)

    many, but Jimi Hendrix really popularised it, way before Led Zepp

    but anyway Led Zep :rock:

    Pete Townshend and Jimi Hendrix are the pioneers of harder playing. Pete Townshen though wasn't a real class of a player was the first to do Stage Antics, Experimenting with Feedbacks and he was the first one in several of the tricks. Jimi Hendrix took this thing to a different level plus his own innovations. Infact Hendrix is given the credit for Feedbacks, Stage Antics, etc.. where Pete Townshend was the first to do it. Noticing the popularity of Hendrix with this Hard Blues, countless other came into the bandwagon trying out the forumla. People like Jimmy Page, Ritchie Blackmore, Uriah Heep, Wishbone Ash, Black Sabbath, etc.. followed the footsteps of Jimi Hendrix is creating harder music. Each of these were innovators and deserve great respect in their own right. Each of these kinda branched into a different style that is aped till today.

    Jimmy Page - Hard Blues Rock
    Ritchie Blackmore - Hard Rock with Neo Classical Influences.
    Uriah Heep - Progressive
    Wishbone Ash - Twin Lead Guitar Harmonies. Now you know where Maiden copied.
    Black Sabbath - Heavy Metal, Black Metal, Doom Metal, Gothic, etc...

    All of them though heavily influenced by Hendrix, have gone ahead to innovate further, than just practising faster licks because the brain cannot think further.

    Michael Jackson rocks. Really amazing. Today I heard Black or White in a shop and man it was awesome. Hearing it after a long was a nice experience.

    Jimmy Page is awesome. My fav album has to be Led Zeppelin I . It's so bluesy which you could only get from a les paul neck pickup. Black Mountain side is so good plus the tabla in the background is awesome.
    Jimmy Page was awesome on stage playing with a violin bow and for the use of the echo theremin which is SO COOOOOL!

    okiie jimi handrix was a greatest guitarist ...he was the most technical guitarist of all time .

    but led zeppelin as a whole group was Pioneer nad in Hard rock musik...because they combined the instrument...drums, distortion guitars , steel string bass ....and combined the classic rhythm n blues with rock n roll and distortion.......

    hendrix used distortion but his musik was not purely rock....that was rhythm n blues...
    so as a whole band Zeppelin takes the credit
