my 2 personal favorite bands, and i was thinking if they were in a sort of battle of the bands who would win?

Zeppelin is probably better known as the essence of all rock bands
Sabbath is definatly better known as the first and greatest metal band

i often just listen to one of them for hours at a time

i want to know what u think.....who is better, based on lyrics, guitar riffs, base, and lead guitar

ozzy v.s. robert plant

billy iommi v.s. jimmy page

geezer v.s. paul jones

who is the best?i want ur opinion who is better?

one last thing
ROCK ON!!!

Ozzy wins, Page wins, geezer wins. Overall Sabbath IMO

yea, but perhaps this was meant to be...
there could be a handful of stoners somewhere in Jersey that are on the verge of creating a new metal...a new thrash metal...

...or were all screwed =]

You really can't compare them..

Black Sabbath was the defintion of metal and Zeppelin was rock.

John Paul Jones was more known for keys than he was for bass unlike geezer.

Page has a really different playing style than iommi.

and Ozzy and Plant are both amazing vocalists..

But Page was the better soloist because of his improv. Id say..
and
Ozzy is the better stage vocalist because hes still going.

EDIT****

Final decision.

sabbath is awesome, but jimmy page gives like 1000000000 extra points to zeppelin alone. ozzy and plant are pretty even, and i prefer geezer to jones, except for the fact that jones plays some awesome synth stuff the later zeppelin albums (and yes, i do like in through the out door, despite all the harsh critisism it has recieved).

lets just say that Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin are the 2 best bands of all time and end it!

another GIANT factor is the drummers. Bonham, with 15 minute drum solos, totally kicks ass
There is so much free time in college.
Thus I procrastinate.
Thus I get better at Guitar.

hey man i like that arguement esp_shredder

but when u listen to an iommi solo v.s. a page solo they arnt a whole lot differant
they are built on the same structure

ozzy has a great range, but in the few songs of BS that ive heard, he doesnt actually sing well - robert plant wins.
Jimmy Page rules, so - jimmy wins
again, on the few BS songs ive heard, the bass doesnt really jump out at me - John Paul Jones zeppelin rules

but again, i havent really heard many BS songs

I love both bands but I think it comes down to Ozzy beats Plant, Page beats Iommi Geezer beats JPJ and Bonham beats Bill Ward so now it would be a tie HOWEVER Zeppelin was WAY more than one genre and they had so many different songs where as songs like Paranoid, War Pigs, N.I.B., and many others are all based around the SAME chords and riffs which make Sabbath a little less musical in my eyes so in the end i pick zeppelin

Wow, you really dont know who you are talking about do you, first off its TONY Iommi, second its JOHN Paul Jones and third, where the hell are John Bonham and Bill Ward? thats one of the best matched out of the pair!
